    Microtubules in African green monkey cells

    6891

    Microtubules in African green monkey cells. Microtubules are strong, hollow fibers that provide cells with structural support. Here, the microtubules have been color-coded based on their distance from the microscope lens: purple is closest to the lens, and yellow is farthest away. This image was captured using Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (STORM).

    Investigator3D super-resolution image of microtubules in a BSC-1 cell. Image is color-coded according to the z-position of microtubules. Purple is closest to glass (and observer), and yellow is farthest from the glass (and observer). The image was captured using Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (STORM) on a custom-built microscope.
