LSM 880 Airyscan Fast Mode. HEK 293T cells transfected with mitochondrial OMM targeted msGFP and ER lumen targeted mRuby3. The system was able to clearly image ER tubules, which is usually challenging in this cell type. In most cells, the ER exists as such a fine network of tubules that traditional light #microscopy cannot resolve individual tubules and instead an ER sheet is observed. In fact, many people who study the ER, use a specific cell line, COS-7 cells, because the COS-7 ER network is more spread out at the cell periphery which allows researchers to #image the ER tubules. Finally, we were able to clearly image ER tubules in HEK #cells. Jason D Vevea, #University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. #microscope #carlzeiss #zeiss
