Hi all. 

Since acetone will kill GFP fluorescence: How will I get the 
cytoskeleton of 293 fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells stained? 
Rhodamine-phalloidin and coumarin-phalloidin work well on acetone 
fixed cells, but in methanol - nope. How might I get out of this 
dilemma? Would adding the phalloidin dye to the culture medium help, 
depite it will hurt cells?
Could I use another fixing procedure, actin dye or what should I do?

Standing by for your suggestions!
