Fly Cycle

Caption: In XZ SPIM time-lapse captures from the developing Drosophila wing disc, mitotic nuclei (His2Av-mRFP, blue) typically rise to the apical epithelial surface, come into contact with MTOCs (GFP-Cnn, yellow), and then move basally after division in a process called interkinetic nuclear migration.
