Measuring forces on polypeptide chains with a simple trick

Bionanoscience Seminar, 12.03.2015 Speaker: Gunnar von Heijne (Stockholm University) Author: Edgar Schönfeld In some situations, the force on a polypeptide chain can be measured with a technique that does not make use of magnetic tweezers and similar stuff. This is for example the case when a polyptide migrates through the inner cell membrane in E. … Continue reading Measuring forces on polypeptide chains with a simple trick
