2 1 D ec 2 00 4 DNA condensation and redissolution : Interaction between overcharged DNA molecules

Abstract

The effective DNA-DNA interaction force is calculated by computer simulations with explicit tetravalent counterions and monovalent salt. For overcharged DNA molecules, the interaction force shows a double-minimum structure. The positions and depths of these minima are regulated by the counte-rion density in the bulk. Using two-dimensional lattice sum and… (More)
