Abstract

We have fabricated a uni-directional circulator of microtubules. Since it is already technologically possible to attach foreign materials to microtubules using specific chemical or biochemical reactions, this novel technology to control the direction of microtubule movement should be applicable to drive micrometer-scaled rotating motors, or to applicable to transport materials between micrometer scaled areas.
