Multicolor detection of DNA overstretchingUncategorised

Multicolor Detection Application Note Now Online

Single-molecule force spectroscopy (SMFS) tools are widely used to study structural transitions of DNA during overstretching. However, as many of these tools only provide global information, the exact mechanisms that occur during these transitions remain unclear. Combining SMFS with visualization of local information could resolve this problem. Our Multicolor Detection application…

DNA Repair Visualization Application Note Now Online

DNA repair, the collection of highly-regulated mechanisms by which a cell identifies and repairs DNA damage, remains one of the most essential processes of human life. Without DNA repair mechanisms cells lose the ability to transcribe important regions of their genome, resulting in harmful mutations, which could eventually jeopardize cellular…
