The DNA open states, which are locally unwound regions of the double helix within which hydrogen bonds between complementary nitrous bases are broken, are often modeled as quasiparticles – DNA kinks. Most of the works on the DNA kinks are devoted to the studies of their dynamic properties, as well as their role in the functioning of the molecule. However, if not one but N open states are formed in the DNA molecule it is reasonable to consider the problem of the statistics of the ensemble of N DNA kinks. The statistical properties of such an ensemble are still poorly understood. In the present work, we study these properties applying new data on the dynamic characteristics of DNA kinks.
