CIL:41644 - http://www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/41644
Description: Confocal micrograph of a mast cell in human eye with conjunctivitis. This image shows a single mast cell invading conjunctival tissue in response to an inflammatory agent or pathogen. The mast cell contains vesicles of histamine (red dots). Mast cells are among the first cells of the immune system to react to the presence of an invading pathogen and they facilitate the movement of leukocytes (white blood cells) and other immune cells toward the site of infection. The image is composed of 42 stacked sections. Honorable Mention, 2011 Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition®.

Look Ma, No Cavities! Image of the Week - June 23, 2014CIL:38807 - http://www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/38807Description: This color-enhanced photomicrograph shows different species of bacteria that cause dental plaque - a colorless film that forms on teeth caused by the growth of bacterial colonies. Plaque develops naturally, and in most cases can be easily removed with regular brushing. However, if left it can harden and cause dental calculus (tartar), which is difficult to remove and if not treated can result in tooth decay. This image shows different species of oral bacterial colonies, including Capnocytophaga and Aggregatibacter, growing on an agar plate. A sample of plaque was removed from a periodontal pocket of a patient with gum disease. The periodontal pocket is the region between the tooth surface and the periodontium (gum). The bacterial colonies were left to grow in culture on an agar plate so they could be studied more closely. Lighting the agar plate from below shows the detail and differences between the structure (morphology) of the colonies present. The original image was colorless so a color was added post-imaging to emphasize the colony morphology and identify the different species of bacteria present.Author: Derren ReadyLicensing: Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 UK: England & Wales (CC BY-NC-ND 2.0 UK)

“Life: Magnified” - Images of the Week - June 16, 2014

Life: Magnified is an exhibit of scientific images showing cells and other scenes of life magnified by as much as 50,000 times. The exhibit is on display at Washington Dulles International Airport’s Gateway Gallery from June through November 2014.

Check out the news story here: http://www.nigms.nih.gov/News/Results/Pages/20140605.aspx

The Cell: An Image Library-CCDB is very proud to note that five of the images in the exhibition are also featured in The Cell.

Blebs! Image of the Week - May 26, 2014
CIL:39108 - http://www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/39108
Description: This scanning electron micrograph shows a single cell grown from a culture of lung epithelial carcinoma cells. The purple area shows blebs, which are irregular bulges in the plasma membrane of the cell caused by localized decoupling of the cytoskeleton from the plasma membrane. The green area shows an area of the cell where the blebbing is not occurring or is not visible.
