Fluorescent Speckle Microscopy Literature References
Fluorescent speckle microscopy (FSM) is a technique that is useful for the analysis of macromolecular dynamics in living cells. Fluorescent speckles are formed by the random association of fluorophores with a macromolecular structure and were originally discovered in microtubules. The methodology has since been expanded to study a wide variety of other cytoskeletal (and associated) proteins.
