Microscopy preprints – New tools and techniques

Posted by , on 8 October 2021

Here is a curated selection of preprints published recently. In this post, we focus specifically on new imaging tools only.

Preprint selected by Pablo J. Sáez who also participated in our Hot Reads post this month:

A turquoise fluorescence lifetime-based biosensor for quantitative imaging of intracellular calcium. Franka H. van der Linden, Eike K. Mahlandt, Janine J.G. Arts, VJoep Beumer, Jens Puschhof, Saskia M.A. de Man, Anna O. Chertkova, Bas Ponsioen, Hans Clevers, Jaap D. van Buul, Marten Postma, Theodorus W.J. Gadella Jr., Joachim Goedhart

By engineering a fluorescent protein (mTurquoise2), the authors develop a new calcium sensor. This sensor, named Tq-Ca-FLITS, detects calcium and reports with a change in the fluorescence lifetime, which can be calibrated and subsequently used to the measure absolute calcium concentrations. Tq-Ca-FLITS can be targeted to different organelles.
