Recently, DNA-PAINT single molecule localisation microscopy (SMLM) has shown great promise for quantitative imaging. However, labelling strategies so far have relied on approaches that are multivalent or affinity-based. Here, we demonstrate tagPAINT - the covalent labelling of expressed protein tags (SNAP tag and Halo tag) with single DNA docking strands for single molecule localisation microscopy via DNA-PAINT. We utilised tagPAINT for T-cell receptor signalling proteins at the immune synapse as a proof of principle.
