The cell structure section of the dictionary is based on representative images of antibody-stained human cancer cell lines. Each sample is stained with an in-house generated HPA-antibody and counterstained with markers for microtubules, the endoplasmic reticulum and the nucleus. The cells have been grown, fixated and permeabilized before incubation with the antibodies. Confocal microscopy has been used to provide high-resolution, four-color images. The aim of the cell structure section is to highlight the organelle structure of a cell.
