Music for atomic force microscopes” performed by Roderick Lim and Philipp Oertle.
The “stickiness" of “dirty molecular velcro” is sufficient to bind selective objects but is weak enough to permit their two-dimensional diffusion.
Model of Nuclear Pore Complex transport selectivity
Video imaging by high-speed atomic force microscopy captures the molecular motions of a nuclear pore complex at work.
