submitted on 10.10.2018 and posted on 10.10.2018 by Teresa Naranjo, Kateryna Lemishko, Sara de Lorenzo, Alvaro Somoza, Felix Ritort, Emilio Pérez, Borja Ibarra
Here, we exploit the high force (0.1 pN), spatial (1 nm) and temporal (1 kHz) resolutions of optical tweezers to quantify and control mechanically the real-time kinetics of individual synthetic molecular shuttles operating at near-physiological conditions, for several hundreds of switching cycles, near equilibrium conditions.
