There’s a problem that biologists have long pondered — how do proteins find other proteins within the cell that they are supposed to interact with?
Super-resolution microscopy is letting us peer even closer into the cell’s secrets, revealing awesome wonders.
Take a tour of molecular machines working in the cell and see what new things scientists have found out about them.
The unique powers of cells — their “demonic catalytic powers” — and their fitness to play their unique role as the building blocks of all life are a wonder.
Cells have perfected action at a distance: not by magic, but by control of distant sites through carefully arranged functional intermediates.
