THE ADVANCED NANOMETER RESEARCH

The Phayronet project deals with the development of “smart drugs”. Unlike most present day drugs, which are absorbed with the blood flow and travel around the body, the “smart drugs” act in a selective fashion: they affect only certain cells (e.g. the cancer cells), or get activated just under certain circumstances. A very bright example is ribosome–avron which functions in a protein-producing cell. A DNA molecule located in a cell nucleus contains the data on the albumen composition. A ribonucleic acid (RNA) acts as a courier of sorts, which arrives from a cell nucleus, and which is quite similar to a movie recorded computer wise, i.e. ribosome proceeds along the RNA transfer molecular string and pinpoints down the precise location of Amino acids, thus, matching the sequence, which in its turn is a DNA sequence transcript by itself. The amino acids string which is composed as a result of the above process is nothing else, but a brand new protein. That is the essence of the ribosome which acts as an accurate component on the nanometric scale. In other words, this is kind of machine, the Phayronet nanotechnology research experts are so willing to come up with.

In fact, our body consumes a great many of such mobile “nano-devices”, alongside the ones created by nature and not by the human mind. Among those, one can bring forth neutrophils, lymphocytes, as well as numerous other white blood cells. As far as the nanoscale is concerned, quite big entities are implied, whose approximate width constitutes 10,000 nanometers, yet they function as natural nanorobots that roam all over the body on a regular basis, fixing the damaged tissues, attacking and swallowing the invaders and foreign particles on their way. Our life is totally dependent upon these vital cells.
