REVIEWS OF TOPICAL PROBLEMS

On regularities of spontaneous formation of structural hierarchies in chiral systems of non-living and living nature

Faculty of Physics, Lomonosov Moscow State University

Abstract: A general regularity of spontaneous formation of alternating sign L-D hierarchies of chiral structures, initially non-homogeneous due to homochirality, has been considered. Mechanical, hydrodynamic, macromolecular, liquid-crystal systems, together with protein and nucleic acids have been investigated. Chirality of biomacromolecules is related to the asymmetry of a carbon atom and to the formation of helical intra- and supramolecular structures. Chirality is a physical instrument of stratification and folding in biomacromolecular systems. Cell molecular biology as a whole comprises the periodic system of alternating sign chiral structures.
