Artful Arterial Artificers

Unlocking the secrets of cells from a human artery, grown in culture. We can stain components of cells to study where and how they work! Blue stain is the cell nucleus (DAPI), red is actin (phalloidin). Green stain is a protein called PDE3B we study in the lab, seen here under 40x magnification.
