Specialized Microscope Helps Watch How Unfolded Protein Diffuses

Specialized Microscope Helps Watch How Unfolded Protein Diffuses

When a large protein unfolds in transit through a cell, it slows down and can get stuck in traffic. Using a specialized microscope -- a sort of cellular traffic camera -- University of Illinois chemists now can watch the way the unfolded protein diffuses. [More]
