Combinatorial chromophore assembly inside a DNA four-way junction

Rajkowska, Katarzyna; Probst, Markus; Häner, Robert (6 September 2013). Combinatorial chromophore assembly inside a DNA four-way junction. CHIMIA, 67(7/8), p. 523. Bern: Schweizerische Chemische Gesellschaft

In 1964 first proposed by Robin Holliday as a mechanistic model to solve the mystery of how genetic information is exchanged in yeast, the DNA four-way junction or Holliday junction (HJ) was proofed to be the key in- termediate in homologous recombination and became an important tool in the field of DNA origami, computation and nanomachines. Herein we use the assembly of four modified nucleic acid strands into the planar square conformation of this higher order DNA structure to demonstrate in a proof of principle manner the cumulative effect of pyrene moieties interacting inside the junction.[1][2]
