Hot Article: Nanoscale machines via inversion of helix handedness?

Chakrabarti and Wales draw inspiration from DNA to perform theoretical studies on a model supramolecular helix system. They demonstrate the inversion of helix handedness results from cooperative rotation of the two segments of opposite handedness in opposite directions. A mechanical motion rarely observed in molecular machines.
