Shedding Light on Sertoli Cell Function
This image reveals how a single Sertoli cell, which is genetically labeled with yellow fluorescent protein among other Sertoli cells in red, contacts a number of cells in the tubule.
Tertiary Lymphoid Structures in Sarcoma
This image shows a gene called OX40 marked in red, which is being expressed by T-cells, coloured magenta. Here, OX40 is associated with the tertiary lymphoid structures, which form local rally points for the immune system’s defense against the cancer
Medulloblastoma in the Mouse Cerebellum
This image is a high-power microscope view showing human MYC-amplified medulloblastoma ( large, pale blue cells at bottom) growing in the mouse cerebellum.
Mammary Tissue Cells
Mammary tissue is made up of a variety of cells, including epithelial (pink), immune (cyan), and fat (black) cells visible in this cross-section of a mouse mammary gland.
Mantis Shrimp Larvae
This image shows a Gonodactylaceus falcatus larva with scale bar.
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.
