Poly(dG-Me5dC) is known to exhibit a B→Z transition in the presence of very high concentrations of NaCl. For the first time, we report the presence of a Z-structure in sodium concentrations as low as 0.5 mM. A novel Z⇔B⇔Z transition is observed as the salt concentration is gradually increased. The role of water structure in B to Z transitions is discussed.
