Using high-speed atomic force microscopy (AFM), an international team of researchers has captured on film the motions and interactions of membrane proteins (Nat. Nanotechnol., DOI: 10.1038/nnano.2012.109). Scientists have used fluorescence microscopy to examine the dynamics of membrane proteins before, says team leader Simon Scheuring of the French National Institute of Health & Medical Research. But those experiments required that . . .
