A Layered Mounting Method for Extended Time-Lapse Confocal Microscopy of Whole Zebrafish Embryos Sanat Upadhyay1, Leoncio Vergara2, Pranjali Shah2, Jan-Åke Gustafsson3,4, Ioannis Kakadiaris1,4, Maria Bondesson5 1Computational Biomedicine Lab, Texas Institute of Measurement Evaluation and Statistics, University of Houston, 2Institute of Biosciences and Technology, Texas A&M Health Science Center, 3Department of Biology and Biochemistry, Center for Nuclear Receptors and Cell Signaling, University of Houston, 4Department of Biosciences and Nutrition, Novum, Karolinska Institutet, 5Department of Intelligent Systems Engineering, Indiana University This article describes a method to mount fragile zebrafish embryos for extended time-lapse confocal microscopy. This low-cost method is easy to perform using regular glass-bottom microscopy dishes for imaging on any inverted microscope. The mounting is performed in layers of agarose at different concentrations.
Mouse Fetal Whole Intestine Culture System for Ex Vivo Manipulation of Signaling Pathways and Three-dimensional Live Imaging of Villus Development Katherine D. Walton1, Åsa Kolterud2 1Cell and Developmental Biology, University of Michigan, 2Department of Biosciences and Nutrition, Karolinska Instituet Novum Improved imaging technology is allowing three-dimensional imaging of organs during development. Here we describe a whole organ culture system that allows live imaging of the developing villi in the fetal mouse intestine.
