Time lapse series showing motility and morphology of cultured hTERT-RPE1 cells (telomerase immortalized human retinal pigment epithelium) arrested in G1 using 0.08 uM nocodazole (Uetake and Sluder 2010, Curr Biol 20:1666-1671).
A movie prepared from this time series is grouped in the Cell Image library.
Biological Process: Cell motility, Cell morphology
Cells were cultured on glass coverslips in 10% FBS, DMEM/F12 medium plus glutamine, HEPES, penicillin and streptomycin and examined with a Leica DMIRE2 microscope with Leica 10x NA 0.3 phase contrast objective lens. Images were captured at 3 minute intervals with a Hamamatsu ORCA-ER2 CCD camera using HC Image 18.104.22.168 software.
