Analysis of cell mass of an amoeboid cell during translocation through a narrow pore. Image sequence acquired by CCHM of an amoeboid cell translocating through a narrow pore in 3D rat-tail collagen (1 mg/ml). To invade through the pore, the cell dynamically deforms its cell body and nucleus. DPD depict mass fluctuations between preceding and following images. As shown by DPD, the largest influx of cell mass occurs between time 01:12:00 and 01:15:00, corresponding to the time of nuclear translocation. For full sequence see Suppl. Video V8. Scale bar: 10 μm.
