Exploring tissue morphodynamics using the photoconvertible Kaede protein in amphioxus embryos

Abstract

Photoconvertible proteins are powerful tools widely used in cellular biology to study cell dynamics and organelles. Over the past decade, photoconvertible proteins have also been used for developmental biology applications to analyze cell lineage and cell fate during embryonic development. One of these photoconvertible proteins called Kaede, from the stony coral Trachyphyllia geoffroyi , undergoes irreversible photoconversion from green to red fluorescence when illuminated with UV light. Undertaking a cell tracing approach using photoconvertible proteins can be challenging when using unconventional animal models. In this protocol, we describe the use of Kaede to track specific cells during embryogenesis of the cephalochordate Branchiostoma lanceolatum . This protocol can be adapted to other unconventional models, especially marine animals.
