Non-equilibrium dynamics of active enzymes

Abstract:

Observations of behaviour usually associated with micron-scale living systems and self-propelled particles in enzymatic systems have been attributed to their catalytic activity. In light of the conformational changes that accompany the catalytic cycle, the exciting possibility that an enzyme molecule can generate enough mechanical work to overcome the noisy conditions inside a cell is being investigated, due to its implications on biological self-organisation and intracellular transport. T...
