Mechanics of the Cytoskeleton: Examining the Dynamics of Cytoplasmic Transport through Fluorescence Microscopy

Rajan P. Kulkarni
The cellular cytoplasmic space contains many different molecules and complexes confined within a small volume. Understanding how objects are transported in this crowded space is important for many potential applications. In this work, we examined various aspects of cytoskeletal mechanics, including microtubule-mediated and diffusive transport using advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques. Spatio-temporal image correlation spectroscopy (ICS) was employed to first examine microtubule-mediated transport of non-viral polyplexes within endosomes through the cytoplasm. ICS analysis of these polyplex-loaded...
