Can we understand the cell membrane structure using chemistry tricks?
Could directed pharmacological treatments of the skeleton alter cell membrane function?
This week’s Image of the Week is a representative Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) image of an F-actin structure, taken from a recent Topical Review in JPhysD: “Convergence of lateral dynamic measurements in the plasma membrane of live cells from single… Read More ›
A new JPhysD special issue explores the boundaries that play a key role in cell adhesion, signaling, and recognition.
Novel physics-based experimental techniques and concepts from statistical mechanics may help understand why living cells use up precious energy to constantly ‘jiggle’ and ‘twitch’ their membranes.
