Enzymatic polymerization of high molecular weight DNA amphiphiles that self-assemble into star-like micelles.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

High molecular weight ssDNA amphiphiles are synthesized by enzymatic polymerization. These highly asymmetric diblock DNA copolymers self-assemble into "hairy", star-like micelles, shown in the AFM image and the DPD snapshot.
