Z-stack with overlay
Low magnification timelapse
Figure. Movies of desmoplakin in desmosomes. Top: Z-stack of live hiPS cells expressing mEGFP-tagged desmoplakin imaged on a spinning-disk confocal microscope. Images start from the bottom of the cells and end at the top. The right panel shows the left panel overlaid onto the equivalent transmitted light image. Bottom: timelapse movie of a hiPS cell colony expressing mEGFP-tagged desmoplakin. Images were collected in 3D every 4 minutes for 8 hours on a spinning-disk confocal microscope. Images are maximum intensity projections; playback speed is 2400x real time.
