Motion-based DNA detection using catalytic nanomotors.


Synthetic nanomotors, which convert chemical energy into autonomous motion, hold considerable promise for diverse applications. In this paper, we show the use of synthetic nanomotors for detecting DNA and bacterial ribosomal RNA in a fast, simple and sensitive manner. The new motion-driven DNA-sensing concept relies on measuring changes in the speed of… (More)
