Abstract

Microtubules are labeled with superparamagnetic CoFe2O 4 nanoparticles using biotin-streptavidin coupling. Small permanent magnets are used to attract and deposit the microtubules on kinesin-modified surfaces in aligned arrays. Nanoparticle labeling affects motility of the motor proteins due to steric hindrance, This construct is optimized using heterofunctionalized microtubules, which have near-native gliding velocities but can be directed using weak applied magnetic fields. copyright the Electrochemical Society.
