New Method Promises Quantitative Insights into Dynamic Membranes

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München have developed a new technology that identifies individual proteins on membranes by tracking their molecular mass alone without labeling them. This allows the analysis of rapid and transient interactions of membrane-associated proteins in their natural physiological settings. The authors have demonstrated the use of the new method by analyzing the MinDE reaction cycle that regulates cell division in E.coli, offering new insights into this complex biological system.
