Abstract

Fluorescent Speckle Microscopy (FSM) is a technology for analyzing cytoskeleton dynamics, giving novel insight into their roles in living cells. New applications of FSM, together with the development of computer-based FSM image analysis, will make FSM the first microscopy-based method to deliver quantitative kinetic readouts at high spatial and temporal resolution for a wide variety of macromolecular systems. Here, we review the most recent applications and developments and give a glimpse of future directions and potentials of FSM.
