Title (EN) MOLECULAR COMPUTING ELEMENTS: GATES AND FLIP-FLOPS
(FR) ELEMENTS DE CALCUL MOLECULAIRES: PORTES ET BASCULES BISTABLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)This invention relates to novel molecular constructs that act as various logic elements, i.e., gates and flip-flops. The constructs are useful in a wide variety of contexts including, but not limited to, computation and control systems. The basic functional unit of the construct comprises a nucleic acid having at least two protein binding sites that cannot be simultaneously occupied by their cognate binding protein. This basic unit can be assembled in number of formats providing molecular constructs that act like traditional digital logic elements (flip-flops, gates, inverters, etc.).
(FR)La présente invention concerne de nouveaux produits de recombinaison moléculaires agissant comme différents éléments logiques, c'est-à-dire des portes et des bascules bistables. Les produits de recombinaison sont utiles dans plusieurs contextes différents, y compris, de manière non exhaustive, des systèmes de calcul et de commande. L'unité fonctionnelle de base du produit de recombinaison comprend un acide nucléique possédant au moins deux sites de liaison de protéines ne pouvant être simultanément occupés par deux protéines de liaison correspondantes. Cette unité de base peut être montée dans plusieurs formats, permettant ainsi d'obtenir des produits de recombinaison moléculaires agissant comme des éléments logiques numériques classiques (bascules bistables, portes, inverseurs, etc.).
