Confined water nanofilm promoting nonenzymatic degradation of DNA molecules.

Abstract

Many important physical, chemical, and biological processes taking place in nanoscopic confined water environments may behave very different from that in bulk. In this paper, we report an unusual nonenzymatic degradation of DNA molecules in the confined water nanofilm on mica substrate. We found that the half-time of DNA in the degradation process in the… (More)
