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.

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.
