Molecular organization in tissues

Molecular organization in tissues in relation with their properties and functions

Synchrotron X-Ray microbeams have become promising and decisive tools to explore the local structure of biological molecules, tissues and organs in relation with their functions. Three main systems interest our team : amyloid fibers in kidney, intermediate filaments in hair tissues and lipids in epidermis. These molecules organize in situ at the micron scale. Therefore, they provide diffraction patterns with more or less well-separated and identified peaks.
