CONCEPT NAME

Molecular machines and motors

DESCRIPTION

Molecular motors, also called molecular machines, are either natural or synthetic molecules that convert chemical energy into mechanical forces and motion. An example of a biological motor is the protein kinesin, which uses the hydrolysis of adenosine triphosphate to move along microtubule filaments.

12 skos:historyNote [skos:definition - 2014.01.21] Molecular motors are biological molecular machines that are the essential agents of movement in living organisms. A molecular machine, or nanomachine,is any discrete number of molecular components that produce quasi-mechanical movements (output) in response to specific stimuli (input).The expression is often more generally applied to molecules that simply mimic functions that occur at the macroscopic level.
