Featured image

Our featured image is called Dictyostelium Trees on Fire and was acquired by Peggy Paschke. The image shows Dictyostelium discoideum cells stably expressing the cAMP sensor Flamindo2 were plated at high density and starved for 5 hours. Cells were imaged as a 5×5 tile scan with a Nikon AX Confocal microscope (488 nm excitation) using a 4x air objective for 5 hours. Shown is a cropped part of the last acquired tile scan, at the very edge of the agar slop, which creates the elution of Dicty Trees. Tile scans were stitched together in ImageJ. The LUT is mpl magma.
