Newly developed tools facilitate studies of inflammatory cells, including monocytes, in skin in real time. Liu and colleagues utilized intravital fluorescence microscopy and appropriate genetically engineered mice to visualize CX3CR1-expressing monocytes (green) in relationship to keratinocytes (red) and collagen (blue) 24 hours after hapten challenge of sensitized mouse skin. See the article on page 1328 as well as the relevant commentary by Voisin, Doebel and Nagao (page 1251) for additional information.
