Nano-imaging sheds light on how anti-cancer drug Taxol works

Through a combination of high-resolution cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) and new methodology for image analysis and structure interpretation, researchers have produced images of microtubule assembly and disassembly at the unprecedented resolution of 5 angstroms. Among other insights, these observations provide the first explanation of Taxol's success as a cancer chemotherapy agent.
