A Y-scaffold (red line) and linear linker (yellow line) were designed to form a DNA hydrogel by hybridization of the reactive ends. An adenosine triphosphate (ATP) aptamer sequence (green line) was inserted into the linker region. On addition of ATP (blue star), the conformational transition of the aptamer had a great influence on the mechanical properties of the DNA hydrogel. The mechanical properties can be further tuned by adding a fully complementary strand (black line) of the aptamer. View Paper here.
