Dynamics of the microtubule array in a control cotyledon. Movie composed of 100 images of the microtubule array underneath the point of contact with a tungsten needle in A. thaliana expressing TUA6-GFP. All images in the movie are single optical sections in the same focal plane taken at intervals of 3–4 seconds for a period of 6 minutes. Against a framework of stable microtubules in the cell cortex just below the cell wall, mobile, linear strands of diffuse fluorescence sweep through the cell beneath the cortical array. The movie plays at about 18 times real-time.
