Stopping the nanomachine

Abstract:
A nanoscale motor that runs continuously while provided with fuel, but which can be switched on and off by a molecular 'brake', has been reported by researchers at Purdue University in Indiana. Chengde Mao and co-workers have built on previous work on DNA-based molecular motors by constructing a device that operates using a similar mechanism to biological motor proteins.
