The Stars Align: New Imaging Technology Reveals Architecture in Dividing Starfish Cells

Seeing how the building blocks of cells align over time is important for understanding how cells are built, move, grow and divide. Recently, researchers from Japan collaborated with imaging scientists at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) to develop a new cellular probe, POLArIS, that allows real-time imaging of molecular orientations in live cells. The study,
