Src overexpression in NIH-3T3 fibroblasts. Overexpression results in actin relocalization toward structures known as "podosomes," which are thought to be involved in cell motility. In order to examine actin localization and apoptosis activity after treatment with src inhibitors, the cells were stained with Alexa Fluor 488 phalloidin, Bcl-2, and Alexa Fluor 647 F(ab′)2 goat antirabbit fragment of IgG. The nuclei were stained with Hoechst dye 33342. The cells were plated in a 96-well plate and visualized with the IN Cell 1000. The image was analyzed for granularity by using Developer Toolbox. Further processing was done with Adobe Photoshop. Work done by Evelyn Griffin, research assistant, in the laboratory of Thomas Schroeter, Ph.D., senior scientist.
