The places proteins go in the human cell could come into clearer focus thanks to the work of researchers who have tracked 12,003 proteins among 30 subcellular locations where the biomolecules go about their business. A team led by Mathias Uhlén and Emma Lundberg of KTH Royal Institute of Technology examined 22 human cell lines using antibody-based fluorescence microscopy and found that many of the proteins locate in multiple places around the cell (examples in . . .
