Stressed culture cell. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a culture cell, showing excessive production of cell processes in reaction to stress. It is a human endothelial cell, a type that lines the internal body surfaces, for example blood or lymphatic vessels. The cell may be stressed because the culture medium or temperature is inappropriate for the cell.
