Letter from Aaron Klug to Francis Crick


Title:
Letter from Aaron Klug to Francis Crick
Creator:
Klug, Aaron
Recipient:
Crick, Francis, 1916-2004
Date:
15 October 1976
Description:
Klug here added further results of X-ray diffraction studies of crystals of chromatin undertaken in his laboratory. "Kinking" was a hypothesis developed by Klug and Crick about the way in which chromosomal DNA is folded: not by bending, but by joining of nearly straight sections of about 200 base pairs in length by large kinks. See Crick and Klug, "Kinky Helix," Science 255 (June 12, 1975), pp.530-33.
