Image shows a z-series immuno-FISH of a mouse ES cell carrying a multi-copy alpha-globin BAC insertion: HP1 gamma immunostaining (blue) is shown relative to BAC FISH signal (red) versus combined lac operator, vector backbone FISH signal (green).
Formaldehyde fixed cells were imaged using an IMT-2 Olympus fluorescence microscope with 60x 1.4 NA objective lens. Z-series were recorded, and the slices processed by iterative constrained deconvolution. Pixel dimensions are 0.067 microns (xy) and z spacing is 0.2 microns.
