Folding DNA into Twisted and Curved Nanoscale Shapes
Stressful Self-Assembly One way to control shape during the assembly of an object is to design in stresses that cause a planned amount of deformation. Dietz et al. (p. 725; see the Perspective by LiuExpand

Tug-of-War in Motor Protein Ensembles Revealed with a Programmable DNA Origami Scaffold
Push Me, Release, Pull You In eukaryotic cells, nearly all long-distance transport of cargos is carried out by the microtubule-based motors kinesin and dynein. These opposite-polarity motors moveExpand

Dynein achieves processive motion using both stochastic and coordinated stepping
Processivity, the ability of single molecules to move continuously along a track, is a fundamental requirement of cargo-transporting molecular motors. Here, we investigate how cytoplasmic dynein, aExpand

Three-Dimensional Structures Self-Assembled from DNA Bricks
Building with DNA One route for assembling three-dimensional (3D) DNA nanostructures is to start with a long natural DNA single strand and attach short strands, or “staples,” that cause the entireExpand
