Hydrophobic self-assembly of a perylenediimide-linked DNA dumbbell into supramolecular polymers.

Abstract

The self-assembly of DNA dumbbell conjugates possessing hydrophobic perylenediimide (PDI) linkers separated by an eight-base pair A-tract has been investigated. Cryo-TEM images obtained from dilute solutions of the dumbbell in aqueous buffer containing 100 mM NaCl show the presence of structures corresponding to linear end-to-end assemblies of 10-30… (More)
