New insights in shield mechanisms of chemical chaperone

A new study by Michael Landreh, David Lane, and Sonia Laín, (all at KI/SciLifeLab) and co-workers, shows that the chaperone TMAO acts like a shield against harmful proteins, pushing them away from the protein surface. These study was published in Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters.

Reversibly photoswitchable fluorescent protein for nanoscale imaging of cells

Ilaria Testa (KTH/SciLifeLab) and colleagues have developed new rsFPs based on FusionRed. The rsFusionReds are bright and exhibit rapid photoswitching, thereby enabling nanoscale imaging of living cells. The work was presented in Nature Methods.
