Caption: Breast cancer cells. Immunofluorescent light micrograph of a clump of cultured human breast cancer cells. Fluorescent dyes have been used to highlight proteins in the cell nuclei (green). The dyes have also highlighted the Golgi apparatus (pink) and extensive protrusions of actin (purple). The production of actin, a structural cell protein, was initiated with neuregulin, a growth factor chemical. Cancer cells typically grow rapidly in a chaotic, uncontrolled manner, and can invade other tissues. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. If it has spread beyond the breast, the prognosis is poor. Immunofluorescence uses antibodies to attach fluorescent dyes to tissues and molecules in a cell. Magnification: x980 when printed 10cm wide.
