Ultrahigh Resolution Imaging and Mechanical Mapping of Bacteriorhodopsin
This video describes the Nano Letters paper on the high speed atomic force miscroscopy (AFM) imaging and mechanical mapping of purple-membrane (bacteriorhodopsin) with Bruker’s Dimension FastScan and ultra low amplitude Peak Force Tapping.
In the paper, Rico et. al. study the mechanical properties, at nanometer resolution, of bacteriorhodopsin. The AFM images show which proteins contribute to function and which contribute to structure.
