Abstract

Cyto-fluid dynamic theory, which clarifies the inevitability of the size ratio of purine and pyrimidine in the base-pairs, is extended to reveal the inevitability of the spiral-shaped double-strand of bases-pairs, i.e., DNA. First, we will define the cluster consisting of a nitrogenous base and water molecules as continuum flexible particle. Then, momentum conservation law and quasi-linear stability theory clarifies the inevitability of spiral shape of B-DNA.
