Abstract

Enzymes are deformable molecules: the molecular structure can exist in essentially a continuum of different conformations. These are accessible by applying mechanical stress to the molecule. Mechanics then provides a general molecular mechanism to modulate enzymatic reactions, by applying mechanical stresses which deform the enzyme. There are approximately… (More)
