Title: Cancer Cells: Death (Step 1)
Description: Step-one of a six-step sequence of the death of a cancer cell. A cancer cell has migrated through the holes of a matrix coated membrane from the top to the bottom, simulating natural migration of a invading cancer cell between, and sometimes through, the vascular endothelium. Notice the spikes or pseudopodia that are characteristic of an invading cancer cell (step 1). Photo magnification: x12,000. See also:
