Lymphoma cell. Light micrograph of a lymphoma cancer cell grown from a human culture. The cell contains several nuclei (pink) and a daughter cell (at right) is budding off from it. As is typical of cancer cells, it has an uneven & often bizarre shape and a surface of cytoplasmic projections (yellow). It undergoes rapid cell division. Lymphoma cells produce malignant tumours of the lymph nodes and spleen. They possess the ability to invade other tissues and travel to distant parts of the body to seed secondary tumours. In the laboratory, lymphoma cells can be used to culture viruses. Darkfield illumination. Magnification: x700 at 35mm size.
