Angewandte Chemie 4/2012: It's in the Genes

Author: Angewandte Chemie International Edition

Single-molecule analysis with DNA origami is the topic of a Review by H. Sugiyama et al.: How can various functionalities be positioned for single-molecule analsis? V. Gevorgyan and B. Chattopadhyay contribute a Minireview on transition-metal-catalyzed denitrogenative transanullations. The Highlight by O. Zerbe deals with the structures of seven-transmembrane helical proteins. J. Reedijk discusses citations, metrics, and ethics in an Editorial.

In the Communications section, S. O. Kim et al. show how to create DNA origami nanopatterns on chemically modified graphene. DNA can also be used to design light-harvesting antennae, as demonstrated by R. Häner et al., and S. Che et al. report on the synthesis of impeller-like helical DNA–silica complexes (see picture). M. F. Greany et al. succeeded in the transition-metal-free direct arylation of anilines.
