Fly Glial Cells With Extra Genome Copies
These images show glial cells of the optic chiasm in the adult fly brain that have accumulated extra genome copies.
Nematode Worm Nerve Cells Fusing Together
In the study during which this image was taken, nematode worms were engineered to express fusogens in their neurons. These nerve cells fused together, causing behavioral impairments.
Peripheral Sensory Neuron
Confocal micrograph of a peripheral sensory neuron in culture. Marker stains and antibodies are used to identify neurons (red), c-Fos protein (green) and nuclei (blue).
Mitochondria and Cell Fate
In these images, we can see human progenitor cells with their DNA-containing nucleus colored red after division and their mitochondria labeled in green.
This image shows fungiform taste papillae or “taste buds”, small structures or "bumps" found on the upper surface of the front two thirds of the tongue.
tdTomato Expression in Nodose Neurons
This image shows tdTomato (red) expression in nodose sensory nerve cells expressing P2X2.
Zooming In: Honeybee Wing
Pseudocolorized, non-coated scanning electron micrograph of foraging Giant Asian honeybee wing regions.
Modeling Osteoporosis in Fish
On the left are two healthy vertebral bodies in the spine of a medaka fish. The bone matrix (green) is normally mineralized and surrounded by bone-forming cells (magenta). On the right, we can see the situation in an osteoporotic fish.
Cultured Human Neuron
A colorized scanning electron micrograph of a cultured human neuron.
This image was taken in relation to a study in which a new method for identifying strains of bacteria and guessing their resistance to antibiotics used an AI model to analyze their growth dynamics in culture.
