Abstract

In this paper, the single DNA molecules were linearized and stretched by using the nanochannel with a dimension of about 300 × 300 nm2 under applying electric fields. After that, the single DNA molecules methylation level was detected by estimating the contraction processes of both non-methylated and methylated single DNA molecules in nanochannel after switching off the electric fields. And furthermore, we also found that their translocation velocities were changed between non-methylated and methylated single DNA molecules in nanochannel.
