Gold lights up biological cells

Abstract:
Brahim Lounis and colleagues at the University of Bordeaux in France have developed a new way of visualizing proteins in cells by labelling them with gold nanoparticles. The all-optical method is highly sensitive and allows 3-D imaging of molecules while overcoming many of the disadvantages of traditional techniques. It could help researchers image proteins efficiently and non-destructively, and might also be extended to other biological systems such as DNA.
