Magnetic tweezers unravel cellular mechanics

Abstract:
By injecting tiny magnetic beads into a living cell and manipulating them with a magnetic ‘tweezer', scientists of the University of Twente, The Netherlands, succeed in getting to know more about the mechanics of the cell nucleus.

The way DNA is ‘translated' into the specific functions of the cell strongly depends on the mechanics, so this information is of great value. Scientists Anthony de Vries, Hans Kanger and Vinod Subramaniam of the Biophysical Engineering Group present their results in Nano Letters.
