Can the ViaFluor® Live Cell Microtubule Stains be used in live plant cells or protoplasts?

ViaFluor® Live Cell Microtubule Stains are cell-permeable taxol probes for imaging the microtubule cytoskeleton in live mammalian cells. We do not have permeability data for these probes to the plant cell wall. Based on literature, plant tubulin binds taxol weakly as compared to animal tubulin, so staining may be weak or non-existent. We do offer low-cost trial sizes for evaluation.
