Caption: Brain protein in cancer research, fluorescence deconvolution micrograph. Fluorescent dyes have been used to highlight cellular structures and proteins: actin (green), cell nuclei (blue), ubiquitin (red). Actin is a protein that is a major part of a cell's cytoskeleton. Ubiquitin is a regulatory protein used by cells to label proteins for destruction (proteolysis). It is being investigated for its possible role in destroying cancer cells. These cells are from a glioblastoma, a cancer of the glial cells, one of the support tissues found in the brain. The cells have been treated with tumour necrosis factor (TNF), a chemical used by the body to trigger cell death.
