DNA is one of the most important components for all living organisms and many species, including humans, use DNA to store and transmit genetic information to new generations. Recent advances in the handling of DNA have made it possible to use DNA as a building block of nano-sized materials with...
Nanomedicine, the application of nanotechnology to medicine, encompasses a broad spectrum of fields including molecular detection, diagnostics, drug delivery, gene regulation and protein production. In recent decades, DNA has received considerable attention for its functionality and versatility,...
RNA engineering for nanotechnology and medical applications is an exciting emerging research field. RNA has intrinsically defined features on the nanometre scale and is a particularly interesting candidate for such applications due to its amazing diversity, flexibility and versatility in...
Recent progress in an emerging area of designing aptamer and nanomaterial conjugates as molecular diagnostic and drug delivery agents in biomedical applications is summarized. Aptamers specific for a wide range of targets are first introduced and compared to antibodies. Methods of integrating...
Self-assembling DNA nanostructures based on rationally designed DNA branch junction molecules has recently led to the construction of patterned supramolecular structures with increased complexities. An intrinsic value of DNA tiles and patterns lies in their utility as molecular pegboard for...
The identification of disease-related genes and their complete nucleotide sequence through the human genome project provides us with a remarkable opportunity to combat a large number of diseases with designed genes as medicine. However, gene therapy relies on the efficient and nontoxic transport...
