Poly-L-lysine (PLL) dendrimers are promising systems for biomedical applications due to their biocompatibility. These dendrimers have a specific topology: two spacers of different lengths come out of each branching point and thus the branching is asymmetric. Because of this asymmetry terminal groups are located at branches of different lengths, unlike dendrimers with a symmetric branching. This paper presents the results of the first systematic molecular dynamics simulation of such asymmetric… CONTINUE READING
