An amine-reactive caged rhodamine was synthesized and conjugated to aminodextran. The resulting tracer was injected into a single cell zebrafish embryo, and a portion of the tracer was photolyzed in a single cell after development. The resulting fluorescent cell was imaged by fluorescence microscopy through a single round of cell division.
