AFS Protein Unfolding Application Note Now Online

Single-molecule force spectroscopy (SMFS) technologies have become prominent as powerful tools for the investigation of the biomechanics associated with protein structure and for the study of protein unfolding pathways. However, current SMFS tools lack the ability to study multiple protein (un)folding events simultaneously, making the investigation of protein folding an…
