    T-cell calcium dynamics visualized in a ratiometric tdTomato-GCaMP6f transgenic reporter mouse

    Tobias X Dong et al.
    Salsa6f is a novel, ratiometric genetically encoded Ca2+ indicator that combines the power of ratiometric chemical Ca2+ indicators with the ability, when expressed transgenically, to image cellular Ca2+ signals amid complex tissue environments in vivo.

    Intermittent Ca2+ signals mediated by Orai1 regulate basal T cell motility

    Tobias X Dong et al.
    Orai1 channels activate intermittently in motile T cells, generating calcium transients, detected by a novel genetically encoded indicator and inducing pauses that favor antigen scanning.
