Hot Article: Influence of nano-viscosity and depletion interactions on cleavage of DNA by enzymes in glycerol and poly(ethylene glycol) solutions: qualitative analysis

The influence of the crowded cellular environment on cleavage of DNA by a restriction enzymes has been investigated by a team of Polish scientists. The team from the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS, Warsaw, modeled the crowded cellular environment using glycerol and poly(ethylene glycol) solutions and investigated the role on viscosity on DNA cleavage.
