Researchers investigate the effects of biomolecular droplet structure on fusion times using the C-Trap®

In a recent publication, researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago used the C-Trap® to study the relationship between structural properties of biomolecular condensates and their fusion times. They found that fusion times, an indicator of condensate density, varies … Continue Reading

Vesicle-like RNA–protein condensates characterized by the C-Trap®

We were happy to find yet another publication from the lab of Dr. Priya Banerjee with results from C-Trap® analyses! This time his lab examined the formation and features of vesicle-like RNA–protein structures, which differ from the more known uniform … Continue Reading

We are excited to tell you that our application note Manipulate and Study Protein Droplet Dynamics and Properties in Real Time to Understand Phase Separation is now available to download. Here, you can learn how to unravel the properties, formation, … Continue Reading

Study establishes molecular forces responsible for condensation of ribonucleoprotein-RNA complexes

Researchers investigated the molecular driving forces underlying the condensation and decondensation of ribonucleoproteins using the C-Trap™. Specifically, they showed that sequence-dependent features of the RNA and ribonucleoprotein molecules partially dictate phase transitions. These findings can help scientists further understand the … Continue Reading
