Abstract: We study the properties of moving breathers in a bent DNA model with short range interaction, due to the stacking of the base pairs, and long range interaction, due to the finite dipole moment of the bonds within each base pair. We show that the movement of a breather is hindered by the bending of the chain analogously to a particle in a potential barrier
