Rotaxane mimics ribosome to spin out peptides

Is the assembly of the peptide mechanical or chemical? © David Leigh

The field of molecular machines has taken a new bio-inspired turn to assemble another molecule, in this case linking up individual amino acids into a peptide. While this molecular peptide synthesiser isn’t going to rival a ribosome for speed any time soon, it does suggest a way to make multicomponent polymers. More...
