Rapid microfluidic double-jump mixing device for single-molecule spectroscopy


Dingfelder, Fabian; Wunderlich, Bengt; Benke, Stephan; Zosel, Franziska; Zijlstra, Niels; Nettels, Daniel; Schuler, Benjamin (2017). Rapid microfluidic double-jump mixing device for single-molecule spectroscopy. Journal of the American Chemical Society, 139(17):6062-6065.

Abstract

We introduce a microfluidic double-jump mixing device for investigating rapid biomolecular kinetics with confocal single-molecule spectroscopy. This device enables nonequilibrium dynamics to be probed, e.g., transiently populated intermediates that are inaccessible with existing single-molecule approaches. We demonstrate the potential and reliability of the method on time scales from milliseconds to minutes by investigating the coupled folding and binding reaction of two intrinsically disordered proteins and the conformational changes occurring in a large cytolytic pore-forming toxin.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
