Single molecule force spectroscopy with NANOSENSORS™ uniqprobe CONT

High resolution imaging of the cytoplasmic side of bacteriorhodospin (BR) (left) and overlay of 6 force-distance curves (right) showing the controlled C-terminal unfolding of a single BR membrane protein from its native environment.

BR image & spectroscopy

The measurements were recorded in buffer solution with a FlexAFM V3 (Nanosurf) using a NANOSENSORS™ uniqprobe qp-CONT cantilever by Dr. Patrick Frederix from Nanosurf AG.
