Mapping the water molecules is key to understanding the process of cell membrane fusion, which could help facilitate the development of treatments for diseases associated with cell fusion.

First direct 3D maps of water during cell membrane fusion

New 3D maps of water distribution amid cellular membrane combination are quickening logical comprehension of cell development, which could prompt new medications for infections...
