Description

Mitotic spindle flattening. Compression elongates microtubule spindle. Widefield fluorescence images of Ptk2 cell expressing GFP tubulin flattened with a micromanipulator at 3:00-3:30 (min:s). Imaged with a 60X 1.4 NA objective on a Nikon TE300. Images captured with a Hamamatsu Orca ER. Filter set was HQ FITC Chroma, Ex 480/40 and Em 535/550. Bar is 5 microns. Corresponds to Video 1 in Curr Biol. 2009 Jul 14;19(13):1086-95
