Imaging Polarization in Budding Yeast.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We describe methods for live-cell imaging of yeast cells that we have exploited to image yeast polarity establishment. As a rare event occurring on a fast time-scale, imaging polarization involves a trade-off between spatiotemporal resolution and long-term imaging without excessive phototoxicity. By synchronizing cells in a way that increases resistance to photodamage, we discovered unexpected aspects of polarization including transient intermediates with more than one polarity cluster, oscillatory clustering of polarity factors, and mobile "wandering" polarity sites.
