Intestinal tract cancer cells. Coloured trans- mission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through adenocarcinoma cancer showing three cells (purple). This cancer is from the intestine. Adenocarcinomas are common cancers arising from glandular epithelial cells, such as mucus- secreting cells in the gut. Several irregular projections are seen on the edge of two cells (centre left); cell cytoplasm is purple/pink. Cancer of the intestine (usually the colon) is generally treated by removal of part or all of the affected area, if the cancer is not too extensive. Magnification: x27,500 at 35mm size.
