DNA nanotubes and their interaction with membranes: insights through multiscale molecular dynamics simulations

Abstract:

DNA origami offers the possibility of developing novel membrane-spanning pores with potential applications in therapeutics and in nanosensors. In this work multiscale molecular dynamics simulation approaches have been employed to understand the dynamics of a DNA nanotube, and of its interaction with lipid bilayer membranes. All-atom simulation studies performed on the DNA nanotube model allowed exploration of its conformational dynamics, and of its interactions with ions and water molecule...
