(Chemical Equation Presented) Molecules that define logic: A molecular "OR" logic gate trigger has been demon-strated by masking a functional group in a doxorubicin prodrug with a linker that contains two cleavable substrates (input). The prodrug molecule was activated by two different enzymes to release the parent drug (see scheme; input red; output (drug) blue).
