Caption: Metastasis of a cancerous cell. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of an ovarian cancer cell, showing pseudopodia protrusions, a prominent feature of actively motile cells. The role of pseudopodia in metastasis (the spread of cancer cells around the body) is poorly understood but it appears that a protein, named autocrine motility factor (AMF), causes pseudopodia to extend prior to cell movement. Locomotion is integral to the entire process of metastasis. Magnification: x2500 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
