Kinetics of RNA and RNA:DNA hybrid strand displacement
TLDR
Comparison of RNA displacement and DNA displacement with hybrid displacement is in part explainable by the thermodynamic stabilities of the respective toehold regions, but also suggest that the rearrangement from B-form to A-form helix in case of RNA invading DNA might play a role in the kinetics.
Kinetics of RNA and RNA:DNA Hybrid Strand Displacement.
TLDR
It is found that mismatches closer to the interface of toehold and duplex slow down the reaction more than remote mismatches, and the rearrangement from B-form to A-form helix in the case of RNA invading DNA might play a role in the kinetics.
Coarse-grained modelling of supercoiled RNA.
TLDR
OxRNA, a recently developed coarse-grained model of RNA, exhibits a positive twist-stretch coupling constant, in agreement with recent experimental observations, and predicts denaturation bubble formation in plectoneme end-loops, suggesting preferential plect oneme localisation in weak base sequences.
The Use of Minimal RNA Toeholds to Trigger the Activation of Multiple Functionalities.
TLDR
The use of single-stranded RNA toeholds of different lengths to promote the reassociation of various RNA-DNA hybrids, which results in activation of multiple split functionalities inside human cells, result in higher yields for hybrid nanoparticles with ssRNAtoeholds.
Exploration of the Kinetics of Toehold-Mediated Strand Displacement via Plasmon Rulers.
TLDR
An exploration of the dynamic process of the toehold-mediated strand displacement via core-satellite plasmon rulers at the single-molecule level and the difference in the kinetics of strand displacement between DNA/RNA and DNA/DNA duplexes is revealed.
Measurement of Kinetics of Hammerhead Ribozyme Cleavage Reactions using Toehold Mediated Strand Displacement
TLDR
A probe comprising a fluorophore and a quencher, enabling measurement of hammerhead ribozyme cleavage reactions, without labeled RNA molecules, regular sampling or use of polyacrylamide gels, and allows to distinguish between the total amount of cleaved ribozymes and the amount of detached fragments, resulting from that cleavage reaction.
Strand displacement: a fundamental mechanism in RNA biology?
TLDR
It is argued in this review that this reaction is likely to play a key role in multiple cellular events such as gene recombination, CRISPR-based genome editing, and RNA cotranscriptional folding.
An emergent understanding of strand displacement in RNA biology.
First passage time study of DNA strand displacement
TLDR
A novel single-molecule Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer approach termed the “fission” assay is used to obtain the full distribution of first passage times of unimolecular strand displacement, and it is inferred that the single-step displacement time is in the range of ∼30 µs to ∼300 µs depending on the base identity.

On the biophysics and kinetics of toehold-mediated DNA strand displacement
TLDR
This work study strand displacement at multiple levels of detail, using an intuitive model of a random walk on a 1D energy landscape, a secondary structure kinetics model with single base-pair steps and a coarse-grained molecular model that incorporates 3D geometric and steric effects to provide a biophysical explanation of strand displacement kinetics.
Control of DNA strand displacement kinetics using toehold exchange.
TLDR
This work improves the understanding of the kinetics of nucleic acid reactions and will be useful in the rational design of dynamic DNA and RNA circuits and nanodevices.
Programmable energy landscapes for kinetic control of DNA strand displacement.
TLDR
A new method based on the creation of mismatched base pairs as kinetic barriers to strand displacement is introduced, and oxDNA, a coarse-grained model of DNA, is demonstrated to be capable of accurately predicting and explaining the impact of mismatches on displacement kinetics.
Dissociation of long-chain duplex RNA can occur via strand displacement in vitro: biological implications.
TLDR
This work investigated the dissociation of a double-stranded RNA with 56 bp in vitro, indicating that strand displacement can be fast and, more importantly, could be tightly regulated in vivo.

We introduce a coarse-grained rigid nucleotide model of DNA that reproduces the basic thermodynamics of short strands, duplex hybridization, single-stranded stacking, and hairpin formation, and also
A nucleotide-level coarse-grained model of RNA.
TLDR
A new, nucleotide-level model for RNA, oxRNA, based on the coarse-graining methodology recently developed for the oxDNA model of DNA is presented, arguing that the model can be used for efficient simulations of the structure of systems with thousands of base pairs, and for the assembly of systems of up to hundreds of base Pair.
Sequence-dependent thermodynamics of a coarse-grained DNA model.
TLDR
A sequence-dependent parametrization for a coarse-grained DNA model originally designed to reproduce the properties of DNA molecules with average sequences is introduced, able to fit parameters to the melting temperatures of thousands of sequences.
DNA hairpins destabilize duplexes primarily by promoting melting rather than by inhibiting hybridization
TLDR
The results should assist experimentalists in designing sequences to be used in DNA nanotechnology, by putting limits on the suppression of hybridization reaction rates through the use of hairpins and offering the possibility of deliberately increasing dissociation rates by incorporating hairpins into single strands.
DNA hybridization kinetics: zippering, internal displacement and sequence dependence
TLDR
This work explores DNA oligomer hybridization kinetics using a coarse-grained model and explains why experimentally observed association rates of GC-rich oligomers are higher than rates of AT- rich equivalents, and how association rates can be modulated by sequence choice.
Simulating a burnt-bridges DNA motor with a coarse-grained DNA model
TLDR
A recently-developed coarse-grained model of DNA is applied to the study of a ‘burnt-bridges’ DNA motor consisting of a single-stranded cargo that steps processively along a track of single-Stranded stators, finding that an increased distance can suppress successful steps due to the build up of unfavourable tension.
