A bipedal motor mechanism that coordinates the chemical and mechanical cycles of two-identical feet can be generalized to obtain energy from hydrolysis of a DNA or RNA fuel was demonstrated. The motors that can operate continuously on a reusable track require a separate fuel, linear motion and can be coupled to ATP hydrolysis by using a motor architecture. The interaction between fuel and motor can be followed by labeling a fuel at the 5 inches end with FAM and at the 3 inches with TAMRA, the...Expand abstract
