Study shows how chaperone enzyme ClpB processively translocates polypeptide loops using C-Trap® correlated optical tweezers and confocal microscopy

A new study published in Nature reports how researchers verified the intricate process of disaggregating entangled proteins by analyzing chaperone enzyme ClpB at a single-molecule level. The C-Trap® correlated optical tweezers and confocal microscopy enabled them to analyze how the member of the Hsp100 chaperone family translocates looped polypeptide substrates…

Dynamic Single-Molecule Workshops in North and South of China

Last week we organized two dynamic single-molecule workshops in the North and South of China – one at Tsinghua University in Beijing, and another at  Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU). Both workshops included in-depth lectures exploring different state-of-the-art single-molecule applications and hands-on demonstrations of the C-Trap™ Optical Tweezers – Fluorescence & Label-free Microscopy technologies. With…

Single-molecule study assesses how cohesin complexes bridge DNA molecules using C-Trap® correlated optical tweezers with fluorescence microscopy

In a new study published in the journal Science Advances, Gutierrez-Escribano et al. studied the role of cohesin complexes in DNA tethering to gain a better understanding of sister chromatid cohesion. Using the C-Trap correlated optical tweezers with fluorescence microscopy, they observed in real-time intermolecular (DNA–DNA) and intramolecular cohesin-derived DNA bridge…

C-Trap® installed at University of Vermont

We are happy to announce the recent installation of the C-Trap™ at the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine. Several labs will use the correlated optical tweezers – fluorescence microscopy instrument to investigate the dynamics of molecular machines that interact with their tracks to generate force and motion. These processes are…
