We are happy to announce the recent installation of the C-Trap® at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine. Several labs will use the correlated optical tweezers – fluorescence microscopy instrument to investigate the dynamics of molecular machines that interact with their tracks to generate force and motion. These processes are critical to intracellular activities, such as cargo transport, muscle contraction, chromosome movement, and DNA repair.

One of the main users, Dr. Warshaw, and his lab, are interested in the individual and collective properties of myosin motors and the cytoskeletal proteins that regulate them. With the C-Trap, the researchers can now study the properties of a single myosin-binding protein C as it dynamically interacts with the myosin motors and actin tracks to generate molecular forces. The instrument enables them to characterize the structural and regulatory properties of the myosin-binding protein in real time. 

We wish the new C-Trap users in the labs of Drs. Warshaw, Trybus, Stumpff, Lee, Berger, Previs, and Howe best of luck with their ongoing research, and we are eager to see their future results!

Do you want to discuss the applications and benefits of our C-Trap® for your research? Meet our application scientists at one of the conferences we are attending, or contact us for brochures, a demo, or a quote.
