Somal translocation of retinal ganglion cells visualized by the Ath5::membraneGFP transgene. Captured by the Lightsheet Z.1 microscope. Movie by Jaroslav Icha, edited by Julia Eichhorn.

Early cleavage divisions of a zebrafish embryo, where mitotic spindles are visualized by the Eef1a1::dclk2-GFP transgene. Movie captured by Jaroslav Icha and Franziska Decker during the PhD course. Imaged at the Lightsheet Z.1 microscope.

The retina of a 3 day old zebrafish embryo expressing Ath5::RFP transgene (magenta) with antibody stained acetylated microtubules (green). This image was selected for the annual exhibition Images of Science of the Max Planck Society
"Caught in the act": Apically dividing neuroepithelial cells showing various stages of mitosis. Mitotic nuclei can be distinguished by condensed chromatin staining. The developing retinal neuroepithelium was stained with DAPI.
The model of retinal development from (Weber et al., 2014) showing the newly described committed precursor cells, some of which divide in non-apical locations in the retina.
"Feather in the cap ": The neuroepithelial cells bear primary cilia at their apical side. Zebrafish neuroepithelium immuno-stained for Acetylated tubulin (magenta), Centrin (green) and nuclei (Gray)
The cis and trans-Golgi apparatus labeled in four cells of the zebrafish larval epidermis.
A figure from the review about neuronal migration (Icha and Norden, 2014) showing tangential (A) and radial (B) migration, graphics by Franziska Friedrich.
Quantitative analysis of cell cycle dependent nuclear movement from (Leung et al., 2011).
