Tumble-proof cargo transporter in biological cells

Ever wondered how molecular nanomotors work when transporting material such as organelles in the cell? Typically, nanomotors move along biopolymer filaments to go about their duties in the cell. Researchers now show that synthetic motors can attach to polymeric filaments and move along without changing either their shape or the direction in which they set out to move.
