By Vincent Danos, Heinz Koeppl, John Wilson-Kanamori (auth.), Luca Cardelli, William Shih (eds.)

This e-book constitutes the refereed court cases of the seventeenth foreign convention on DNA Computing and Molecular Programming, DNA17, held in Pasadena, CA, united states, in September 2011.
The 12 revised complete papers awarded including five invited talks have been rigorously chosen from various submissions. study in DNA computing and molecular programming attracts jointly arithmetic, machine technology, physics, chemistry, biology, and nanotechnology to handle the research, layout, and synthesis of information-based molecular platforms. This annual assembly is the most efficient discussion board the place scientists with various backgrounds come including the typical objective of advancing the engineering and technological know-how of biology and chemistry from the viewpoint of desktop technology, physics, and mathematics.

Sample text

Tube t, similar to the earlier examples, contains strands for which there is not currently a carry required; tube t+2 contains different strands where previous processing indicates a carry is required. Another way of looking this is to say: if a particular strand were input via tube t+2, the resulting sum would be one more than if the same strand had been input via tube t. Likewise, this algorithm uses both tubes t and t+2 as outputs: the output in tube t is correct as is (for as many bits as have been processed); the output in tube t+2 needs to have a carry added to its next most significant place.

Thus, the switch functions as an AND gate requiring two inputs simultaneously to undergo a computation: wavelength of light corresponding to the excitation of the donor fluorophore, and environmental protons, which toggle the I-switch. Presence of both inputs is sufficient to generate an output from the device in the form of wavelength of emission of the acceptor fluorophore. Absence of either fails to elicit a photonic output. Given the dearth of demonstration of functionality of rationally designed artificial DNA nanomachines outside of the in vitro context, the I-switch presents good potential to establish the relevance of synthetic DNA nanodevices in living systems.

We therefore chose this system to validate the functionality of the I-switch and map spatiotemporal pH changes along the ALBR-mediated endocytic pathway. Drosophila hemocytes were incubated with a mixture of 80 nM I-switch labelled with Bodipy TMR (IBTMR) and fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-conjugated dextran (FITCdextran) (1 mg ml-1), a marker of the endosomal fluid phase. Importantly, the I-switch was found to be localized in distinct punctate structures ~1 µm in size. When these images were overlayed with co-internalized FITC–dextran images, these puncta were found to co-localize, indicating that the I-switch was indeed marking endosomes.
