In Science this week, a team led by researchers from the University of Manchester report on the creation of an artificial small-molecule machine capable of creating peptides, moving one step close to the development of a man-made ribosome. The machine, which is based on a rotaxane, travels alone a molecular strand, picking up amino acids placed in its way and synthesizing a peptide in a sequence-specific manner.
