In science:

The Matsuno group (2001) has reported the coherent alignment of induced magnetic dipoles in ATP-activated actomyosin complexes that was maintained over the entire filament even in the presence of thermal agitations causing rapid decoherence.

Furthermore, in what is seen as a temperature lowering mechanism enabling molecular motors to act as heat engines, Matsuno and Paton (2000) describe the gradual release of energy stored in ATP by actomyosin ATPase, in a sequence of quanta Em over time intervals of ∆tm .
