Human melanoma cell undergoing cell division. The
chromosomes (blue) have separated and the two
daughter cells have almost split apart – only a
small bridge of cytoplasm remains. The green
staining labels the endoplasmic reticulum and the
red labels the mitochondria. The image was
produced on a confocal microscope; the ER and
mitochondria are from a single optical section but
the chromosomes are a 3D reconstruction from a
series of sections.
