Confined DNA project collaborators have published further works in the field of nano/bio science, in journals Nano Letters (IF 13.6) and The Journal of Physical Chemistry C (IF 4.8).
- S. Marion from Institute of physics published in Nano Lett. (IF=13.6 in 2014.) with our EPFL collaborators prof. A. Rađenović and R. Bulushev. The work “Relevance of the drag force during controlled translocation of a DNA-protein complex through a glass nanocapillary“ presents results of controlled translocation of individual DNA bound proteins with an optical tweezer trough 20-100 nm sized capillaries. The authors identified the contribution from electroosmotic flow in measured effective charge densities of DNA-protein complexes. This work represents the first step towards localizing binding sites of different proteins on DNA by nanopore methods. S. Marion contributed to the article trough interpretation and theoretical modeling of experimental results.
- I. Delač Marion from Institute of physics collaborated with A. Selmani from Chemistry Department (UniZg) on a work An Experimental and Theoretical Approach to Understanding the Surface Properties of One-Dimensional TiO2 Nanomaterials published in The Journal of Physical Chemistry C (IF=4.8). This work focused on the comparative investigation of the acid–base surface properties (the isoelectric point, pHiep and point of zero charge, pHpzc) of one-dimensional TiO2 nanomaterials – nanotubes (NTs) and nanowires (NWs). Our colleague contributed by AFM characterization of the investigated nanomaterials. Paper(PDF)>>>
