Chloroplast-actin (cp-actin) filaments play a pivotal role in chloroplast photorelocation movement. This protocol describes observation of cp-actin filaments in intact palisade cells of Arabidopsis leaves (Kong et al., 2013). The live cell imaging of cp-actin filaments is taken on moving chloroplasts, so that this protocol is useful for analysis of cp-actin dynamics that are induced by blue light.
