Thinking in compartments is back! The degradation of a fluorescently labeled nucleic acid substrate within a polymer capsule by coencapsulated DNase I was initiated by activation of the enzyme with a chemical trigger. The degraded DNA diffused from the capsule (see picture). The semipermeable capsule microreactors enable external reaction control, high-throughput tracking of reaction progression, and continuous modification of the DNA cargo.
