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)…

C-Trap® experiments suggest tubulin lattice state dictates tau envelope formation

Tau is an intrinsically disordered microtubule-associated protein (MAP) that helps stabilize microtubules by forming an envelope around them. This stabilizing protein has been implicated in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, where abnormal chemical changes promote detachment of tau from microtubules and the formation of long threads that eventually lead to…

The Scientist Magazine features z-Movi®;

We couldn't have put the essence of our z-Movi®; in better words than the author of this article in The Scientist: "Just as music pulls some folks to the dance floor while others remain stuck to their chairs, sound can now be used to pull some cells loose from their substrate while other cells…

z-Movi® featured in Science

Our latest product, the z-Movi®;, has been featured in the latest issue of the journal Science! The z-Movi uses acoustic force manipulation to query the interaction strengths of cells with their cognate binding partners. It is based on a lab-on-a-chip assay that allows the assessment of thousands of cell-cell and cell-ligand interactions…
