Re: Charge transport through DNA

I've read that the strand of DNA is conductive along the stacked bases, supposedly by electrons flowing through the pi orbital systems of the bases. It was proposed that the electrons move from one base to the next though the close proximity of the pi clouds when the bases are stacked ...

Base Pair COncentration

... interactions as the bases stack. It's not a correction for the number of bases, but for a shift in the energy of the absorbtive transition due to orbital interactions (that it, it corrects for the proximity of the bases to other bases and their relative orientation). The hypochromic effect is ...
