Single molecules observed

... now it's very easy to discriminate between random occurrences of one ligand and a ligand interacting with the enzyme." Says Webb: "We see only one fluorescent ligand at a time, so we can now follow the kinetics [movement and behavior] in real time of individual reactions." He adds, "We can actually see the proc...
