Mouse Chandelier Cells
This image shows a brain section of a two-week-old mouse pup with normal levels of chandelier cells in their visual cortex. The chandelier cells are shown in red and the sub-region of the visual cortex which processes visual information is shown in green.
Retinal Ganglion Cell
Example of retinal ganglion cells with axons and dendrites in the retina of a healthy eye.
This is a cancer organoid.
Neurons Initiating the Nausea Response
This image shows GLP1R neurons (red) that play a critical role in detecting toxins in blood vessels (green) and initiating the nausea response.
The Power of Glycans in Cancer Treatments
This is a heavy layer of glycans, seen here in green, covering immune cells and providing a way to target cancer-specific markers in the body.
A drug called enoxacin, originally developed to treat bacterial infections, has proved capable of boosting the metabolism and attenuating the weight gain induced by a fatty diet in tests with mice.
Astrocytes and Neurons
This confocal image of a mouse brain tissue shows the astrocytes (red) and neurons (green).
Modeling Infertility in Flies
Researchers have identified a gene that plays an important role in fertility across multiple species. Pictured is a normal fruit fly ovary (left) and a fruit fly ovary with this gene dialed down (right).
Transplanted Pancreatic Islet Cells
This image shows transplanted pancreatic islet cells in which insulin is shown in red, the cell nucleus in blue, and the blood vessels in aqua.
How Do Flies Attach to Objects?
This is an electron micrograph of the fly foot. The adhesive spatula-shaped setae (light-blue structures) allow the fly to attach itself to objects.
