New technique uses light to control lifetime of protein
November 06, 2019

Researchers at the University of Illinois have developed a technique that uses light to control the lifetime of a protein inside the cell.

The method will allow the researchers to better observe how specific proteins contribute to health, development and disease.

The technique, called GLIMPSe allows the researchers to study what happens when a protein is present or absent in the cell, or when it is present at lower and higher levels.
