Abstract

An intermittent molecular encounter leading to a site-specific DNA-break was unveiled under a limited protein's sliding-free condition. It reflects a transient molecular action by which the reaction rate and efficiency of restriction enzyme in bacterial cells is enhanced. This was experimentally verified for the first time in the world by using our microfluidic device.
