We have demonstrated a novel micro/nano transportation system using the adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-driven biomolecular motors. Two kinds of linear biomolecular motor systems, microtubulekinesin [1] and actinmyosin [2], are investigated as driving mechanisms in the system. The rail molecules, microtubules, and actin are patterned on a glass substrate using… CONTINUE READING
