Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow Anna Simon, PhD, publishes: Exploiting the conformational-selection mechanism to control the kinetics of a "smart" DNA hydrogel

  • Friday, April 27, 2018

Learn more about what 2017 AOB Postdoc Anna Simon (University of Texas Austin) has been working on: ABSTRACT The sequence-specific hybridization and molecular recognition properties of DNA support the construction of stimulus-responsive hydrogels with precisely controlled crosslink geometry. Here we show that, as predicted by the conformational selection mechanism, the response kinetics of such a hydrogel can be tuned over orders of magnitude by modulating the thermodynami ..
