New DNA Research Study Findings Recently Were Reported by N.M. Hessari and Co-Researchers

May 6, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators publish new report on DNA Research. According to news reporting originating in Ljubljana, Slovenia, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "The ability to produce, reproducibly and systematically, well-defined quadruplex DNA nanowires through controlled rational design is poorly understood despite potential utility in structural nanotechnology. The programmed hierarchical self-assembly of a long four-stranded DNA nanowire through cohesive self-assembly of GpC and CpG sticky ends is reported."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "The encoding of bases within the quadruplex stem allows for an uninterrupted -stacking system with rectilinear propagation for hundreds of nanometers in length. The wire is mechanically stable and features superior nuclease resistance to double-stranded DNA. The study indicates the feasibility for programmed assembly of uninterrupted quadruplex DNA nanowires."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "This is fundamental to the systematic investigation of well-defined DNA nanostructures for uses in optoelectronic and electronic devices as well as other structural nanotechnology applications."
