Characterization of Interactions between Heparin/Glycosaminoglycan and Adeno-Associated Virus with NANOSENSORS™ Super Sharp Silicon AFM probes

Check out the excellent work by Javier Aguilera and his coauthors. The authors used NANOSENSORS Super Sharp Silicon AFM tips to demonstrate awesome morphological features of AAV-2 and complexes with different heparin oligosaccharides and investigated the effect of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) on the aggregation of serum amyloid A (SAA).
