The X-ray crystal structures of a decamer sequence d(CGCGTACGCG)(2) and a tetradecamer sequence d(CGCGCGTACGCGCG)(2) are presented here. Both sequences are alternating pyrimidine-purine repeat sequences and they form disordered, pseudo-continuous left handed Z-type helices. They demonstrate interesting variants of the bundles of columns of helices' mode of packing.
