How Does The Cytoskeleton Transport Molecules?

MicaCam - Livestream 11th May 2022


MicaCam is where life science researchers come together live to chat, interact, and make discoveries together. Share your questions and engage during the livestream. 

Join us, and your life science research community, for short demonstrations of how Mica radically simplifies your workflows.

Key Learnings

  • In this episode, see how 3D cysts derived from MDCK cells help scientists understand how proteins are transported and recycled in tissues and the role of the cytoskeleton in this transport.
  • Experts will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate live what parameters to consider when planning long-term live cell imaging experiments and how to decide which type of imaging mode is best for a given sample - widefield or confocal?
  • By capturing all 4 labels simultaneously in a single acquisition in both widefield and confocal modes, Mica, the world’s first Microhub, comes with no constraints and radically simplifies workflows through a high degree of automation.


Manuel Müller, Scientist - Philipps-Universität Marburg, Germany 

Manuel Müller is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Cytobiology at Philipps-Universität Marburg, Germany, working in the group of Prof. Ralf Jacob. His research is focused on the dynamic regulation of microtubule assembly in epithelial plasticity. He studies the impact of microtubules tyrosination/detyrosination cycle on cellular morphology, migration and adhesion.
