Antiparallel

[electronics] In electronics, two anti-parallel or inverse-parallel devices are connected in parallel but with their polarities reversed. One example is the TRIAC, which is comparable to two thyristors connected back-to-back (in other words, reverse parallel), but on a single piece of silicon. Two LEDs can be paired this way, so that each p...

Antiparallel

[biochemistry] In biochemistry, two biopolymers are antiparallel if they run parallel to each other but with opposite alignments. An example is the two complementary strands of a DNA double helix, which run in opposite directions to one another. ==Nucleic acids== Nucleic acid molecules have a phosphoryl (5`) and a hydroxyl (3`) end. This no...

[mathematics] In geometry, anti-parallel lines can be defined with respect to either lines or angles. ==Antiparallel vectors== In a Euclidean space, two directed line segments, often called vectors in applied mathematics, are antiparallel, if they are supported by parallel lines and have opposite directions. In that case, one of the associa...
