    Fruit fly egg chamber


    A fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) egg chamber with microtubules shown in green and actin filaments shown in red. Egg chambers are multicellular structures in fruit flies ovaries that each give rise to a single egg. Microtubules and actin filaments give the chambers structure and shape. This image was captured using a confocal microscope.

    More information on the research that produced this image can be found in the Current Biology paper "Gatekeeper function for Short stop at the ring canals of the Drosophila ovary" by Lu et al.
    Public NoteAlt text: An oblong shape with green and red fibers throughout. Researcher-Provided Description: A Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly) wild-type egg chamber in which microtubules were labeled with a GFP-tagged microtubule-associated protein (Patronin, green) and actin filaments were labeled with rhodamine-conjugated phalloidin (red). The image was acquired on a Nikon W1 spinning disk confocal microscope (Yokogawa CSU with pinhole size 50 µm) with a Photometrics Prime 95B sCMOS Camera and a 40X 1.25 N.A. silicone oil lens, controlled by Nikon Elements software. Dear Abbey, We have some images for you. Would you like to have a look at them? How do you want me to share them with you (TIFF files are too big for email). Best, Vladimir Gelfand
