The review is focused on a new, unique and promising method of creating a precision local temperature gradient in the micro- and nanovolumes, allowing to heat a single cell and to explore exogenous and endogenous intracellular processes. Retrospective analysis and systematization of advanced developments in the study of intracellular temperature have been carried out. A device is described in detail consisting of an optical nanoheater, which uses metallic nanoparticles or water warming up with… CONTINUE READING
