DNA origami as a potential anti-cancer drug

In this article published in ACS NANO, a DNA origami structure is shown capable of clustering DR5. When this cluster inducing origami is added to cancer cells, it is shown to cause apoptosis and cell death. As much as 80% of some cell types went into apoptosis with one version of this DNA origami structure.

Linear actuators made from DNA

In this article we show two different approaches to produce linear actuators made from DNA

In all levels of engineering, complex machinery is based on the concerted activity of many different subunits of heterogeneous nature. One of such subunits are the linear actuators we refer to in the title. Basically, a linear actuator is a device or construct capable of producing a motion confined in one axis; this type of devices, as they are currently found in mechanisms and machines, can be as large as the ones found in the hydraulic arm of an excavator or as precise as the piezoelectric actuators capable of movements in the nanometer range.
