Myotubes at 40 h APF are under mechanical tension Single plane spinning disc confocal movie of three myotubes labelled by Mef2-GAL4, UAS-GFP-Gma at 40 h. The middle one is partially severed by a UV laser at the right side (see Supplementary Figure 2). Time is indicated in seconds and starts at the cut. Movie plays with 5 frames per second.
