Development of High-speed Imaging Apparatus for Studying Nanometer Scale Dynamic Behavior of Protein

Research Project Outline

We develop an apparatus that makes it possible to capture high-resolution images of protein molecules in real time, without disturbing their physiological function. Using this cuttingage microscope we observe several types of proteins at work, and demonstrate its great value for biological sciences. From the kinetic structural data obtained we inspect several models that would account for the mechanism by which the proteins produce their functions, and eventually find correct answers.
