Generation-4 polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers were surface-functionalized with azides or alkynes and conjugated to one DNA strand. DNA-controlled self-assembly of alternating azide and alkyne dendrimers on a DNA template enabled the coupling of the dendrimers by the azide-alkyne "click" reaction to form covalently coupled dimers, trimers, and tetramers. Polymerization of the DNA-dendrimer conjugates was also demonstrated, as well as assembly in a circular structure on DNA origami and imaging by atomic force microscopy.
