Biomolecular Processes Observed with New Imaging Tool

© Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Seeing the first images of Earth, a shiny blue and white ball suspended against inky blackness, changed the way we think about the world. Slowing down droplets as they hit a liquid surface, sending out ripples and kicking up globules, or seeing bullets shooting towards us in slow-motion from a movie screen, belong to our vocabulary of visual experiences. A new tool developed by Berkeley Labs now helps scientists glimpse images that seem equally amazing: watching individual proteins, and other biomolecules, at work inside cells. Because our bodies rely on chemicals for communication between cells, the new technique opens windows that will help lead to cures for immune system conditions, cancer, and other diseases. Seeing how biomolecules function in normal systems and comparing the functionality in cells contaminated with suspected di...
