Numerical Calculation

A phosphodiester bond make up the backbone of each helical strand of DNA. The phosphate groups in the phosphodiester bond are negatively-charged. Because GATE is made of DNA, we can not ignore the influence of the Coulomb force. So we calculate the electric potential inside and outside the GATE.

Model

The coodinates are set as follows: Cy.png Lin.jpg

Condition: Temperature 298[K], Na+ 50mM


A point-charge model is used. We assume the phosphate groups have negative charge,and negative charge circles the axis of the double helix once every 10.4 base pairs. we use following fomulas to calculate electric potential.

Debye–Hückel equation:

Summing up all the Electric Potential for every DNA phosphate presented on the DNA origami GATE. (used C language to output the numbers)


Results

Electric potential at the z-axis(x=0, y=0).

MD Simulation

We carried out molecular dynamics simulation to examine the capturing mechanism and the effectiveness of our structure “Cell Gate”.


DNA Model

Format DNA rasen.jpg

For simplicity, course-grained DNA model is used in our simulation. One DNA nucleotide is represented by one bead in the model and each bead can be hybridized with complementary bead.

The potential energy of the system includes 5 distinct contributions.

Format suusiki1.jpg


The first three terms are intramolecular interactions, bonds, bond angles, and dihedral angles. In order to express “tether like structure”, only bond interactions are active in our DNA model.

And the latter two are non-bonded interactions. Coulomb interactions are taken into account using the Debye-Huckel approximation which enables to internalize counterions contribution.

Parameters of these potentials were fit to reference literatures.

The force on bead i is given by a Langevin equation

Format suusiki2.jpg


The first term donates a conservative force derived from the potential U and the second is a viscosity dependent friction.

The third term is a white Gaussian noise and effects of solvent molecules are internalized in this term.

Langevin equation is integrated using a Velocity-Verlet method.


Toehold displacement of dsDNA

Format toea toeb.jpg

In order to test the model, here we carried out a simulation of Toehold displacement between two strands.

Length of strands and simulation situation was as follows.

Target strand/Toehold A/Toehold B : 25nt / 9nt (+10nt spacer) / 13nt (+10nt spacer)

Temperature : 300K Time-step size / simulation length : 0.01ps / 100ns Ion concentration : 50mM Na+

Results

<<動画>>

Movie 1 shows the trajectory of each strands from the simulation. The target strand moves from Toehold A strand to Toehold B strand which are fixed on the field. This result agrees with the energy gradient.


Comparison of capture ability

One of constructional features of our structure ”Cell-Gate” is the use of new strand displacement method.

By comparing our selector strand and a toehold strand, the most popular method for strand displacement, we looked at the effectiveness of our structure in terms of capture ability.

Model and Method

Format selector.jpg

According to the design of experiment section, we designed models of the selector strand and the toehold strand as below.


Hex-cylinder is represented as the assembly of electrically-charged mass points fixed on the field.

Format Hexagon.jpg

Simulation was carried out at the following condition. Temperature : 300K Ion concentration : Na+ 50mM Box size : 20nm×20nm×20nm (periodic boundary condition) Time-step size / simulation length : 0.01ps / 10ns


Results

<<動画+グラフ(一応)後ほど>>

Movie2 and 3 shows the result of each simulation, selector-target and toehold-target.

We note that this simulation was carried out under periodic boundary condition where the size of the box is 20nm×20nm×20nm, the distance between the target strand and the Hex-cylinder is maintained virtually constant.

One of the advantages of the selector strand is shrinking ability. The selector strand hybridizes to the target with making loop which makes it possible to extend the strand length without changing hybridized structure's length.Z

Results obtained from this simulation show that the selector strand can catch the target strand exists outside of the Hex-cylinder and hybridize completely while the toehold strand never hybridize to the target strand in simulation time.

We run 5 simulations for each under the same conditions and results were almost the same as we first obtained.

By considering results of electrostatic potential calculation around the hex-cylinder and MD simulation, it is clear that the electrostatic field prevents the entrance of DNA strands into the Hex-cylinder and the selector strand helps it to get into the cylinder.

Therefore, we concluded that the selector strand, we originally designed, provides a high capture ability to our system “Cell-Gate”.
