HaCaT culture cells, light micrograph Featured Human Body Print

HaCaT culture cells, light micrograph

HaCaT cells. Immunofluorescence light micrographof HaCaT daughter cells that have resulted fromone cell dividing into two (mitosis). The nuclei, which contain the cell's genetic information, arepurple. The green strands are microtubules, whichare involved in cell division. HaCaT cells arehuman skin cells (keratinocytes) that have beentransformed (mutated) to be immortal. They haveunlimited growth potential, but unlike otherimmortal cell lines they are not tumourigenic(tumour forming). This means they grow in anorderly fashion and retain all the structural andfunctional features of human skin. HaCaT cells aregrown in the laboratory and are used in research, including wound healing research. Magnification:x980 when printed 10cm wide

Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon 1 skulls Featured Human Body Print

Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon 1 skulls

Neanderthal and Cro-Magnon skulls. The Neanderthal skull (left) was found at La Ferrassie, France, in 1909, and is thought to be around 70, 000 years old. The other skull is Cro-Magnon 1, found as Les Eyzies, France, in 1868, and dated to 30, 000 years ago. Neanderthals and Cro-Magnons cohabited in Europe between about 40, 000 and 30-25, 000 years ago, when the former died out. Neanderthals had occupied the region from as far back as 350, 000 years ago. Cro-Magnons were anatomically similar to modern humans, and are their ancestors. It is not known for sure what caused the extinction of the Neanderthals, but competition with the advanced Cro-Magnons is unlikely to have helped their cause

Artwork of a healthy human heart

Human heart. Artwork of a healthy human heart, seen in external view. The main blood vessels servicing the heart are visible at top of image. At upper left is the branching vena cava, where blood arrives from the body. Blood is pumped through the right side of the heart (at left of image) to the lungs and back to the heart through the pulmonary system of blood vessels. Oxygenated blood is then pumped by the left side of the heart (at right of image) to the rest of the body, through the main artery, the aorta (at centre right of image). The heart is supplied with fresh blood through the coronary arteries (red) seen on the surface of the heart
