  • Advances in optical imaging have given researchers an unprecedented view of the inner workings of a cell. Cellular processes are now known to be much more dynamic than previously imagined. This Insight explores some of the most exciting developments in cell biology, including how cells might perceive and interpret mechanical forces from the external environment, how RNA and protein can be transported between the nucleus and cytoplasm, how one molecule can influence a cell's phenotype and how molecular 'chaperones' assist in the crucial process of protein folding to maintain cellular homeostasis.
