Hydrodynamic effects on the translocation rate of a polymer through a pore.

Abstract

The translocation of large DNA molecules through narrow pores has been examined in the context of multiscale simulations that include a full coupling of fluctuating hydrodynamic interactions, boundary effects, and molecular conformation. The actual rate constants for this process are determined for the first time, and it is shown that hydrodynamic… (More)
