Single-molecule fluorescence methods and biomechanical tools provide exciting new opportunities to probe biochemical processes in unprecedented detail. The detection and spectroscopy of single fluorophores have recently been used to observe conformational changes and biochemical events involving nucleic acids. A number of fluorescence observables, including localization, quenching, polarization response and fluorescence resonance energy transfer, have been utilized. An exciting new opportunity… CONTINUE READING
