Nanobodies for superresolution microscopy
Date: 05/24/2023 – 05/24/2023 | Past Webinar
Indirect immunofluorescence staining is one of the standard approaches for labeling biomolecules of interest, although these antibodies form huge complexes that cause some linkage error between the fluorophore and the biomolecule of interest. Therefore, it is essential to bring the fluorophore as close as possible to the molecule. Get first-hand information and learn more about how our new nanobody conjugated abberior STAR dyes significantly improve superresolution microscopy and provides thrilling images. Katie Wolfe of Jackson ImmunoResearch and Kristina Kramer of abberior provide insight into the function of nanobodies and their advantages for IF labeling.

Live-cell imaging – nanometer-sized fluorescent probes & tags
Date: 09/15/2021 | Past Webinar
Breaking the diffraction limit by the development of superresolution microscopy techniques like STED or MINFLUX, now the size of the labeling tag plays an important role concerning the achievable resolution. In the fourth webinar of our Online Symposia 2021 two excellent guest speakers are giving a deeper inside of the design and use of nanometer-sized molecular probes for labeling living specimens. Dr. Ivana Nikić-Spiegel, group leader at the University of Tübingen, will present her work on genetically encoded proteins having an unnatural amino acid equipped with a biorthogonal side chain. In combination with an azide or tetrazine attached to an organic fluorophore, this creates a fantastic labeling strategy connecting a small-sized fluorophore directly to the protein of interest. The second speaker Dr. Gražvydas Lukinavičius, group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, has designed several fluorescent probes for direct labeling of structures like DNA, actin, or microtubules in living cells. His talk will show the influences of small changes at the ligands and organic fluorophores, leading to increased binding affinity and biocompatibility.
