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…

Protein folding Application Note Now Online

The biological function of many macromolecules such as proteins and RNA are tightly coupled to their conformation and their conformational dynamic. The correct folding of a protein into its native state is essential for its biological function. Misfolded or unfolded proteins are known to be either (partially) inactive or to…
