Sun, D., Stadler, A. L., Gurevich, M., Palma, E., Stach, E., van der Lelie, D., & Gang, O. (2012). Heterogeneous nanoclusters assembled by PNA-templated double-stranded DNA. Nanoscale, 4(21), 6722-6725. DOI: 10.1039/C2NR31908J
Heterogeneous nanoclusters with trimeric and core–shell architectures containing nanoparticles of different size and composition have been fabricated via site-specific PNA-“invasion” of DNA double helix. This novel strategy facilitates the incorporation of double-stranded DNA into the nanoparticle assembly design.
