Title: The Motility of Cervical Cancer Cells
Description: HeLa cervical cancer cells stained for cytoskeletal proteins actin (green) and tubulin (red). The interplay of these cytoskeletal proteins drives cell motility (movement in the body). Mutations in molecular signaling pathways often result in abnormal cell motility, during which cytoskeleton proteins help the cancer cells invade other tissues (metastasis).
