Caption

Developing heart cell, fluorescence deconvolution micrograph. Fluorescent dyes have been used to highlight cellular structures and proteins: actin (green), cell nucleus (white), calcium channel protein synthesis (red). Actin is a contractile muscle protein. Calcium channels are vital to the proper functioning of a muscle cell, and here is being investigated with calcitonin gene related peptide (CGRP). This heart muscle cell is from a newborn baby, and is still developing and maturing into one of several specialised roles carried out by various types of heart cells.
