High-speed atomic force microscopy takes on intrinsically disordered proteins

KANAZAWA, Japan, Dec. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Kanazawa University’s pioneering high-speed atomic force microscope technology has now shed light on the structure and dynamics of some of life’s most ubiquitous and inscrutable molecules – intrinsically disordered proteins. The study is reported in Nature Nanotechnology.

Our understanding of biological proteins does not always correlate with how common or important they are. Half of all proteins, molecules that play an integral role in cell processes, are intrinsically disordered, which means many of the standard techniques for probing biomolecules don’t work on them. Now researchers at Kanazawa University in Japan have shown that their home-grown high-speed atomic force microscopy technology can provide information not just on the structures of these proteins but also their dynamics.

Understanding how a protein is put together provides valuable clues to its functions. The development of protein crystallography in the 1930s and 1950s brought several protein

IoT and High-speed Digital Electronics Powering the Global Oscilloscopes Market

Oscilloscope is a class of electronic test equipment that primarily captures an external analog signal and converts the electrical voltage signal into a digitized waveform represented as a function of time.

New York, Nov. 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of the report “IoT and High-speed Digital Electronics Powering the Global Oscilloscopes Market” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p05983634/?utm_source=GNW
The waveform is then analyzed for various characteristics, such as amplitude, frequency, rise-time, and noise, among others.

Due to several measurement advantages such as higher bandwidth processing capability, storage, and flexibility in waveform processing, digital oscilloscopes have almost replaced the analog oscilloscopes.This study provides an in-depth view of the market dynamics influencing and challenging market growth.

It also analyzes the market segments through frequency bandwidth, channel count, applications, verticals, form-factor, and region.Despite the fact that they have been used for decades, oscilloscopes continue to play an integral part in the development of

  • Superconductors are materials that effortlessly conduct electricity.
  • Until now, they’ve only worked at temperatures of minus 100 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • But researchers recently found a superconductor that works at ambient temperatures when under immense pressure. They’re now trying to make it work without that pressure.
  • Widespread superconductors could give rise to high-speed floating trains, super-powered computers, and very cheap electricity.

Superconductors – materials that transport electricity with no energy lost – have until now only worked at extremely cold temperatures, from about -100 degrees Fahrenheit to the near-absolute zero of space. But this month, that changed.
