Caption: False-colour transmission electron micrograph (TEM) showing the classic appearance of two spindle cell nuclei from a human sarcoma. Sarcomas are cancers of connective tissues (bone, nerves, smooth muscle). Spindle cells are characteristic of poorly-differentiated sarcomas, which display little evidence of their tissue of origin. Many other sarcomas resemble their tissue of origin, either cytologically, structurally or metabolically, and are described as being well-differentiated. Within each elongated nucleus (blue & yellow) is a prominent, rounded nucleolus (orange). Magnification: x11,300 at 6x4.5 cm size.
