  • The location of SynK in cyanobacteria in both thylakoid and plasmamembranes was revealed by immunogold electron microscopy and Western blotting of isolated membrane fractions.

  • Colloidal gold particles coated with specific antibodies can be used as probes for the presence and position of antigens on the surfaces of cells. electron microscopy, the immunogold labels appear as extremely dense round spots at the position of the palladium, are applied as conductive coating to biological specimens and other non-conducting materials such as plastics and glass to be viewed in a argon plasma, has a triple role in this application.
