ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ymeth.2014.02.029||Abstract:||DNA nanotechnology is a powerful tool to fabricate nanoscale motors, but the DNA nanomotors to date are largely limited to the simplistic burn-the-bridge design principle that prevents re-use of a fabricated motor-track system and is unseen in biological nanomotors. Here we propose and experimentally demonstrate a scheme to implement a conceptually new design principle by which a symmetric bipedal nanomotor autonomously gains a direction not by damaging the traversed track but by fine-tuning the motor's size. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.||Source Title:||Methods||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/95600||ISSN:||10959130||DOI:||10.1016/j.ymeth.2014.02.029|
