The neurotrophin receptor TrkA (also known as NTRK1) is known to be crucially involved in several physio-pathological processes. However, a clear description of the early steps of ligand-induced TrkA responses at the cell plasma membrane is missing. We have exploited single particle tracking and TIRF microscopy to study TrkA membrane lateral mobility and(More)
There is a wide interest in studying the membrane mobility of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) tropomyosin receptor kinase A (TrkA) at the single molecule level, in order to elucidate its diverse signaling responses related to different receptor functions. Here we present an experimental strategy based on the acyl carrier protein (ACP) tag in order to study the(More)
The intensity of water absorption in the region of the solar spectrum plays a dominant role in atmospheric energy balance and hence strongly influences climate. Significant controversy exists over how to model this absorption accurately. We report dipole moment measurements of highly vibrationally excited water, which provide stringent tests of intensities(More)
