Cell Death by Necroptosis
Editor's Pics

Researchers used lattice light sheet microscopy to visualize cells dying by necroptosis, a form of inflammatory cell death. In this image, purple marks cells with undisrupted cell membranes; yellow shows disrupted cell membranes; blue shows that the cell membrane has broken and marks a degenerating cell nucleus.

Vascular Cell Development in the Brain
Editor's Pics

Slice of an embryonic mouse brain showing the development of vascular endothelial cells (green) and mural cells (red). The latter can contract and thus influence the blood flow in the vessels.

Cell Garbage Removal
Editor's Pics

Cells on the left have the normal UBQLN2 gene and the red dots show the cell "garbage removal" process in action. The cells on the right have gene mutations that disrupt this process allowing toxic matter to build up in cells. This has been associated with ALS.
