Rapid development of a patch of actin microfilaments at the contact site. Movie composed of 94 images of the actin array underneath the point of contact with a glass microneedle in A. thaliana expressing hTalin-GFP. Each image in the movie is a projection of six optical sections through the cortical cytoplasm underlying the outer epidermal cell wall. The movie commences at the time of touching the cell surface with the needle and ends 1 hour and 5 minutes later. The time between most images is about 40 seconds. Selected images from the movie are illustrated in Fig. 1. The movie plays at about 200 times real-time.
