The softening effect of vimentin filament phosphorylation measured with the C-Trap®

A recent study published in the journal Nanoscale shows how post-translational phosphorylation and proteins binding phosphorylated sites regulate the stiffness of vimentin filaments. The researchers combined several analytical approaches and instruments, including the C-Trap® optical tweezers, to define the role of these modifications and interactions on the mechanical properties of vimentin. Apart from contributing…

Evaluation of protein droplet viscoelasticity with the C-Trap® reveals new material properties

A recent publication in Science describes a new glass-like structural behavior that protein droplets can adopt, regulating their biochemical behavior as they age. Specifically, through rheological measurements using the C-Trap® optical tweezers, the researchers discovered material properties that may help cells respond to a dynamic molecular environment. The findings offer essential insights into the…
