Abstract
Conformational changes of (lambda) -phage DNA macromolecules by dynamic light scattering (DLS) method were investigated. It was shown that the persistence length of B-form DNA could reduce to small value in some conditions, and could achieve approximately equals 12 nm. When studying the internal motions in the linear form of (lambda) -DNA, there was observed the deviation of the experimental angular dependence of the first cumulant (Gamma) from theoretical predictions for the (Gamma) in Rouse-Zimm model including hydrodynamic interactions. This deviation appears in region qRg >> 1. The first cumulant deviation to the higher frequencies is observed only for B-form DNA. Experimental behavior of the first cumulant (Gamma) for the A-form DNA coincides with the theoretical one in the Rouse-Zimm model.
