Related to Figure 4: PIP3 enrichment along the developing cleavage furrow in an asymmetrically dividing NB from a brain explant
Time-lapse movie of a dividing larval NB in a brain explant. The Venus fluorescent protein sequence is split into a N-terminal and a C-terminal half, each half fused to the PIP3-specific binding sequence of the GRP1-PH domain. Co-expressed as UAS-transgenes using worGal4, the N- and C-terminal Venus-GRP1-PH fragments are recruited to PIP3-rich plasma membrane domains where they complement to form fluorescent Venus-PIP3 reporter molecule. Single focal plane, imaged every 15 secs. Time stamp is mins:secs. White arrow denotes NB and yellow arrow denotes PIP3 sensor enrichment along the cleavage furrow.
