TY - JOUR. T1 - Intermediate tunnelling-hopping regime in DNA charge transport. AU - Xiang, Limin. AU - Palma, Julio L.. AU - Bruot, Christopher. AU - Mujica, Vladimiro. AU - Ratner, Mark A.. AU - Tao, Nongjian. PY - 2015. Y1 - 2015. N2 - Charge transport in molecular systems, including DNA, is involved in many basic chemical and biological processes, and its understanding is critical if they are to be used in electronic devices. This important phenomenon is often described as either coherent tunnelling over a short distance or incoherent hopping over a long distance. Here, we show evidence of an intermediate regime where coherent and incoherent processes coexist in double-stranded DNA. We measure charge transport in single DNA molecules bridged to two electrodes as a function of DNA sequence and length. In general, the resistance of DNA increases linearly with length, as expected for incoherent hopping. However, for DNA sequences with stacked guanine-cytosine (GC) base pairs, a periodic ...

Gene regulation requires highly specific interactions between proteins and their DNA binding sites. This high level of binding specificity in protein-DNA readout is achieved through the recognition of both linear sequence (base readout) and three-dimensio
S phase starts when the restriction checkpoint of the G1 phase is passed. Then, two important things happen: replication of DNA and duplication of centrioles (in animal cells). DNA replication DNA is made up of two single strands of deoxyribonucleotides or bases. The two single DNA strands are joined together by hydrogen bonds established by complementary bases (adenine-thymine, cytosine-guanine), that gives a helical double DNA strand. The two single DNA strands are oriented in an anti-parallel manner. That is, the 3 end of one of the strands is close to the 5 end of the other strand, so that there are 3 and 5 ends of single strands in every end of the double strand. For DNA replication, the two single strands become separated after breaking the hydrogen bonds so that both single strands may be replicated. Replication of DNA does not start from just one point, this would take too long. Instead, there are many replication origins, which are sites where replication starts at about the same ...

Cytosolic DNA stimulates innate immune responses, including type I interferons (IFN), which have antiviral and immunomodulatory activities. Cyclic GMP‐AMP synthase (cGAS) recognizes cytoplasmic DNA and signals via STING to induce IFN production. Despite the importance of DNA in innate immunity, the nature of the DNA that stimulates IFN production is not well described. Using low DNA concentrations, we show that dsDNA induces IFN in a length‐dependent manner. This is observed over a wide length‐span of DNA, ranging from the minimal stimulatory length to several kilobases, and is fully dependent on cGAS irrespective of DNA length. Importantly, in vitro studies reveal that long DNA activates recombinant human cGAS more efficiently than short DNA, showing that length‐dependent DNA recognition is an intrinsic property of cGAS independent of accessory proteins. Collectively, this work identifies long DNA as the molecular entity stimulating the cGAS pathway upon cytosolic DNA challenge such as ...

DNA strands across human beings are very similar, but there is a correlation between the discrepancies between DNA sequences and phenotypic conditions such as cancer or heart disease. Because DNA is so small, and has so many components, it is not reasonable to simply look through the entire strand for the sequence of interest. This report used a technique that amplified specific DNA strands which is called Polymerase Chain Reaction or PCR. This technique uses a primer that identifies and replicates a specific Single Nuleotide Polymorphism(SNP), if present. For this to work, the DNA strand and primer need to go through a cycle of temperature shifts that allow the DNA to replicate. The steps are denaturing, annealing and extension. The denaturing process happens when the system is heated to the point where the DNA strands are changed into single strands. After this the annealing step involved cooling the DNA strand and reconstructing of the double stranded DNA. Extension then takes place which is ...

In gene-centered yeast one-hybrid assays, two types of "DNA baits" are used to identify interacting TFs: single copy C. elegans genomic sequences such as gene promoters, and artificial baits such as (putative) cis-regulatory DNA elements [5]. EDGEdb contains information about i) DNA bait sequences and genomic coordinates; ii) all 934 predicted C. elegans TFs [19], i.e. their DNA binding domain, and, where available, dimerization partners and consensus binding sites; iii) protein-DNA interactions between DNA baits and TFs; and iv) where available, the transcriptional consequences of such protein-DNA interactions (see below). In total, the database contains 605 protein-DNA interactions between 115 C. elegans gene promoters and 176 TFs. In addition, the database contains protein-DNA interactions for 3 short DNA sequences that were either found by us or by other groups (referred to as "artificial baits", see e.g. ZTF-2 or DAF-12). Finally, the database contains 24 TF protein-protein dimer ...

DNA in vivo is principally found in a highly condensed state within chromosomes, viruses, and bacterial nucleoids often packaged via multivalent cations. Despite the critical role that the condensed DNA in chromosomes plays on gene expression and DNA replication within eukaryotic cells, the dominant molecular forces which drive this condensation are not fully understood. In recent years, new theories have been proposed to explain DNA-DNA attractive forces which lead to condensation but experimental data capable of distinguishing between these theories has been sorely lacking. We have used osmotic stress coupled with small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) to probe the magnitude and dependence of the thermodynamic forces between condensed DNA helices.\\\\ This talk will be divided between two topics. In the first part, I will discuss force measurements on condensed DNA arrays in the presence of cations ranging from simple ions to complex real proteins. Using homologous polycations, we have measured ...
First, the effects of intervening mismatches on DNA structure, dynamics and DNA charge transport reactivity is examined. The pi?stacked DNA base pairs mediate charge transport chemistry over long molecular distances in a reaction that is exquisitely sensitive to DNA sequence dependent conformation and dynamics. To examine the long-range charge transport as a function of intervening base mismatches, a series of DNA oligonucleotides were synthesized that incorporate a ruthenium intercalator, [Ru(phen)(bpy?)(dppz)]2+ (phen = 1,10 phenanthroline; bpy = 4-butyric acid-4-methylbipyridine; dppz = dipyrido[3,2-a:2,3-c]phenazine) linked covalently to the 5 terminus of one strand and containing two 5-GG-3 sites in the complementary strand. Single base mismatches were introduced between the two guanine doublet steps, and the efficiency of transport through the mismatches was determined through measurements of the ratio of oxidative damage at the guanine doublets distal versus proximal to the ...

Since the famous discovery of the structure of the DNA double helix, referred to as the canonical, right-handed B-form DNA by Watson and Crick, experimental evidence has revealed the existence of more than a dozen alternative (or non-B) DNA secondary structures. These include, among others, stem-loops (also known as cruciforms or hairpins), triplexes or H-DNA, quadruplexes or G4 DNA, A-DNA, and Z-DNA The important role of DNA secondary structures in various genomic processes is documented experimentally in genomes of many organisms from bacteria to humans. It was shown that stem-loop structures can function as terminators, attenuators, promoter and recognition elements, while cruciform structures play roles in DNA replication, and genetic instability. Triplexes (H-DNA) have been shown to play roles in transcriptional repression, recombination, and genetic instability. Quadruplexes can regulate DNA replication, gene expression, and telomere maintenance. A-DNA can play an essential role in

The discovery of the B-form structure of DNA by Watson and Crick led to an explosion of research on nucleic acids in the fields of biochemistry, biophysics, and genetics. Powerful techniques were developed to reveal a myriad of different structural conformations that change B-DNA as it is transcribed, replicated, and recombined and as sister chromosomes are moved into new daughter cell compartments during cell division. This article links the original discoveries of superhelical structure and molecular topology to non-B form DNA structure and contemporary biochemical and biophysical techniques. The emphasis is on the power of plasmids for studying DNA structure and function. The conditions that trigger the formation of alternative DNA structures such as left-handed Z-DNA, inter- and intra-molecular triplexes, triple-stranded DNA, and linked catenanes and hemicatenanes are explained. The DNA dynamics and topological issues are detailed for stalled replication forks and for torsional and structural

Molecular wires show promise in nanoscale electronics, but the synthesis of uniform, long conductive molecules is a significant challenge. Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of precise length, by contrast, is synthesized easily, but its conductivity over the distances required for nanoscale devices has not been explored. Here we demonstrate DNA charge transport (CT) over 34 nm in 100-mer monolayers on gold. Multiplexed gold electrodes modified with 100-mer DNA yield sizable electrochemical signals from a distal, covalent Nile Blue redox probe. Significant signal attenuation upon incorporation of a single base-pair mismatch demonstrates that CT is DNA-mediated. Efficient cleavage of these 100-mers by a restriction enzyme indicates that the DNA adopts a native conformation accessible to protein binding. Similar electron-transfer rates measured through 100-mer and 17-mer monolayers are consistent with rate-limiting electron tunnelling through the saturated carbon linker. This DNA-mediated CT distance of 34 nm
Molecular dynamics (MD) studies of several radiation originated lesions on the DNA molecules are presented. The pyrimidine lesions (cytosinyl radical, thymine dimer, thymine glycol) and purine lesion (8-oxoguanine) were subjected to the MD simulations for several hundred picoseconds using MD simulation code AMBER 5.0 (4.0). The simulations were performed for fully dissolved solute molecules in water. Significant structural changes in the DNA double helical structure were observed in all cases which may be categorized as: a) the breaking of hydrogen bonds network between complementary bases and resulted opening of the double helix (cytosinyl, radical, 8-oxoguanine); b) the sharp bending of the DNA helix centered at the lesion site (thymine dimer, thymine glycol); and c) the flippingout of adenine on the strand complementary to the lesion (8-oxoguanine). These changes related to the overall collapsing of the double helical structure around the lesion, are expected to facilitate the docking of the ...

DNA molecule. Computer artwork of the molecular structure of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). The DNA molecule is composed of two strands twisted into a double helix. Each strand consists of an outer sugar-phosphate backbone (red) with nucleotide bases attached (blue). There are four different nucleotide bases. It is the varying sequence of these four bases along a DNA helix that forms the genetic code for that individual. A typical DNA molecule can contain a sequence that is many millions of bases long. The genetic code in DNA is the basis of all life on Earth. - Stock Image G110/1128
The DNA samples are then loaded into wells of an agarose gel and electrophoresed, along with loading dyes (see procedure below). An electrical field applied across the gel causes the DNA fragments in the samples to move from their origin (a sample well) through the gel matrix toward the positive electrode. Small DNA fragments migrate faster than larger ones, so restriction fragments of differing sizes separate into distinct bands during electrophoresis. The loading dyes are of 2 different sizes, corresponding to very small DNA fragments and very large DNA fragments. They can be seen as the electrophoresis progresses, and they form a bracket in between which the DNA fragments are moving. Otherwise, one cannot tell how far the DNA fragments have moved through the agar. The characteristic number and pattern of bands produced by each restriction enzyme are made visible by staining with a compound that binds to the DNA molecule--- methylene blue.. ...

Tumor suppressor protein p53 possesses two DNA-binding sites. One that is located within its core domain is responsible for sequence-specific DNA binding of the protein, non-specific binding to internal segments of single- or double-stranded DNA, and to certain kinds of non-B DNA structures. The other that is contained in the C-terminus of the protein binds to damaged DNA. Binding of active, latent, and in vitro-activated p53 protein to DNA fragments modified by antitumor cisplatin was studied using electrophoretic mobility shift assay in agarose gels and immunoblotting analysis. We found that both latent and active p53 forms bound to random sequences of DNA globally modified by cisplatin with a higher affinity than to unmodified DNA. Interestingly, the latent form exhibited a more pronounced selectivity for platinated DNA than the active p53. Consistently with this observation, the preference of the latent form for platinated DNA decreased as a consequence of the activation of latent p53 by ...

ChiP (Chromosome Immunoprecipitation) is a technique where DNA binding proteins, like transcription factors, can be localized to regions of a DNA molecule. We can use this method to identify which DNA sequences control expression and regulation for diverse genes. In the ChIP procedure, cells are treated with a reversible cross-linking agent to "fix" proteins to other proteins that are nearby, as well as the chromosomal DNA where theyre bound. The DNA is then purified and broken into smaller chunks by digestion or shearing and antibodies are used to precipitate any protein-DNA complexes that contain their target antigen. After the immunoprecipitation step, unbound DNA fragments are washed away, the bound DNA fragments are released, and their sequences are analyzed to determine the DNA sequences that the proteins were bound to. Only few years ago, this procedure was much more complicated than it is today, for example, the fragments had to be cloned before they could be sequenced. When microarrays ...

After immunoprecipitation, the protein-DNA cross-links are reversed and the DNA is purified. The enrichment of a particular DNA sequence or sequences can then be detected by a number of different methods.. Standard PCR methods are often employed to identify the DNA sequences or regions of the genome associated with a particular protein or histone modification (1,2). PCR is used to measure the relative abundance of a particular DNA sequence enriched by a protein-specific immunoprecipitation versus an immunoprecipitation with a non-specific antibody control. PCR products are run on an agarose or acrylamide gel to facilitate quantification, and the level of enrichment of the DNA sequence is determined relative to the total amount of input DNA (percent of input). The level of enrichment can also be expressed as fold enrichment above background (enrichment relative to that of the non-specific antibody control). Real-Time PCR provides a more accurate, gel-free system for the quantification of DNA ...

First the DNA/Primer mix is combined with the PCR reaction mix in a small test tube. Repeat samples are advised to make sure that the results are consistent. When the test tube is placed in a PCR machine, the mixture is heated to 95 degrees Celsius for 30 seconds. This high heat breaks apart complementary strands of DNA, exposing the nucleotides. The DNA strands are essentially cut in half lengthwise into two new strands. The machine then rapidly cools to 57 degrees Celsius for 30 seconds, allowing the DNA primers to bind to the exposed sites. The DNA primers can only bind to the specific site they are complementary to, which allows researchers to target specific DNA sequences. Even if only one nucleotide is different, the primer does not bind well enough to stay. This means that researchers can choose a specific gene, such as one predisposing for cancer, and order a primer that binds only to that gene. If the specified gene is not present, the primer will not bind and the DNA will not be ...
The backbone of the DNA strand is made from alternating phosphate and sugar residues.The sugar in DNA is 2-deoxyribose, which is a pentose (five-carbon) sugar. The sugars are joined together by phosphate groups that form phosphodiester bonds between the third and fifth carbon atoms of adjacent sugar rings. These asymmetric bonds mean a strand of DNA has a direction. In a double helix the direction of the nucleotides in one strand is opposite to their direction in the other strand. This arrangement of DNA strands is called antiparallel. The asymmetric ends of DNA strands are referred to as the 5 (five prime) and 3 (three prime) ends, with the 5 end being that with a terminal phosphate group and the 3 end that with a terminal hydroxyl group. One of the major differences between DNA and RNA is the sugar, with 2-deoxyribose being replaced by the alternative pentose sugar ribose in RNA ...
Emory physicist Laura Finzi uses magnetic tweezers and minuscule metal beads to tug on individual DNA molecules. Her lab studies the mechanics of DNA transcription, the first step in the expression of a gene, a process that is partly regulated by the bending and uncoiling of DNA. Protein-mediated loops in DNA operate like genetic switches. Often, when a loop is closed, transcription is "off" and when the loop is open, transcription turns "on." In other cases, the loops connect proteins to turn on transcription. Identifying the physical and mechanical parameters of this process could lead to a better understanding of the causes, and potential treatments, for many diseases ...
James Watson and Francis Cricks 1953 discovery that DNA consists of two complementary strands suggested a possible copying mechanism for Mendels genes [1,2]. In 1958, Crick argued that "the main function of the genetic material" is to control the synthesis of proteins. According to the " Sequence Hypothesis," Crick wrote that the specificity of a segment of DNA "is expressed solely by the sequence of bases," and "this sequence is a (simple) code for the amino acid sequence of a particular protein." Crick further proposed that DNA controls protein synthesis through the intermediary of RNA, arguing that "the transfer of information from nucleic acid to nucleic acid, or from nucleic acid to protein may be possible, but transfer from protein to protein, or from protein to nucleic acid, is impossible." Under some circumstances RNA might transfer sequence information to DNA, but the order of causation is normally "DNA makes RNA makes protein." Crick called this the " Central Dogma" of molecular ...

According to the " Sequence Hypothesis," Crick wrote that the specificity of a segment of DNA "is expressed solely by the sequence of bases," and "this sequence is a (simple) code for the amino acid sequence of a particular protein." Crick further proposed that DNA controls protein synthesis through the intermediary of RNA, arguing that "the transfer of information from nucleic acid to nucleic acid, or from nucleic acid to protein may be possible, but transfer from protein to protein, or from protein to nucleic acid, is impossible." Under some circumstances RNA might transfer sequence information to DNA, but the order of causation is normally "DNA makes RNA makes protein." Crick called this the " Central Dogma" of molecular ...
The term "22 mer" refers to a piece of single stranded DNA that is 22 nucleotides long...a typical length for a PCR primer. So how many different DNA sequences can you make if each is 22 nucleotides long? Each strand has 22 spots to fill and there are 4 nucleotides (A, G, C, and T). The equation to calculate the number of unique 22 nucleotide-long DNA strands is: ...

Importantly, these so-called DNA-protein crosslinks (DPCs) are also caused by several anti-cancer drugs and are extremely toxic as they interfere with essential processes such as DNA replication.. Cells need to unwind and separate the DNA double helix in order to copy its genetic information prior to the next round of cell division. DPCs inhibit this process by blocking the way of the unwinding enzyme (replicative helicase), thus preventing replication and consequently cell division.. In the laboratory of Stefan Jentsch at the MPIB, scientists now identified the protease Wss1 as a new safeguarding factor that chops down the protein components of DPCs and thereby enables cells to duplicate their genome. Julian Stingele, a PhD student in the laboratory, found that cells lacking Wss1 are particularly sensitive to formaldehyde, extremely vulnerable to DPCs and suffer from genomic instability.. ...

Random DNA shearing generates a log normal distribution of fragments. The smaller the size of the input DNA, an exponentially higher amount of energy is required to fragment it to the desired smaller size range. The relationship between size and energy is demonstrated in the figure below. When starting with an input sample containing large fragments of DNA, less energy is required to shear those large fragments randomly to a desired average fragment size. When starting with a smaller input fragment size, more energy is required to shear randomly and generate a distribution of fragments around a desired average fragment size.. Our recommended protocols for shearing genomic DNA as starting material require a more than tenfold larger input starting material than the desired fragment size. When the difference between the size of DNA starting material and desired fragment size is small, increasing the AFA treatment time but maintaining all other AFA parameters is recommended. For example, on the M220 ...
Fred Sanger developed the first technique for sequencing DNA. DNA is replicated in the presence of chemically altered versions of the A, C, G, and T bases. These bases stop the replication process when they are incorporated into the growing strand of DNA, resulting in varying lengths of short DNA. These short DNA strands are ordered by size, and by reading the end letters from the shortest to the longest piece, the whole sequence of the original DNA is revealed.

In commonly used RNA isolation methods, the absence of genomic DNA is still a challenge. Particularly for downstream quantitative RT-PCR (qRT-PCR, co-amplified genomic DNA can lead to nonspecific results.
Choose from a range of DNA, RNA and protein molecular weight markers. Use the DNA molecular weight markers for both conventional and pulsed field gel electrophoresis applications.
This would be good. I am trying, however, to think of a way to control all other variables of the lives of the test subjects for the length of time required, so that you could test that it was the exercise, and only the exercise, that made the difference. Keeping these test subjects in a controlled environment, with controlled diet, etc., would be costly, especially if a large sample size is required. I am assuming that Falun Gong, like most disciplines, requires a significant amount of time to master sufficiently to make a difference. The control group could still be chosen at random from the general population ...

Do you always find your hard drive storage insufficient for all the gigabytes of digital files you own? Well, this might be a strange solution, but scientists recently developed a storage that can hold 700 terabytes of files in--wait for it--a small speck of an artificial DNA.
Definition of complementary DNA - synthetic DNA in which the sequence of bases is complementary to that of a given example of DNA.
What happens in mRNA is that certain pieces of information in the DNA need to be replicated They are replicated in the cytoplasm. The large strands of DNA cannot get out of the cell though, and so need to be taken by something smaller. What happens is that a single strand of DNA comes and copies the pieces of information that it needs.. To do this, the DNA double helix unravels and allows a strand of messenger RNA to cme between them. It copies the side of the information it needs.. There is a strange thing though, that is that the messenger does not have T. But A can also bond to U, so in messenger,. A ALWAYS BONDS TO U. C ALWAYS BONDS TO G. But this is rather advanced and will probably not be asked in a GCSE exam. So the one strand copies the opposite of one strand.. ...
