New C-Trap® installation at the University of Groningen opens avenues for investigating the conformational cycle of chaperone proteins

We are thrilled to announce the installation of a C-Trap® at the University of Groningen, Netherlands, in the lab of Dr. Katarzyna (Kasia) Tych. The installed C-Trap combines optical tweezers with 3-color fluorescence microscopy, which the team will use to investigate protein stabilities, molecular chaperoning, and conformational regulation. They plan…

Early activation of single macrophages captured by the C-Trap®

In a recent article published in Small Methods, researchers reveal a method that uniquely captures the early phase of oxidative stress response in macrophages. Employing the powerful combination of optical tweezers, confocal fluorescent microscopy, and microfluidics of the C-Trap®, they measured the real-time intracellular response of individual macrophages to a…

The softening effect of vimentin filament phosphorylation measured with the C-Trap®

A recent study published in the journal Nanoscale shows how post-translational phosphorylation and proteins binding phosphorylated sites regulate the stiffness of vimentin filaments. The researchers combined several analytical approaches and instruments, including the C-Trap® optical tweezers, to define the role of these modifications and interactions on the mechanical properties of vimentin. Apart from contributing…
