It is observed that a single condensin complex is able to extrude tens of kilobase pairs of DNA at a force-dependent speed of up to 1500 base pairs per second, using the energy of adenosine triphosphate hydrolysis.
Electronic structure of atomically resolved carbon nanotubes
- Jeroen W. G. Wilder, L. Venema, A. Rinzler, R. Smalley, C. Dekker
- 1 January 1998
Carbon nanotubes can be thought of as graphitic sheets with a hexagonal lattice that have been wrapped up into a seamless cylinder. Since their discovery in 1991, the peculiar electronic properties…

The solid-state nanopore proves to be a surprisingly versatile new single-molecule tool for biophysics and biotechnology.
Salt dependence of ion transport and DNA translocation through solid-state nanopores.
Experimental measurements of the salt dependence of ion transport and DNA translocation through solid-state nanopores show a three-order-of-magnitude decrease with decreasing salt concentrations from 1 M to 1 muM, strongly deviating from bulk linear behavior.
Direct measurement of electrical transport through DNA molecules
