J. Mertens’ work cited in Lab-talk of Nanotechnology journal

This works shows that ATP-hydrolysis induces mechanical motion of a two-dimensional monolayer of gp19 ATPases as measured by coupled movement of an elastic microcantilever plate. Strikingly, the in-plane forces generated by the co-operation of bio-molecular motors produces stepped deflection transitions of the cantilever. The work has been developed in collaboration with María I Daudén and Prof. Jose L Carrascosa from the Department of Structure of Macromolecules at the National Biotechnology Center (CNB) in Madrid.
