Polynucleotide transport through lipid membrane in the presence of starburst cyclodextrin-based poly(ethylene glycol)s

Abstract : Symmetrical cyclodextrin-based 14-arm star polymers with poly(ethylene glycol) PEG branches were synthesized and characterized. Interactions of the star polymers with lipid bilayers were studied by the “black lipid membrane” technique in order to demonstrate the formation of monomolecular artificial channels. The conditions for the insertion are mainly based on dimensions and amphiphilic properties of the star polymers, in particular the molar mass of the water-soluble polymer branches. Translocation of single-strand DNA (ssDNA) through those synthetic nanopores was investigated, and the close dimension between the cross-section of ssDNA and the cyclodextrin cavity led to an energy barrier that slowed down the translocation process.
