Adhesion and motion with multivalent ligand-receptors We rationalized the microscopic details of the interactions between DNA-coated surfaces . Building on this knowledge it is possible to quantify equilibrium motion of a particle with multivalent ligands attaching to sticky receptors on a surface , and we predicted that this motion could be affected by inertia . This opens up ways to control and improve assembly.
