Application of Janelia Fluor™ Dyes in Cardiac Tissue
Application of Janelia Fluor™ Dyes in Cardiac Tissue - Left image - Widefield fluorescence image of muscle tissue from an adult pig heart, displaying the distribution of collagen VI in the interstitial space between heart muscle cells. This sample was labelled with a primary antibody against collagen VI and a secondary antibody conjugated to JF549 (Cat.No. 6147). Scale bar: 50 μm. Middle image - An adult pig heart tissue section, 10 μm thick, labelled with antibodies against SERCA2ATPase, exhibits the intricate structure of the sarcoplasmic reticulum. A super-resolution image (top panel), obtained by exploiting spontaneous photo-switching of JF549 (dSTORM), shows far superior detail than the diffraction limited widefield image (bottom). Scale bar: 200 nm. Right image - A single isolated Wistar rat cardiomyocyte stained against α-actinin, displaying its periodic structure localised at the ends of sarcomeres (Z-discs). Widefield fluorescence of JF549 (left panel), prior to illuminating with a 561 nm laser to induce photoswitching and produce a dSTORM super-resolution image (right). Scale bar: 1 μm.
