Fluorescence Microscopy Enables Real-Time Monitoring of Redox State in Mitochondria of Live Cells

Fluorescence Microscopy Enables Real-Time Monitoring of Redox State in Mitochondria of Live Cells

In the April issue of Experimental Biology and Medicine a multidisciplinary research team led by Drs. Rex Gaskins and Paul Kenis in the Institute of Genomic Biology (IGB) on the campus of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign describe their recent work on subcellular redox homeostasis. [More]
Electron Microscopy Helps Detect Filament Assembly of Parasite Actin II Proteins

Electron Microscopy Helps Detect Filament Assembly of Parasite Actin II Proteins

The tropical disease malaria is caused by the Plasmodium parasite. For its survival and propagation, Plasmodium requires a protein called actin. Scientists of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) in Germany used high-resolution structural biology methods to investigate the different versions of this protein in the parasite in high detail.

Adaptive Optics Microscopy Sharpens High-Resolution Images

Adaptive Optics Microscopy Sharpens High-Resolution Images

The complexity of biology can befuddle even the most sophisticated light microscopes. Biological samples bend light in unpredictable ways, returning difficult-to-interpret information to the microscope and distorting the resulting image. New imaging technology developed at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's Janelia Farm Research Campus rapidly corrects for these distortions and sharpens high-resolution images over large volumes of tissue.

Synthetic Hydrogel May Help Natural Healing of Surgical Wounds by Promoting Blood Clotting

Synthetic Hydrogel May Help Natural Healing of Surgical Wounds by Promoting Blood Clotting

Synthetic collagen invented at Rice University may help wounds heal by directing the natural clotting of blood. [More]
Histoscope Surgical Microscope Helps Directly Observe Cell and Microvasculature Structures

Histoscope Surgical Microscope Helps Directly Observe Cell and Microvasculature Structures

The latest generation in surgical microscopes enables a surgeon to directly observe cell and microvasculature structures. This device developed by the EPFL spin-off Samantree makes it possible, for example, to ensure that all cancer cells have been removed during the extraction of a tumor. [More]
