This is HIV.A scanning electron microscopic image of HIV. The glycoprotein complex on its surface enables the virus to attach to and fuse with target cells to initiate the infectious cycle. (The little bastards)
Colored scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of squamous cell carcinoma (cancer) cells from a human mouth. The many blebs (lumps) and microvilli (small projections) on the cells' surfaces are typical of cancer cells. ~ Our World Through A Microscope
Vestibular hair cells of the Inner ear help divers (like the one in today's pic) know their up down orientation in water. Sounds under water are magnified. When we hear sounds (whether under water or above) microscopic hairs in our inner ears vibrate.
Coloured SEM of a cultured cancer cell moving through a hole in a support film. Numerous pseudopodia, fillipodia and surface blebs can be seen and are characteristic of highly mobile cells which enable them to metastasise rapidly.
