Observing Cancer Cell Behavior

Fluorescence images of pancreatic cancer micro-tumors after overnight culturing. Papillary structures pile up on micro-attachment sites (diameter 30μm), with numerous cells visible per patch. The rightmost micro-tumor has extended over two attachment sites. Nuclei, actin filaments, and microtubules are labeled with blue, green and red fluorescent markers respectively.
