Mitochondrial Shape in Pancreatic Cancer
|Title:||Mitochondrial Shape in Pancreatic Cancer|
This image shows mitochondrial staining (red) and nuclear staining (blue) of abnormal pancreatic ducts from a mouse model of human pancreatic ductal carcinoma. Mitochondrial shape changes occur throughout the progression of pancreatic cancer and the machinery that regulates the dynamics of mitochondria may be a promising new therapeutic target in the fight against this disease.
