The non-equilibrium state ofa living cell is maintained by molecular tasks that biological molecules perform. Many of these essential tasks are performed by enzymes. The ability and efficiency of an enzyme to do a specific biological task (which can be thought of as a chemical reaction in progress) is coupled to its mechanics. These mechanical properties can be studied using a nano-rheology technique, in which a mechanical force is applied to the molecule under study and the response of the molecule is studied.
