In science:

The unzipping of DNA is a competition between the binding of the base pairs (to be called monomers) and the orientation of individual links connecting the monomers. A force applied at any point (say the end point) gets transmitted to individual bonds to orient each one in the direction of the force.
Randomly forced DNA
If DNA is dissolved into deuterated water, when the opening of a base pair exposes to the solvent the protons that form the hydrogen bonds, the so-called imino protons, those protons can be exchanged with deuterium from the water molecules of the solvent.
