Nanopores are under development for the detection of a variety of analytes and the investigation of chemical reactions at the single molecule level. In particular, the analysis of nucleic acid molecules is under intense investigation, including the development of systems for rapid, low-cost DNA sequencing. Here, we show that DNA can be translocated through an engineered alphaHL protein pore at pH 11.7, a value at which dsDNA is denatured. Therefore, the alphaHL pore is sufficiently stable to ...Expand abstract
