Reversibly switchable fluorescent proteins (RSFPs) can be effectively used for super-resolution optical fluctuation imaging (SOFI) based on the switching and fluctuation of single molecules. Several properties of RSFPs strongly influence the quality of SOFI images. These properties include (i) the averaged fluorescence intensity in the fluctuation state,(More)
Previous stochastic localization-based super-resolution techniques are largely limited by the labeling density and the fidelity to the morphology of specimen. We report on an optical super-resolution imaging scheme implementing joint tagging using multiple fluorescent blinking dyes associated with super-resolution optical fluctuation imaging (JT-SOFI),(More)
Two types of small photoblinking Pdots with high brightness, strong photostability, and favorable biocompatibility, are designed. Super-resolution optical fluctuation imaging is achieved using these Pdots. Imaging of subcellular structures demonstrates that these small photoblinking Pdots are outstanding probes for fast, long-term super-resolution(More)
Axial excitation confinement beyond the diffraction limit is crucial to the development of next-generation, super-resolution microscopy. STimulated Emission Depletion (STED) nanoscopy offers lateral super-resolution using a donut-beam depletion, but its axial resolution is still over 500 nm. Total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy is widely used(More)
Nanoscale spatiotemporal clustering of RNA polymerase II (Pol II) plays an important role in transcription regulation. However, dynamics of individual Pol II clusters in live-cell nuclei has not been measured directly, prohibiting in-depth understanding of their working mechanisms. In this work, we studied the dynamics of Pol II clustering using Bayesian(More)
Advances in light-sheet microscopy have enabled the fast three-dimensional (3D) imaging of live cells and bulk specimens with low photodamage and phototoxicity. Combining light-sheet illumination with super-resolution imaging is expected to resolve subcellular structures. Actually, such kind of super-resolution light-sheet microscopy was recently(More)
Direct visualization of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) at high spatial and temporal resolution in live cells is crucial for understanding the intricate and dynamic behaviors of signaling protein complexes. Recently, bimolecular fluorescence complementation (BiFC) assays have been combined with super-resolution imaging techniques including PALM and SOFI(More)
Advances in the development of small photoblinking semiconducting polymer dots (Pdots) have attracted great interest for use in super-resolution microscopy. However, multicolor super-resolution imaging using conventional small photoblinking Pdots remains a challenge due to their limited color choice, broad emission spectrum, and heavy spectrum crosstalk.(More)
