Fluorescence biomembrane force probe

Fluorescence biomembrane force probe

Micrographs from an experiment using the fluorescence biomembrane force probe to interrogate a single molecule on a live platelet. The epifluorescence images (pseudo-colored to reflect the calcium level) of the platelet are superimposed onto the bright-field images. The upper panel shows a platelet with low calcium inside. The lower panel shows calcium firing in the platelet. (Credit: Lining (Arnold) Ju)
