RNA oligomers of length 40-60 nt can self-assemble into covalent versions of the Azoarcus group I intron ribozyme. This process requires a series of recombination reactions in which the internal guide sequence of a nascent catalytic complex makes specific interactions with a complement triplet, CAU, in the oligomers. However, if the CAU were mutated,(More)
Bacterial chemoreceptors organize into large clusters at the cell poles. Despite a wealth of structural and biochemical information on the system's components, it is not clear how chemoreceptor clusters are reliably targeted to the cell pole. Here, we quantify the curvature-dependent localization of chemoreceptors in live cells by artificially deforming(More)
Spatial organization of the genome plays a central role in gene expression, DNA replication, and repair. But current epigenomic approaches largely map DNA regulatory elements outside of the native context of the nucleus. Here we report assay of transposase-accessible chromatin with visualization (ATAC-see), a transposase-mediated imaging technology that(More)
Cellular processes take place over many timescales, prompting the development of precision measurement technologies that cover milliseconds to hours. Here we describe ArrayG, a bipartite fluorogenic system composed of a GFP-nanobody array and monomeric wtGFP binders. The free binders are initially dim but brighten 15 fold upon binding the array, suppressing(More)
