Methods in Cell Biology | Published : 2014


In this chapter, the authors outline in full detail, an uncomplicated approach that enables the combination of wide-field fluorescence super-resolution microscopy with electron tomography, thereby providing an approach that affords the best possible confidence in the structures investigated. The methodical steps to obtain these high-throughput correlative nanoscopic arrays will be visually explored and outlined in detail. The authors will demonstrate the feasibility of the method on cultured Caco-2 colorectal cancer cells that are labeled for filamentous actin. The presented images, morphometric data, and generated models illustrate the strengths of our correlative approach for future advanc..
