Observing Malaria Infection at the Right Spot in the Human Host

After entering the human host, the Plasmodium parasite is present in different forms during its life cycle as malaria develops (Figure 1). In the so-called blood phase [3], the merozoite form invades erythrocytes (red blood cells), evolves through different stages, and generates about 30 daughter merozoites that emerge from the infected host cell ready to attack …

Precise and lightning-fast spectral Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging at video rate integrated in a high-end confocal microscope

Förster (Fluorescence) Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) has become a powerful tool to study protein-protein interactions and signal transduction in living cells. FRET is commonly read out either by detecting the ratio of the donor and acceptor intensities (sensitized emission) or by detecting the excited state lifetime of the donor, which decreases with increasing FRET (Fluorescence …
