A monolayer of human foreskin fibroblast cells was infected with Toxoplasma gondii expressing EGFP-tagged TgCentrin2 and mCherry-tagged TgIMC1 (innermembrane complex scaffold protein). Images acquired using API DeltaVision on a Olympus IX70 inverted microscope. Objective: Olympus 100X oil immersion, 1.35 NA. Filters: EGFP, ex 450-490 em 500-540, mCherry, ex 555-592 em 600-665. Dichromatic mirror: Chroma 89021. Captured with CoolSnapHQ/ICX285. 3D stack image is raw data corresponding to deconvolved stack: CIL# 10500. Unpublished image that is similar to images published in PMID: 16518471. See publication for other experimental details.
