[…] For live fluorescence imaging, larvae were anesthetized with 0.01% ethyl 3-aminobenzoate methanesulfonate (tricaine; Sigma A5040) and pictures were taken using a Nikon SMZ1000 stereomicroscope equipped with NIS-Elements BR 3.0 software (Nikon, Japan). For live confocal imaging, larvae were anesthetized with 0.005% tricaine and embedded in 1.5% low-melting-point agarose in a glass-bottomed Petri dish. Confocal pictures were taken with a Zeiss LSM 510 Meta using 405, 488 and 543 nm laser lines for DAPI, GFP and mCherry analysis, respectively. Imaging data were processed using Zeiss LSM Image Browser Version, Imaris 7.1.1 (bitplane), Image-Pro Plus 6.0, ImageJ ( and Adobe Photoshop CS6 ( software. […]
