Super-resolution fluorescence microscopy (nanoscopy) enables imaging with a spatial resolution much higher than the diffraction limit of optical microscopy. However, the methods of fluorescence nanoscopy are still poorly suitable for studying living cells. In this review, we describe some examples of live nanoscopy-based discoveries and focus on the development of methods for nanoscopy and specific fluorescent labeling aimed to decrease the damaging effects of light illumination on live samples.
