DNA is an ideal target for single-molecule manipulations. The conformation of stacked basepairs in DNA depends sensitively on various factors such as temperature, the kind of solvent and counterions, changes in the backbone, applied forces, etc. This raises the question of whether the rate of charge transfer (CT) through the stack can be considerably… CONTINUE READING
