Co-alignment of protein bodies with actin microfilaments. (A) Expression of the mouse talin (mTalin) actin-binding domain fused with YFP localizes to the actin cables of the cytoskeleton within leaf epidermal cells after agro-infiltration. (B) An endoplasmic reticulum-targeted cyan fluorescent protein-elastin-like polypeptide fusion (pPCEK) accumulated as protein bodies (PBs) within the cell's cytoplasm. (C-E) When co-expressed, the induced novel PBs co-aligned with the actin microfilaments. Bar, 10 μm.
