What is the most important stabilizing interaction for a DNA helix?
Contrary to popular belief, stacking is more important than interstrand hydrogen bonding. If you were to place two single strands on DNA is an aqueous solution, the stacking interaction can overcome the energy required to break the hydrogen bonding of the nitrogenous bases with the water molecules. In essence, base base stacking is very important to helix stability.
