Title: Human Foreskin Koilocytes
Description: A koilocyte is a squamous epithelial cell that has undergone structural changes as a result of infection by human papillomavirus (HPV). This image shows human foreskin keratinocyte (HFK) expressing HPV-16 E5 and E6 oncoproteins. Formation of koilocytes requires cooperation between HPV E5 and E6 oncoproteins. The cell culture is stained with hematoxylin and eosin (H&E).
