Mighty Biomolecular Motors

Abstract:
In a development with ramifications for gene therapy and infection-fighting drugs, a research collaboration led by Carlos Bustamante of Berkeley Lab's Physical Biosciences Division has discovered the mechanism by which at least some viruses inject their DNA into the cells of other organisms. The mechanism involves one of the most powerful biomolecular motors ever observed.
