Researchers stumble onto way to make protein-based processors

Posted on Thursday, March 01 2012 @ 21:17:25 CET by

The Inquirer reports scientists have discovered a method for creating super-fast microprocessors using proteins:
Developed by researchers at Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) the technique was discovered by accident. A chance observation made by Susheel Gunasekar, a doctoral student in NYU's Department of Chemical and Biological Sciences two years ago sparked the research project.

During an experiment that involved studying certain cylinder-shaped proteins derived from cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP), found predominantly in human cartilage, Gunasekar noticed that in high concentrations, these alpha helical coiled proteins spontaneously came together and self-assembled into nanofibers.
