Title: Cancer Cells: Death (Step 6)
Description: Step-six 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. The cancer cell then loses its morphology, shrinks up and dies (step 6). Photo magnification: x14,000.
