Melanoma cell. Immunofluorescent Light Micrograph of a melanoma cancer cell, cultured from a human tumour. The cell nucleus (blue) is in the process of division; cytoplasm stains orange; actin stress fibres (green, protein) surround the cell & serve as a supportive network. This cancer is typically derived from melanin-forming skin cells. Melanoma is a highly malignant cancer consisting of large undifferentiated cells that divide rapidly, and invade healthy tissue. Immunofluorescence is a technique which uses antibodies to attach fluorescent dyes to specific tissues and molecules within the cell. Magnification: x125 at 35mm size.
