Ruby red actin filaments in a single cell at the surface of a tobacco leaf. Filaments are red because they have been tagged with a fluorescent protein called mRUBY. When the cell harboring mRUBY is illuminated with green light, it gives off this red color enabling one to visualize the filamentous actin network with a microscope 🔬 .
To label actin in a single leaf 🍃cell, we use a gene gun to deliver DNA encoding the mRUBY protein fused to another protein that binds actin. We use different colored fluorescent proteins to study how two or more cell components interact during plant growth and development.
Sometimes, we wonder how fruit this delicious can also manage to look so pretty at the same time. Who's with us? 😍🍊
