C-Trap® experiments shed light on the mechanisms that govern Structural Maintenance of Chromosome (SMC) Complexes  

In two recent scientific publications, Johannes Stigler and his team from the Gene Center of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich, Germany, set out to mechanistically describe the action of the Structural Maintenance of Chromosome (SMC) Complexes using LUMICKS’ C-Trap® technology. By performing dynamic single-molecule experiments coupled with real-time visualization, they were able…

Transcription factors and chromatin co-condensate and generate forces that alter genomic structure and function

Researchers led by Yael David and Shixin Liu have published a Nature Communications study describing for the first time the mechanisms underlying the co-condensation between transcription factors and DNA. By performing dynamic single-molecule experiments using LUMICKS’ C-Trap® technology, they were able to prove the physiological importance of phase-separated sub-compartments (co-condensates)…
