Topic DNA Compaction and decompaction: bulk and interfaces
Date March 31, 2005
Time 11.30 am
Venue Seminar Room
Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science

About the Topic: Polyvalent cationic cosolutes induce DNA complexation, compaction and protection. Our physico-chemical research on various mixed systems of DNA and cationic amphiphiles and polyions  in bulk and at interfaces will be outlined.

Interaction of DNA with simple cationic surfactants will be reviewed, followed by DNA interaction with cationic-anionic mixtures. These also include interaction with thermodynamically stable catanionic vesicles, built on classical and aminoacid-based surfactants. Through phase map determinations and cryo-transmission electron microscopy, an overview from phase behaviour to microstructure will be presented for several cases.

We will also address DNA compaction and decompaction phenomena in different mixed systems, and their dependence on the amphiphile hydrophobicity and mixture.

Modelling of DNA compaction by polycations, by means of Monte Carlo simulations, was also  considered. Results clearly indicate the crucial role of electrostatic interactions in the compaction process.

DNA adsorbs on a hydrophobic surface. The adsorbed amount is low and the conformation extended. On addition of a cationic surfactant, the adsorbed amount increases strongly at the same time as DNA compacts. As the surfactant is removed, DNA decompaction occurs. On a hydrophilic anionic surface DNA does not adsorb but adsorption can be induced by a cationic surfactant.

Various aspects of the interfacial behaviour of mixed DNA-surfactant systems are presented. These include the study of adsorption on hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces by ellipsometry, and the forces between DNA-covered surfaces by surface force apparatus and atomic force microscope. Different surfactant types are studied including the combination of cationic and anionic surfactant. Both thermodynamic and kinetic aspects are included.

About the Speaker :

Professor Geradus 't Hooft along with Professor Martinus J.G. Veltman, received the Nobel Prize in
Physics in 1999 for setting up a functioning theoretical machinery to perform calculations with non-Abelian gauge theories.

The two researchers are awarded the Nobel Prize for having placed particle physics theory on a firmer mathematical foundation. They have in particular shown how the theory may be used for precise calculations of physical quantities. Experiments at accelerator laboratories in Europe and the USA have recently confirmed many of the calculated results.

Unifying the four basic forces -- gravitational, electromagnetic, weak and strong -- has been the holy grail of theoretical physics. The electromagnetic force keeps electrons in orbit and helps the atoms to survive, while the weak force keeps the sun burning by converting protons into neutrons which are then "baked" into helium nuclei. The combined elcetroweak interaction developed in the sixties was difficult to accept because no meaningful calculations could be done with it. The work of 't Hooft and Veltman in the early seventies changed the scenario and truly unified these two forces.

The 'holographic principle' developed by 't Hooft in the mid eighties has become the primary tool in tackling the final unification process -- that of gravity and quantum mechanics. These, along with numerous other pioneering works, make Professor 't Hooft one of the greatest theoretical physicists of all time.
