✯ HeLa cells are a continuously cultured cell line of human cancer cells, which are immortal thrive in the laboratory. They are widely used in biological and medical research. The spherical cell at centre is undergoing apoptosis (programmed cell death). Apoptosis occurs when a cell becomes old or damaged. Blebs (vesicles) called apoptotic bodies form on its surface, which prevent toxic or immunogenic substances from leaking when it is phagocytosed (engulfed and digested) by specialist…

NK 'natural killer ' cell attacks a tumor cell

Immune system fighting a cancer cell. A killer T-lymphocyte (orange) inducing a cancer cell to undergo Programmed Cell Death.

Migrating cancer cell. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a cultured cancer cell moving (metastasising) through a hole in a support film. Numerous pseudopodia (arm-like), fillipodia (thread-like) and surface blebs (lumps) can be seen. These features are characteristic of highly mobile cells, and enable cancerous cells to spread rapidly around the body, and invade other organs and tissues (metastasis).
