Happy Friday. We end our work week with another glimpse into the fascinating dynamics of plant cells. This #timelapse #confocal #microscope movie shows a field of living root #cells from an #arabidopsis #seedling. Cells have been engineered to express a #yellow #fluorescent #protein (#yfp) that binds to lipids (i.e. Fats). As such, parts of the cell that are enriched in these specific lipids are marked yellow including membranes surrounding the central vacuole and organelles called endosomes. Within these microscopic factories is the machinery that sorts, packages and eventually transports material within the cell. #plantscience #plantbiology #science #cellbiology #everynoblestory #tgifriday #rootresearch @noblefoundation #plantcell #celldynamics
