Molecular
Machines

The laborers of the cell. Wonderfully complex. Discovering medicines will require a systematic approach.

Major advancements in genetics and functional genomics have uncovered molecular machines as drivers of disease.

In cancer, a tumor’s genetic make-up can lead to dependence on the activity of one molecular machine for growth and survival. In rare genetic disorders, point mutations in the machines themselves can lead to disrupted or altered function.

Molecular machines present compelling therapeutic opportunities to transform the lives of patients.

Force, work and motion.

Molecular machines are enzymes that create force, work, and motion.

There are over 400 proteins in the molecular machine family and they govern diverse processes within cells. DNA replication and repair, biomolecular transport and protein homeostasis to name a few.

Their enzymatic output depends on the machines cycling through a series of ordered and large-scale conformational changes.
