Cancer cell nucleus. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a deformed nucleus (yellow) in a cancer cell. Healthy nuclei have a smooth membrane, that is spherical or ovoid, whereas this nucleus has indentations in several places. The nucleus contains the cell's genetic information. Within the nucleus is the nucleolus (brown), which is responsible for producing components of ribosomes, the cell's protein-manufacturing organelles. Magnification: x6000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
