Localisation of MarvelD3 by confocal microscopy. Caco-2 cells grown on filters (A, C, D, E) and HCE (B) cells grown on coverslips were fixed and processed for immunofluorescence with the indicated antibodies. The samples were then analyzed by confocal microscopy. Panels A, B, and C are xy sections, and D and E are reconstitutions of serial z line scans. In panels A and C, two sections from different samples are shown that were both taken at the interface between the tight and adherens junctions to facilitate comparison between the two different labels in each specimen. Note, occludin and MarvelD3 tightly follow each other in and out of the focal plane. Bars, 10 μm.
