Nanoscale "Computer" Activates Protein and Influences Cell Behavior

Researchers have created a computational operation and embedded it into a protein. In doing so, they are now able to rapidly activate the protein using light and the drug rapamycin. When activated, the cells underwent internal changes that enhanced their adhesive capabilities, which ultimately decreased their motility.
