Movie Two 

Epidermis of an Arabidopsis plant expressing Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP)-targeted to mitochondria (Logan and Leaver, 2000).  False coloured green. One frame per second. Six-times real-time.  Captured from an epifluorescent microscope.

Movie Three

GFP-labeled mitochondria in Arabidopsis epidermis.  A mitochondrial division event is indicated by the arrow. One frame per second. Six-times real-time.  Captured from an epifluorescent microscope.

Movie Four

As movie two but running at a real-time speed of one frame per second. Arrow “a” points to a terminal matrixule; arrow “b” points to a medial matrixule.  See Logan et al (2004). Captured from an epifluorescent microscope.

Movie Five

A protoplast from a leaf of an Arabidopsis seedling expressing mito-GFP.  Captured from a confocal microscope. Image manipulation using Velocity.

These are QuickTime movies.  If you need QuickTime for Mac or PC, get it here:

Movie Five

A protoplast from a leaf of the motley mitochondria mutant, mmt1. Green - mitochondria; red - chlorophyll autofluorescence.  Captured using a confocal microscope. Image manipulation using Bitplane Imaris software. Thanks to Cory Glowinski of Bitplane.

PLANT MITOCHONDRIAL DYNAMICS

New

Movie One. Mitochondria (mito-GFP) and actin (mCherry-mTalin) in the friendly mutant. Arrows indicate clusters moving on an actin bundle, while arrowheads indicate a single moving mitochondrion. Captured at 1 frame per 3 s with playback at 2fps. Scale bars = 10 µm. From El Zawily et al (2014).
