New study highlights interconvertible RecA–ssDNA states with the help of u-Flux™ microfluidics

A recent publication in FEBS Letters describes how the presence of ADP and ATP affects the structural transitions that single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) undergoes upon RecA-filament assembly. The researchers used the u-Flux™ Laminar Flow Microfluidics combined with optical tweezers to demonstrate that the bacterial homologous recombination-enzyme exists in two interconvertible states.…

Researchers investigate the effects of biomolecular droplet structure on fusion times using the C-Trap®

In a recent publication, researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago used the C-Trap® to study the relationship between structural properties of biomolecular condensates and their fusion times. They found that fusion times, an indicator of condensate density, varies depending on their structural organization. The findings highlight how physical…

Electrostatic effects on vimentin stiffness demonstrated with the C-Trap®

A recently published study from the lab of Prof. Sarah Köster at the University of Göttingen investigated how electrostatic conditions influence the mechanical properties of intermediate filament vimentin, such as structural stability. The researchers assessed these features by stretching the protein in different buffer conditions, using the C-Trap® with correlated optical…
