Analysis of Intracellular Protein Dynamics in Living Zebrafish Embryos Using Light-Sheet Fluorescence Single-Molecule Microscopy

Posted on 13.09.2021 - 15:09
Single-molecule microscopy techniques have emerged as useful tools to image individual molecules and analyze their dynamics inside cells, but their application has mostly been restricted to cell cultures. Here, a light-sheet fluorescence microscopy setup is presented for imaging individual proteins inside living zebrafish embryos. The optical configuration makes this design accessible to many laboratories and a dedicated sample-mounting system ensures sample viability and mounting flexibility. Using this setup, we have analyzed the dynamics of individual glucocorticoid receptors, which demonstrates that this approach creates multiple possibilities for the analysis of intracellular protein dynamics in intact living organisms.
