A new paper on the translocation of polypeptides through bacterial plasma membrane has been published in eLife. In the paper we look at the dynamics of the bacterial Sec translocon at multiple time scales using single molecule fluorescence. Open access preprint available at:https://elifesciences.org/articles/35112
AFM setup, Mass-spec setup, and PCR have been delivered and are being installed now. We hope that we get some nice data soon!
Good news! Few essential pieces of equipment were delivered and are up and running. Come, see and taste for yourself!
