We developed a new approach using cryo-correlative light and scanning transmission electron microscopy allowing analysis of targeted in situ intracellular ions and water measurements at the ultrastructural level within domains identified by examination of specific GFP-tagged proteins . We illustrate the potential of this approach by investigating changes in water and ion content in nuclear domains identified by GFP-tagged proteins in cells stressed by Actinomycin D treatment and controls.

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the BioEnergy Science Center (BESC) combined different microscopic imaging methods to gain a greater understanding of the relationships between biomass cell wall structure and enzyme digestibility, a breakthrough that could lead to optimizing sugar yields and lowering the costs of making biofuels. Results were published in Science.

We describe herein the development of a fast-scanning atomic force microscopy (AFM) combined with inverted fluorescent microscopy (FM), aiming at the elucidation of dynamic structure-function relationships of biological macromolecules on live cell membrane. Applicability of the system is demonstrated by the correlated AFM-FM imaging of chicken red blood cell (RBC) surfaces.

After the successful FOM2011 conference held in Konstanz this year, Focus on Microscopy 2012 (FOM2012) will be held in Singapore. It will take place in the week before Easter from Sunday April 1 to Wednesday April 4, 2012 at the Suntec Singapore International Convention & Exhibition Centre in the heart of the city. It is sponsored by the National University of Singapore (NUS), the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), the Centre of Bioimaging Sciences (CBIS), and the Mechanobiology Institute (MBI).

Diplozoid monogenean Eudiplozoon nipponicum, with complex life cycle comprising oncomiracidium, diporpa, juvenile and adult stage, represents an ideal model for studies on morphological adaptations of metazoan parasites to the ectoparasitic life style. Combined morphological approach offers the advantage of more complex characterization and visualization of structures noticeable only when using specific microscopic method.
