DNA-mediated electron transfer


Journal Article

Electron transfer in DNA has been investigated for decades, but recent experiments highlight our limited fundamental understanding of these processes. Modern electron transfer theory may help to address some of the open mechanistic issues. We summarize and analyze the results of recent experiments from a theoretical perspective. Future research directions are suggested that might help to establish the molecular mechanism(s) for long- range DNA electron transfer.
