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…

Controlled ligand gradient through C-Trap® facilitates DSM measurements

A publication in the journal Micromachines describes how researchers managed to control the concentrations of DNA-binding dyes in single-molecule optical tweezers experiments on DNA. They established a controlled concentration gradient with the multi-channel laminar microfluidics system integrated with their C-Trap® correlated optical tweezers and confocal microscopy. The study demonstrates a…
