Fast even at the nanometer level: major advance in super-resolution fluorescence microscopy

Pushing the MINFLUX technique to higher spatial and temporal precision allows protein dynamics to be observed under physiological conditions. Scientists at the MPIMR observe the stepping motion of the motor protein kinesin-1 as it walks along microtubules at an unprecedented level of detail. The work highlights the power of MINFLUX as a revolutionary new tool for observing nanometer-sized conformational changes in proteins. The work was recently published in Science. more
