Step Towards Understanding Calcium Pump Functionality

Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) combines laser light and ultra-sensitive cameras that send signals into an individual molecule. This signal spreads to the other colour molecule on the pump, which begins to transmit light of another colour. The group focuses on the relationship between the different colours, which is registered in a specially built light microscope. These measurements provide information about the pump’s movements.
