Atomic Force Microscopy Reveals One Molecule At A Time

According to a new study, researchers have found a new way to see and measure protein assembly in real time and with unprecedented detail. This is revealed by using a new mode of atomic force microscopy, Proteins and molecules assemble and disassemble naturally as part of many essential biological processes. It is very difficult to observe these mechanisms, which are often complex and take place at the nanometer scale, far smaller than the normal visible range. The study was published in Nature Nanotechnology.

Clinicians Perspectives On Providing Emergency-Only Haemodialysis To Undocumented Immigrants
