C.elegans TS mutants during live cell imaging

Fast temperature shifts in 10 seconds

C. elegans thermosensitive embryo mutants (CYK-4 ts) examined under the microscope with a CherryTemp platform.

TS mutants and live cell imaging

Induce entry or exit of “Dauer” stage

Heat shock: control the timing of temperature exposure

Used for embryos or adult worm studies.

Follow GFP-tagged mutants and the phenotype induction
