Time-Lapse Analysis Offers New Look at How Cells Repair DNA Damage

This time-lapse video shows more than 35 hours of DNA repair activity in a cell. It’s composed of 223 images taken at varying time intervals. The four-second mark in the video corresponds to the cell receiving a high dose (4 Gy) of radiation. The bright spots are called radiation induced foci. They indicate the movement of repair proteins toward a site in the cell where a DNA double strand break has occurred. (Credit: Berkeley Lab) ... Full story
