Electron cryotomography (ECT) is an emerging technology that allows thin samples such as small bacterial cells to be imaged in 3D in a nearly native state to 'molecular' (approximately 4nm) resolution. As such, ECT is beginning to deliver long-awaited insight into the positions and structures of cytoskeletal filaments, cell wall elements, motility machines, chemoreceptor arrays, internal compartments, and other ultrastructures. Here we briefly explain ECT, review its recent contributions to… CONTINUE READING
