The image shows COS cells transfected with the human angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) receptor. An unnatural amino acid was incorporated into the ACE receptor via Genetic Code Expansion, enabling site-specific labeling. The inserted unnatural amino acid was subsequently clicked with a terazine dye, Me-Tet ATTO-655, allowing for fluorescent visualization of the ACE receptor on the membrane. Acti

Immunofluorescence of DIV14 hippocampal mouse neurones and astrocytes. Vesicular glutamate transporter 1 (VGLUT1) is stained with ATTO643 labeling kit. Actin filament staining (orange) is visualized with Phalloidin-ATTO565. Neurofilament L is shown in green with ATTO488 labeling kit. DNA staining (cyan) via Hoechst 34580. Images were taken at 40X magnification on a Zeiss LSM900 Airyscan2 setup.

Spiraling Through the Brain: Taenidial Ridges in the Drosophila Brain This Structured Illumination Microscopy image presents a slice of a Drosophila brain after undergoing an 8-fold Expansion Microscopy approach and labeling with NHS-Atto643. While this staining method targets the entire proteome, in this case it especially highlights the taenidia (part of the tracheal system) very efficiently.

The membrane probe mCLING conjugated with Atto647N was used in mice hippocampal cultures as an approach to visualize endoplasmic reticulum cisterns in the soma of the neurons. The image is from a culture that was subjected to an expansion microscopy protocol, achieving ~8.3 physical expansion of the specimen, before acquiring the image in an LSM 900 Airyscan 2 Zeiss microscope.
