Term Detail
GO term:DNA binding, bending
Synonym: DNA bending activity
Synonym: DNA bending involving DNA binding
GO id:GO:0008301
Definition:The activity of binding selectively and non-covalently to and distorting the original structure of DNA, typically a straight helix, into a bend, or increasing the bend if the original structure was intrinsically bent due to its sequence.
