(Kanazawa University) Using high-speed atomic force microscope, for the first time, a team of researchers from Kanazawa University has captured "living" nano-nuclear pores of colon cancer cells. In their article just published in ACS Nano, the researchers also reveal the first nano dying code - loss of nuclear pore inner channel protein elasticity.
