Building a Total Internal Reflection Microscope (TIRF) with Active Stabilization (Feedback SMLM)
Authors:  Simao Coelho, Jongho Baek, J. Justin Gooding and Katharina Gaus, date: 07/05/2021, view: 1512, Q&A: 0

The data quality of high-resolution imaging can be markedly improved with active stabilization, which is based on feedback loops within the microscope that maintain the sample in the same location throughout the experiment. The purpose is to provide

Retention Using Selective Hooks (RUSH) Cargo Sorting Assay for Protein Vesicle Tracking in HeLa Cells
Authors:  Natalia Pacheco-Fernandez, Mehrshad Pakdel and Julia von Blume, date: 03/05/2021, view: 1836, Q&A: 0

Monitoring vesicle trafficking is an excellent tool for the evaluation of protein dynamics in living cells. Such study is key for the understanding of protein sorting and secretion. Recent developments in microscopy, as well as new methodologies
