Imaging Intracellular Temperature using Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM)

Video Presentation by Dr. Kohki Okabe

In this presentation, Dr. Kohki Okabe explains how intracellular temperature distributions in live cells can be visualized with temperature sensors based upon fluorescence lifetime. His research group observed an intracellular temperature gradient between the nucleus and cytoplasm. By manipulating local temperatures inside living cells, they also discovered a unique cellular response, including acute translation reprogramming through RNA granule formation, revealing the existence of intracellular thermal signaling.
