An artist’s impression of Yokobayashi’s nanomachine. A trigger molecule of RNA causes the nanomachine to change its shape and provide a fluorescent light signal. The trigger molecule is able to act on many nanomachines, allowing amplification of the light signal. Once fully developed, the technology could be used to identify disease states in patients.
