Immunoelectron microscopy - Methods and protocols
AbstractThe tribute that the scientific community has to pay to this technique is impressive: thanks to immunoelectron microscopy the scientistâ€™s dream to link strucure (form) and function, one of the dreams that shaped even the phylosopical reflection of our predecessors, well, this dream has became nearly a full reality while it was just fact and function, a battle between a dead body (structure) and a ghost (function). Immunoelectron microscopy provided in fact some of the first examples of our technical capacity to show how the form of a structure is so deeply linked to its functional activity. In a perspective view it has been something conceptually forerunner of present day synthetic biology and molecules design capacities to provide us with new functions or the way to modify/alter those functions we are interested in....
