1. A-form DNA (A-DNA)
One of several forms that can be assumed by a double helix. A-DNA is stable in dehydrated conditions. This form is less common than the dominant form found under physiological conditions -- szlig-DNA. This form is also assumed by DNA-RNA hybrid helices and by regions of double-stranded RNA . It is a right-handed helix and is a more compact form than szlig-DNA.
