A broad overview of the interaction of DNA with surfactants and polymersDue to the potential benefits of biotechnology, interest in the interaction between DNA and surfactants and polymers has become increasingly significant. Now, DNA Interactions with Polymers and Surfactants provides an extensive, up-to-date overview of the subject, giving readers a basis for understanding the factors leading to complexation between DNA and different cosolutes, including metal ions, polyelectrolytes, spermine, spermidine, surfactants and lipids, and proteins.Topical coverage includes:Polyelectrolytes, physico-chemical aspects and biological significanceSolution behavior of nucleic acidsSingle DNA molecules: compaction and decompactionInteraction of DNA with surfactants and cationic polymersInteractions of histones with DNADNA-DNA interactionsThe hydration of DNA-amphiphile complexesDNA-surfactant/lipid complexes at liquid interfacesDNA and DNA-surfactant complexes at solid surfacesThe role of correlation forces for DNA-cosolute interactionsSimulations of polyionsCross-linked DNA gels and gel particlesDNA as an amphiphilic polymerLipid-DNA interactionsCovering both theoretical and practical aspects of the subject, DNA Interactions with Polymers and Surfactants is an ideal resource for chemists and biochemists working in gene and DNA delivery research in industry and academia, as well as for cell biologists, chemical engineers, molecular biologists, and development biologists in the pharmaceutical industry.
