Ratiometric imaging of the cell wall pH of an Arabidopsis trichome. By Firas Bou Daher

Ratiometric imaging of the cell wall pH of an Arabidopsis trichome. A dual green and red marker targeting the apoplast is used as an indicator for wall acidity. More green fluorescence indicates more alkaline areas whereas more red fluorescence coincides with zones of lower pH. This micrograph is a maximum projection of 934 images made using a Leica SP8 confocal microscope.
