    Thermo Fisher microtubes
    Transfer frequency (TF) of each plasmid in the 1:1 mating (upper panels) and 1:2 mating (lower panels) assays of liquid mating. Plasmid-harboring strains of Pseudomonas putida (A) or P. resinovorans (B) were used as donors. As the recipient strain(s), P. putida (or P. resinovorans ) and both strains were used in 1:1 and 1:2 mating assays, respectively. Cell mixtures were incubated in <t>microtubes</t> containing LB for 3 h at 30°C to allow mating. Bars show the mean TFs (transconjugants/donor) calculated from triplicate assays (shown by white diamonds). White bars show TFs of plasmids to P. putida , and black bars show TFs of plasmids to P. resinovorans . All experiments were performed twice, and their reproducibility was confirmed. Asterisks indicate significant differences between two conditions as assessed by Student's t test ( P

    Number of GFP-53BP1 foci in dependence on the diameter of the tubular confinement. a–d) Fluorescence images of GFP-labeled 53BP1 foci in U2OS cell nuclei. The cells are either grown on a) a 2D flat substrate (reference cell) or inside microtubes of b) 6 μm, c) 8 μm, and d) 18 μm diameter. White dashed lines indicate the positions of the <t>microtube</t> walls. Arrowheads point at 53BP1 foci, the scale bar equals 5 μm. e) Quantification of the amount of endogenously present foci of reference (red column) and confined cells (green, yellow columns: tube diameters smaller or larger than the critical threshold value of 8 μm (see Figure 1 ), respectively). Shown error bars are based on the standard deviation of the respective values, the number of evaluated cells is given at the base of each column.

    Effects of spatial confinement on cell growth and proliferation. a,b) Live-cell imaging of U2OS cells growing inside a microtube of a) 6 μm and b) 13 μm diameter. Shown are bright-field images of characteristic time-points over a 35 to 47 h time course including a 15 h pre-mitotic imaging phase in a) and during a minimum 21 h observation period after the onset of mitosis (0 h). The time-points are indicated in h:min format to the left of each image, arrows indicate the outer rims of the cell nucleus (blue) and the whole cell (yellow). In mitotic cells, the nuclear confinement disappears due to the breakdown of the nuclear envelope. Horizontal black arrows indicate cells moving toward the outside of the tube. The arising daughter cells are named d1 and d2 for the first and d3 and d4 for the second generation. Scale bars equal 20 μm. In a) a distinct increase of the cell volume preceding the cell division is visible (compare −15:00 with 00:00). The two daughter cells (d1 and d2) arising from the division move along the microtube length but remain confined throughout the time course. One of the two arising daughter cells in (d2 in b) moves out of the tube (4 h), whereas the other one (d1) undergoes a second confined cell division (17 h 20 min, d3 and d4). c,d) Illustration of the cell fates of U2OS cells during a 20-h period of cell growth inside microtubes with diameters either smaller than the critical value of 8 μm (green colouring; n = 27) or above (yellow coloring; n = 105) in comparison to the fate of unconfined reference cells (red coloring; n = 55). In c) the overall survival of the cells during the observation period is depicted. In d) it is further discriminated between the cells that divide or show no cell division. Any arising daughter cells were monitored for an additional minimum observation time of 3.5 h after mitosis.

    Figure Lengend Snippet: Representative length distribution of lipid microtubes measured from light microscope images. The average length was 30±15 μm.

    Article Snippet: Before using the microtubes, the cryoprotectant trehalose (Sigma, St. Louis, MO, USA) was added to the solution at a concentration of 50 mM to preserve the tubular structure during the drying process.

    Schematic diagram of the clinostat used to produce a vector‐free gravitational environment. The clinostat was set in an incubator in 5% CO 2 at 37°C and 100% relative humidity. The clinostat rotation is the rotation in the perpendicular direction around a horizontal rotation axis. The rotation control is rotated in a horizontal direction. The microtube containing the specimen was fixed at the center along the rotation axis. HTF, human tubal fluid; (░), sperm in HTF.

    Article Snippet: The TiO2 membranes were rolled up into microtubes by immersion of the sample in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) (VWR International S.A.S.), and then dried in a critical point dryer to avoid the collapse of the tubular structure caused by surface tension forces on the tubes during the solvent evaporation.
