The study of structural dynamics of complex macromolecular crystals using electrons requires bunches of sufficient coherence and charge. We present diffraction patterns from graphite, obtained with bunches from an ultracold electron source, based on femtosecond near-threshold photoionization of a laser-cooled atomic gas. By varying the photoionization(More)
Zn(2+) plays essential and diverse roles in numerous cellular processes. To get a better understanding of intracellular Zn(2+) homeostasis and the putative signaling role of Zn(2+), various fluorescent sensors have been developed that allow monitoring of Zn(2+) concentrations in single living cells in real time. Thus far, two families of genetically encoded(More)
DNA-based molecular circuits allow autonomous signal processing, but their actuation has relied mostly on RNA/DNA-based inputs, limiting their application in synthetic biology, biomedicine and molecular diagnostics. Here we introduce a generic method to translate the presence of an antibody into a unique DNA strand, enabling the use of antibodies as(More)
