Using Sound To Control Enzymatic Reactions

[ad_1] Figure 1. Audible sound-induced generation of transient domains and spatiotemporally controlled cascade reaction networks. Credit: Institute for Basic Science Unhackneyed compartmentalization generated by audible sound allows the enzyme reactions to be controlled spatiotemporally. Spatiotemporal regulation of multistep enzyme reactions through compartmentalization is essential in studies that mimic natural systems such as cells and organelles. […]
