Researchers have created a new type of molecular motor made of DNA and demonstrated its potential by using it to transport a nanoparticle along the length of a carbon nanotube. The design was inspired by natural biological motors that have evolved to perform specific tasks critical to the function of cells, said Jong Hyun Choi, a Purdue University assistant professor of mechanical engineering. Whereas biological motors are made of protein, researchers are trying to create synthetic...

Researchers have created tiny protein tubes named after the Roman god Janus which may offer a new way to accurately channel drugs into the body’s cells. Using a process which they liken to molecular Lego, scientists from the University of Warwick and the University of Sydney have created what they have named ‘Janus nanotubes’ – very small tubes with two distinct faces. The study is published in the journal Nature Communications. They are named after the Roman god Janus who is...

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online In a paper published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, scientists describe a newly developed sensor that is able to monitor nitric oxide in living animals and could potentially become a valuable asset to diabetic patients in the future. Nitric oxide is considered to be one of the most important signaling molecules in living cells, but in many cancerous cells levels are perturbed. Scientists have needed a new tool to help measure...

Nitric oxide (NO) is one of the most important signaling molecules in living cells, carrying messages within the brain and coordinating immune system functions. In many cancerous cells, levels are perturbed, but very little is known about how NO behaves in both healthy and cancerous cells. "Nitric oxide has contradictory roles in cancer progression, and we need new tools in order to better understand it," says Michael Strano, the Carbon P. Dubbs Professor of Chemical Engineering at MIT....
