About this work


Human HeLa cells in culture, showing the nuclei in red and the tubulin component of the cytoskeleton in green. The blue staining is a mitotic checkpoint protein that remains in the cytoplasm until pro-metaphase when it is involved in regulating cell division. HeLa cells are derived from a human cervical cancer and can be propogated indefinitely in culture.
