Long-term live cell cycle imaging of single Cyanidioschyzon merolae cells

Live cell time-lapse images were captured using a confocal fluorescence microscope (OLYMPUS FV3000). As the objective lens, we used USLSAPO 100XS (OLYMPUS) with silicon oil, because regular oil ruptures the bottom membrane of the ibidi dish. β-tubulin-sfGFP T1 cells were seeded on the ibidi dish and incubated at 42 °C, 5% CO2. We set a white LED light on the stage top incubator. The light intensity was set at 15 μmol/m2/s. Time-lapse imaging was started 4 h after the cell seeding. The time-lapse images were obtained every 15 min for 40 h.
