Cell Image of the Week – Mitotic Catastrophe

Posted on Updated on

Here is one of the images that we took using a Leica SP8 confocal microscope this week in the lab.
It is a 3D image of a HeLa cell that has completely stuffed up mitosis (undergone mitotic catastrophe). It has separated whole chromosomes randomly into 2 daughter cells instead of separating the two identical chromatids in two.

And here is an artistic version just for fun !
