Controlled ligand gradient through C-Trap® facilitates DSM measurements

A publication in the journal Micromachines describes how researchers managed to control the concentrations of DNA-binding dyes in single-molecule optical tweezers experiments on DNA. They established a controlled concentration gradient with the multi-channel laminar microfluidics system integrated with their C-Trap® correlated optical tweezers and confocal microscopy. The study demonstrates a…

Study shows how chaperone enzyme ClpB processively translocates polypeptide loops using C-Trap® correlated optical tweezers and confocal microscopy

A new study published in Nature reports how researchers verified the intricate process of disaggregating entangled proteins by analyzing chaperone enzyme ClpB at a single-molecule level. The C-Trap® correlated optical tweezers and confocal microscopy enabled them to analyze how the member of the Hsp100 chaperone family translocates looped polypeptide substrates…
