Molecular Motors

directed motion at the molecular level

Cells build molecule-sized motors that are powered by a variety of different fuels. Some of these motors deliver resources throughout the cell, while others power even larger motions such as muscle contraction. Atomic structures have shown how these motors capture energy and convert it into movement.
