Caption: Cancer cells. Polarised light micrograph of normal and cancerous liver cells. The cells are undergoing mitosis (cell division) and the distribution of DNA (blue), actin (red) and microtubules (green), can be seen in the cancerous cells. The cancer has spread to the liver, a process known as metastasis. Secondary liver cancer is incurable, but life can be prolonged with anti-cancer drugs.
