CELLS alive! Library: Contents of Volume 4

Mitosis in an animal cell

4.1 Mitosis in an animal cell

Cells from the Chinese Hamster Ovary are shown undergoing mitosis. Beginning with a cell spread on the substrate, follow prophase, anaphase, metaphase, telophase, cytokinesis and reattachment of the two daughter cells to the substrate.

Human melanoma cells

4.2 Human melanoma cells growing in culture.

Unlike normal cells which in culture grow only until there is one solid layer of cells, cancer cells grow over one another unchecked. Shows multiple cell divisions (mitosis) over a 48 hour hour period.

Human breast cancer cell

4.3 Human breast cancer cell

Shows a broad ruffling membrane of an individual adherent cell.

Human prostate cancer cells

4.4 Human prostate cancer cells

Both a single cell and a culture showing a variety of cell shapes in which dividing cells are apparent.

Human lymphoma cells

4.5 Human lymphoma cells


Spirillum volutans (spiral bacteria)

4.6 Spirillum volutans (spiral bacteria)

Illustrates the rapid darting motility of these flagellated aquatic bacteria. Color-enhanced phase contrast microscopy.

Enterococcus faecalis (enteric bacteria)

4.7 Enterococcus faecalis (enteric bacteria)

These bacteria are known to become antibiotic-resistant and are shown here in time-lapse growth sequences. These were photographed using color-enhanced phase contrast microscopy.

Streptococcus pneumoniae (pathogenic bacteria)

4.8 Streptococcus pneumoniae (pathogenic bacteria)

Also commonly becoming antibiotic-resistant. Cause ear infections and pneumonia. Color-enhanced phase contrast microscopy.

Dermatophagoides farinae (dust mite)

4.9 Dermatophagoides farinae (dust mite)

Dust mites are common in household dust and are responsible for allergic responses in susceptible people. It's primarily the feces that cause problems.
