Rapid Chiral Assembly of Rigid DNA Building Blocks for Molecular Nanofabrication R. P. Goodman, 1 I. A. T. Schaap, 2 C. F. Tardin, 2 C. M. Erben, 1 R. M. Berry, 1 C. F. Schmidt, 2 A. J. Turberfield 1 * Practical components for three-dimensional molecular nanofabrication must be simple to produce, stereopure, rigid, and adaptable. We report a family of DNA tetrahedra, less than 10 nanometers on a side, that can self-assemble in seconds with near-quantitative yield of one diastereomer. They can be connected by programmable DNA linkers. Their triangulated architecture confers structural stability; by compressing a DNA tetrahedron with an atomic force microscope, we have measured the axial compressibility of DNA and observed the buckling of the double helix under high loads.
