Prima – A new multiple color pulsed diode laser

When investigating a broad range of samples, researchers often need access to several excitation wavelengths. Buying multiple pulsed diode lasers or even a tunable laser can be quite expensive. PicoQuant’s solution for this challenge? The new compact, stand alone laser module Prima, which offers three individual emission wavelengths and can be operated either in picosecond pulsed or continuous wave mode. Join our Product Manager Guillaume Delpont for a sneak peak at this powerful yet affordable laser module.

Probing the Dynamics and Interaction Mechanisms of Intrinsically Disordered Proteins with Single-Molecule Spectroscopy

Ben Schuler from the University of Zürich (Switzerland), who showcased how the combination of single-molecule FRET with nanosecond correlation spectroscopy, microfluidic mixing, and other methods can be used to probe the dynamics and interaction mechanisms of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) over a wide range of timescales and in heterogeneous environments, including live cells.

What is the webinar about?

The functions of proteins have traditionally been linked to their well-defined three-dimensional, folded structures. It is now clear, however, that many proteins perform essential functions without being folded. Quantifying the highly dynamic and conformationally diverse ensembles of such unfolded or ‘intrinsically disordered’ proteins (IDPs) is an important aspect of understanding their functional mechanisms. Single-molecule spectroscopy is ideally suited for investigating these systems. I will illustrate how the combination of single-molecule Förster Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) with nanosecond correlation spectroscopy, microfluidic mixing, and other methods can be used to probe the intra- and intermolecular distance distributions, reconfiguration dynamics, and interactions over a wide range of timescales, and in heterogeneous environments, including live cells.

Functional studies of dysfunctional proteins

Our series of free webinars featuring renowned scientists continues: Prof. Elizabeth Rhoades from the University of Pennsylvania (USA) shares some insights into her work on studying intrinsically disordered proteins..

Tau and alpha-synuclein are intrinsically disordered proteins, abundantly expressed in the brain. Both are associated with the pathology of devastating neurodegenerative diseases through their abnormal aggregation into beta-sheet rich fibers. Despite intensive study, many open questions remain about both the exact roles of these proteins in disease development, as well as about their native functions. We use fluorescence lifetime microscopy, single molecule fluorescence and fluorescence correlation spectroscopy to characterize the interactions of tau and alpha-synuclein with cellular binding partners to provide insight into their functional mechanisms which, in turn, may be used to identify novel therapeutic approaches to treat disease

Uncovering the conformational dynamics of intrinsically disordered proteins on the single molecule level

In this first invited webinar, Prof. Andrea Soranno from the Washington University of St. Louis (Missouri, USA) shared some insights into his work on studying conformational dynamics of IDPs

Intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) lack a stable 3D structure; yet they play a key role in many biological functions.  Disorder in proteins occurs in many different forms that  range from fully disordered proteins and molten globules to linkers and tails flanking folded domains. Quantifying structural heterogeneity and dynamics in disordered proteins is one of the key steps to unveil how the protein sequence encodes for IDP conformations and interactions and, ultimately, function. Join our invited speaker, Dr. Andrea Soranno, to learn how his group uses smFRET and nsFCS to uncover the dynamics and functioning of IDPs, such as the Polypyrimidine Tract Binding Protein, on the single molecule level.

Webinar will be available soon.
