Preprint outlining the utility of peptide ligands against RyR2 as potential super-resolution imaging probes

Our latest pre-print is now online, where we evaluated two peptide ligands of the cardiac ryanodine receptor (RyR) as super-resolution imaging probes. The research was conducted in collaboration with one of our industrial partners, Badrilla Ltd., during the industrial internship of iCASE PhD student Tom Sheard funded through the DiMeN DTP. The peptides used were the scorpion … Continue reading Preprint outlining the utility of peptide ligands against RyR2 as potential super-resolution imaging probes

New book chapter detailing EExM in Methods in Cell Biology

Our new book chapter has been published, detailing the enhanced expansion microscopy technique (EExM). The protocol offers a route to visualising cellular ultrastructures at a resolution of 15 nm in-plane (and ~ 35 nm axially) with a hydrogel-based molecular-scale imprint of the fluorescence pattern. We detail how we used EExM to explore structural and biochemical … Continue reading New book chapter detailing EExM in Methods in Cell Biology
