Self-Assembly of Functionalizable Two-Component 3D DNA Arrays through the Induced Formation of DNA Three-Way-Junction Branch Points by Supramolecular Cylinders
Journal article, 2010

(Figure Presented) Bringing all the pieces together: By arranging the blunt-end duplex DNA strands of "continuous" three-way junctions around themselves through noncovalent interactions and inducing the formation of local "discontinuous" three-way junctions, supramolecular cylinders promote the self-assembly of 3D DNA networks with tunable physical and chemical properties (see the arrangement of the junctions in the portion of the lattice structure shown).
