DNA nanotechnology opens future to biomedical applications with 3-D artificial enzyme

Thu, 2014-06-05

Using molecules of DNA like an architectural scaffold, Arizona State University scientists, in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Michigan, have developed a 3-D artificial enzyme cascade that mimics an important biochemical pathway that could prove important for future biomedical and energy applications.

The findings were published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology.  Led by ASU Professor Hao Yan, the research team included ASU Biodesign Institute researchers Jinglin Fu, Yuhe Yang, Minghui Liu, Professor Yan Liu and Professor Neal Woodbury, along with colleagues Professor Nils Walter and posdoctoral fellow Alexander Johnson-Buck at the University of Michigan.  Read more here
