Summary of "Immunofluorescent Staining and High-Resolution Microscopy to Study the Pneumococcal Cell."

Immunofluorescent staining using antibodies to detect specific proteins allows for visualization of proteins of interest in a biological sample. In recent years, there have been important advances in the microscopy equipment used for imaging, and we can now perform so-called high-resolution microscopy. Through high-resolution microscopy we can not only study biological processes but also visualize them.
