Dynamically NAND Gate System on DNA Origami Template
Molecular logic gates play an important role in many fields and DNA-based logic gates are the basis of DNA computers. A dynamically NAND gate system on the DNA origami template is established in this paper. Naturally, the system is stable in solution without any reaction. Different logical values are mapped into different DNA input strands. When logical values are entered into the system, the corresponding DNA input strands undergo a directed hybridization chain reaction (HCR) at corresponding positions on the DNA origami template. The operation results are identified by disassembly between the nanogold particles (AuNPs) and DNA origami template. The nanogold particles remain on the DNA origami template, indicating that the result is true; The nanogold particles are dynamically separated from the DNA origami template, indicating that the result is false. The simulation of the system through Visual DSD shows that the reaction strictly followed the designed direction, and no error products are generated during the reaction. These simulation results show that the system has the advantages of feasibility, stability and intelligence.
