First 3D observation of nanomachines working inside cells

Researchers headed by IRB Barcelona combine genetic engineering, super-resolution microscopy and biocomputation to allow them to see in 3D the protein machinery inside living cells

Published in the journal Cell, the study unveils key functional features of an assembly of proteins that is vital for animals and plants.

With this new strategy in hand, it will be possible to study cellular protein machinery in health and in disease.
