Super-Resolution Microscopy Reveals Fine Detail of Cellular Mesh

Ke Xu of the Biosciences Area used super-resolution microscopy to reveal the geodesic mesh supporting red blood cells, enabling them to be sturdy yet flexible enough to squeeze through narrow capillaries as they carry oxygen to tissues. The discovery could help uncover how malaria parasites hijack this mesh and destroy red blood cells. More>
