The potential of cryo-electron tomography
Scientists at Max Planck Institute of Molecular Physiology in Dortmund use cryo-electron microscopy and cryo-electron tomography (cryo-ET) to study how single molecules modulate heart contractions. They switched part of their research to cryo-ET, to better see how proteins interact within the cellular environment. Watch this video to hear why the speakers feel that cryo-ET is the key technique of the future. Speakers: Professor Dr. Stefan Raunser, Director, Zhexin Wang, PhD, student, and Dr. Sebastian Tacke, Postdoctoral researcher.
