The cell cycle is extensively characterized, yet there is much to learn about the decision-making process involved in cell division. Here, the optical redox ratio (ratio of NADH to FAD fluorescence intensity) of MCF10A cells was imaged every 20 minutes over 12 hours using multiphoton microscopy. Cell tracking was used to monitor individual cells over time. We found a positive correlation in the variations of the optical redox ratio with the phases of the entire cell cycle. This study reveals the novel role of redox signaling in the progression the cell cycle.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
