Axel Schlossbauer, Simon Warncke, Philipp M. E. Gramlich, Johann Kecht, Antonio Manetto, Thomas Carell and Thomas Bein A Programmable DNA-Based Molecular Valve for Colloidal Mesoporous Silica Angewandte Chemie International Edition 49
Letting off steam: A temperature-controlled valve system permits the targeted release of guest fluorescein molecules from the pores of colloidal mesoporous silica particles. The pore-opening temperature is dependent on the length of double-stranded DNA linkers. Avidin proteins that are joined to the DNA by a biotin modification act as the molecular valve at the exits to the pores.
