    Abstract

    We have previously reported a simple and general method to construct mesoscopic DNA assemblies "Nucleo-cages" by the self-assembly of suitably designed three oligodeoxyribonucleotides (ODNs). In this study, we report stabilization of Nucleo-cages by photo-crosslinking with psoralen derivatives and complexation of Nucleo-cages with cationic ferrocene derivatives. Interestingly, when the Nucleo-cage-ferrocene complexes were oxidized with cerium(IV), fluorescent microparticles were converted to smaller hollow microstructures.
