Viewing proteins in motion with time-resolved crystallography

Time-resolved crystallography allows scientists to study how a protein’s shape changes during a reaction. Scientists use lasers to trigger the reaction, and then an X-ray beam to capture a series of snapshots of the protein as the reactions unfolds. They can then put those snapshots together to create a movie of the molecule in action. View and download the infographic . IMAGE: gobius.pt
