Single U1 snRNPs diffusing and binding within a living HeLa cell nucleus. Left hand side original but contrast-enhanced data. Right hand side movie data was filtered using a spot-enhancing filter (3-pixel diameter, see ref. [8]) to improve U1 snRNP visibility. The movie was recorded at 200 Hz, the total object field corresponded to an area of 12.2×12.2 μm2 (AVI 3.78 mb)
