Potential of mean force between oppositely charged nanoparticles: A comprehensive comparison between Poisson–Boltzmann theory and Monte Carlo simulations

Ion-mediated interactions between like-charged polyelectrolytes have been paid much attention, and the Poisson–Boltzmann (PB) theory has been shown to fail in qualitatively predicting multivalent ion-mediated like-charge attraction. However, inadequate attention has been paid to the ion-mediated interactions between oppositely charged polyelectrolytes. In this work, the...

Multivalent ion-mediated nucleic acid helix-helix interactions: RNA versus DNA

Ion-mediated interaction is critical to the structure and stability of nucleic acids. Recent experiments suggest that the multivalent ion-induced aggregation of double-stranded (ds) RNAs and DNAs may strongly depend on the topological nature of helices, while there is still lack of an understanding on the relevant ion-mediated interactions at atomistic level. In this work, we...
