Combining the high-throughput and large scale analysis of fluorescence microscopy with the enhanced resolution capabilities of electron microscopy can allow imaging of cellular interactions and mechanisms without being limited by resolution.
Humans are rich in copper. And so are all other living organisms. But copper is toxic, therefore, it has to be kept at bay to counteract its cytotoxic effects in live cells – how do we stay healthy?
Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are stray cancer cells that shed from the primary cancer site and travel to healthy tissues and organs via the blood or lymphatic circulation. Once CTCs settle in their new location, they transform healthy cells around them into cancerous cells.
How developmental cues specify these distinct cell types in embryos and coordinate their patterning into functional tissues is one of the fundamental questions of developmental biology.
