Endosymbiotic origin of eukaryotes by time and genetic distance 
Research Article Using Confocal Microscopy
The aim of this study was to investigate and provide evidence to support the migration and morphological change of mesothelial cells during tissue injury response. By using confocal microscopy imaging Nagai and peers, 2013, were able to observe clearly delineated mesothelial cells within ex vivo mouse abdominal wall tissue culture, as well as transformed mesothelial cells (MeT5A) in in-vivo tissue culture and witness their morphological transition from flat cells to cuboidal cells. This transition was able to be observed as confocal microscope analysis allows for the control in the depth of field and eliminates/reduces background matter, so that mesothelial cells positioned on top of each other can be differentiated. In addition, these confocal microscopy techniques also allowed the researchers to observe the horizontal migration of these mesothelial cells across the tissue culture, moving through gaps between surrounding cells. These findings provided evidence in support of the change and migration of mesothelial cells during injury response.
