49_50b/2010Inside Cover: “Illusionary” Polymerase Activity Triggered by Metal Ions: Use for Molecular Logic-Gate Operations (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 50/2010)

“Illusionary” polymerase activity was proved to be intentionally triggered by Hg2+ and Ag+ ions through their interaction with the mismatched base pairs T–T and C–C to result in a nonnatural amplification reaction. In their Communication on page 9757 ff., H. G. Park and co-workers describe how rational design of the primers and selection of the type of DNA polymerase was used to construct molecular-scale logic gates.
