Z-DNA is a double-helix whose strands are linked by base pairs. DNA encodes genetic information in the sequence of these bases (adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine). The coiling strands are made from a sugar phosphate polymer. DNA can adopt different configurations. Z-DNA (zig-zag form), with its left-handed helix, is slimmer than the standard, right-handed, B-DNA.
