Human cortical neuronal cells

Human cortical neuronal cells are present in this digital image of fluorescence microscopy.To visualize different structures of cells, researchers used fluorescent dyes:📌MitoTracker Red CMXRos for mitochondria (red);📌Alexa Fluor 488 conjugated to phalloidin for the cytoskeletal F-actin network (green);📌Hoechst 33258 for DNA in the nuclei of cells (blue).

Human adenocarcinoma cells (HeLa line) fluorescence

Human adenocarcinoma cells (HeLa line) fluorescence These cells, derived from the adenocarcinoma of the cervix of a 31-year-old woman Henrietta Lacks in 1951, are probably the most commonly used cell line in the world. The cells circumvent the Hayflick limit, which makes them an ‘immortal’ line with the ability to continue the cell division after […]

Early stage mouse embryos

Early stage mouse embryos at the blastomere stage are visualized in this photo. When embryos were presented as two blastomeres, researchers introduced two different color fluorescent proteins inside each one and, according to the color of the daughter blastomeres, it is possible to see from which maternal cell they did originate. Technique: confocal microscopy;Authors: G. […]

Tumor microenvironment

The survival of tumor cells depends both on their own characteristics and on the parameters of the microenvironment, which consists of vessels, cells of the immune system, connective tissue components and the extracellular matrix, nerve and endocrine cells may also be present.  In addition, there is a large number of signaling molecules which regulate both […]

Phagocytosis of neuron

This image was created by Emma Vought from the Medical University of South Carolina, who works there as a multimedia specialist and has a master’s degree in medical illustrations. In the image: microglia phagocytosis of the stressed neuron. (Blue – complement C3d, Orange – Microglia). The image was used as an illustration to the article […]
