Down the Nano-rabbit Hole (IMAGE) Arizona State University Caption Lindsay explored the interactions between a protein, called an integrin (alphaVbeta3), and its target, called a ligand (RGDfC). Lindsay's team was able to manufacture a nanodevice to more finely control a series of experiments with a carefully sized gap to control the protein, an electrode holding the ligand in position, and control the amount of voltage that can be applied to it.
