Holographic laser microsurgery is used to isolate single amnioserosa cells in vivo during early dorsal closure. During this stage of Drosophila embryogenesis, amnioserosa cells undergo oscillations in apical surface area. The postisolation behavior of individual cells depends on their preisolation phase in these contraction/expansion cycles: cells that were contracting tend to collapse quickly after isolation; cells that were expanding do not immediately collapse, but instead pause or even… CONTINUE READING
