Golgi Lullaby

Dancing fluorescent Golgi bodies in tobacco leaf cells, visualised with confocal laser scanning microscopy.

plantendomembrane describes this video as follows:

Dancing fluorescent Golgi bodies in tobacco leaf cells, visualised with confocal laser scanning microscopy. Plant Golgi bodies move through the cell along the actin cytoskeleton. We are able to see them with a light microscope with the help of green fluorescent protein (GFP). We then edited the movies in Adobe Premiere to add the rainbow hue-change effect. We like to think they might do this in reality too.
