B-DNA A right-handed conformation of the DNA double helix which is stable at high humidity and is considered to be the biologically most important form. B-DNA is in equilibrium with the left-handed, Z-DNA, conformation. The equilibrium depends upon parameters such as cations in the environment and covalent modifications of DNA. The B-DNA helix has two grooves (one major and one minor) as opposed to the Z-DNA helix which has only a single groove.
