Two-color STED microscopy in living cells.

Abstract

Diffraction-unlimited resolution provided by Stimulated Emission Depletion (STED) microscopy allows for imaging cellular processes in living cells that are not visible by conventional microscopy. However, it has so far not been possible to study dynamic nanoscale interactions because multicolor live cell STED microscopy has yet to be demonstrated and suitable labeling technologies and protocols are lacking. Here we report the first realization of two-color STED imaging in living cells. Using improved SNAP(f) and CLIP(f) technologies to label epidermal growth factor (EGF) and EGF receptor (EGFR), we report resolutions of 78 nm and 82 nm for 22 sequential two-color scans in living cells.
