Summary of "The calculation of topological structures of strands-based DNA trigonal bipyramids."

With the rapid development of DNA nanotechnology, strands-based DNA polyhedra have been reported and widely applied in chemical biology, drug delivery and materials science. A fundamental problem is to determine which topological structures such a DNA polyhedron will allow. Our goal in this paper is to determine all permissible nontrivial topological structures for DNA trigonal bipyramids with double-helical edges, which have been partially realized by one-step self-assembly of multiple DNA single-strands designed rationally. Here oriented trigonal bipyramid links (OTB links) are constructed as the mathematical models for DNA trigonal bipyramids and are further classified into 451 link types. In this process, an OTBL program is designed in the Python programming language to generate all OTB link diagrams and also to remove the same topological structures produced by the rotational symmetry of trigonal bipyramid. Our result gives a list of candidates for further synthesized DNA trigonal bipyramid prisms with required topological structures.

DNA TOPOISOMERASES that catalyze ATP-independent breakage of one of the two strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strand through the break, and rejoining of the broken strand. DNA Topoisomerases, Type I enzymes reduce the topological stress in the DNA structure by relaxing the superhelical turns and knotted rings in the DNA helix.

DNA TOPOISOMERASES that catalyze ATP-dependent breakage of both strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strands through the breaks, and rejoining of the broken strands. These enzymes bring about relaxation of the supercoiled DNA and resolution of a knotted circular DNA duplex.

Archaeal enzymes of the DNA TOPOISOMERASES, TYPE I class that catalyze ATP-independent breakage of one of the two strands of DNA, passage of the unbroken strand through the break, and rejoining of the broken strand. These archaeal enzymes reduce the topological stress in the DNA structure by relaxing negatively, but not positively, supercoiled DNA.
