Mechanical properties of entwined knotted/unknotted DNA loops — •Saeed Najafi and Raffaello Potestio — MPIP, Mainz, Germany

Self-entanglement and knotting can play a crucial role in the mechanical and functional properties of bio-polymers such as DNA and RNA strands and fibers. By means of computer simulations of model DNA systems, we demonstrate that the crossing pattern of a braid of entwined DNA rings has a large impact on its structural and dynamical properties. In particular, we identify under which conditions the braid crossing pattern enforces a positive and stronger correlation between the entangled rings.
