    Abstract

    F1-ATPase is an enzyme acting as a rotary nano-motor. During catalysis subunits of this enzyme complex rotate relative to other parts of the enzyme. Here we demonstrate that the combination of two input stimuli causes stop of motor rotation. Application of either individual stimulus did not significantly influence motor motion. These findings may contribute to the development of logic gates using single biological motor molecules. © 2009 Ristic et al; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.
