Horse Dermal Fibroblast Cells (NBL-6 Line)

Distribution of F-Actin and Mitochondria in NBL-6 Cells

A triple fluorophore combination of MitoTracker Red CMXRos, Alexa Fluor 488 conjugated to phalloidin, and DRAQ 5 (pseudocolored cyan) was used to label an adherent log phase culture of NBL-6 cells for mitochondria, the filamentous actin network, and nuclear DNA, respectively. The cells were first treated with the MitoTracker probe in growth medium for one hour, washed and fixed with paraformaldehyde (prepared in growth medium), permeabilized, and blocked with bovine serum albumen.
