Dynamic DNA motors and structures

Abstract:

DNA nanotechnology uses the Watson-Crick base-pairing of DNA to self-assemble structures at the nanoscale. DNA nanomachines are active structures that take energy from the system to drive a programmed motion.

In this thesis, a new design for a reversible DNA motor and an automatically regenerating track is presented. Ensemble fluorescence measurements observe motors walking along the same 42nm track three times. A second new motor was designed to allow motors on intersecting tracks ...
