The purification of the structures was tried both with an agarose gel and with an Amicon size exclusion filter (molecular weight cutoff: 100kDa). According to general experience, the yield of purification via agarose gel is approximately 2 nM. The yield of the filter purification was definitively higher, since unexpected weak dilutions led to appropriate concentrations for TEM and fluorescence microscope. Therefore we estimate the yield to be roughly 10 nM.

When we inspected the structure in the TEM, we saw a spread of the arms in the uprightly orientated structures (figure 1). The magnitude of this spread seemed to be correlated to the amount of DNA binding molecules in solution.
