New Army-funded synthetic biologic research manipulate micro-compartments in cells, potentially enabling bio-manufacturing advances for medicine, protective equipment, and engineering applications.
Cell Death and Proliferation
This picture shows the wing imaginal disc of fruit fly. Green cells are live and proliferating cells that express an oncogene Src. Magenta cells are dying cells due to Src expression. Thus, Src promotes proliferation (green) and cell death (magenta) simultaneously.
IL-11+ Cells Are Located Adjacent to Tumor Cells
Colon tumor sections from ApcMin/+;Il11-Egfp mice were stained with anti-GFP (IL-11+ cells, green), anti-E-cadherin (white), anti-CD31 (endothelial cells, red), and DAPI (nuclei).
Odontoblasts containing the ion channel TRPC5 (green) tightly pack the area between the pulp and the dentin in a mouse's molar. The cells' long-haired extensions fill the thin canals in dentin that extend towards the enamel.
The Skeleton of the Malaria Parasite
Plasmodium at the ookinete stage viewed by expansion microscopy. The image shows the cytoskeleton of the pathogen following the labeling of tubulin. The conoid is the ring visible at the upper tip of the cell.
Myelodysplastic Syndrome Bone Marrow
Pictured is a bone marrow sample from a patient with myelodysplastic syndrome.
Rare Cell Type in the Small Intestine
This image shows staining for CFTR and GUCA2B in the healthy human small intestinal epithelium.
Proliferating Prostate Cancer Organoids
This image shows Cell Surface Stem Cell Marker (green), dividing cells (red) and DNA (blue).
A montage of microscopic images that show the stages of the cell cycle, in which a single cell duplicates its DNA and eventually divides into two "daughter" cells. Staining shows the cell nucleus in blue, and the microtubules in red.
Emerging Intestinal Villi
This image shows emerging intestinal villi with green stem cells supporting their growth.
