Inflammation panel: A segmented polymorphonuclear neutrophil is on the left and, on the right and below, is a eosinophil leucocyte. For comparison the background red blood cell have a diameter of 7-8 micrometers. The picture was taken with a Nikon Eclipse 600 microscope, magnification was 1000x.

Cancer panel: [Part of a six-step sequence of the death of a cancer cell. A cancer cell has migrated through the holes of a matrix coated membrane from the top to the bottom, simulating natural migration of a invading cancer cell between, and sometimes through, the vascular endothelium. Notice the spikes or pseudopodia that are characteristic of an invading cancer cell (1). A buffy coat containing red blood cells, lymphocytes and macrophages is added to the bottom of the membrane. A group of macrophages identify the cancer cell as foreign matter and start to stick to the cancer cell, which still has its spikes (2). Shown: Macrophages begin to fuse with, and inject its toxins into, the cancer cell. The cell starts rounding up and loses its spikes (3). As the macrophage cell becomes smooth (4). The cancer cell appears lumpy in the last stage before it dies. These lumps are actually the macrophages fused within the cancer cell (5). The cancer cell then loses its morphology, shrinks up and dies (6).

Banner image by courtesy of Tom Ellenberger, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons; Source: [ http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/46/DNA_Repair.jpg ]. The enzyme DNA ligase I is shown repairing chromosomal damage. The three visable protein structures are: 1) The DNA binding domain (DBD) which is bound to the DNA minor groove both upstream and downstream of the damaged area, 2) The OB-fold domain (OBD) unwinds the DNA slightly over a span of six base pairs and is generally involved in nucleic acid binding, and 3) The Adenylation domain (AdD) contains enzymatically active residues that join the broken nucleotides together by catalyzing the formation of a phosphodiester bond between a phosphate and hydroxyl group.

The HIV gp120 envelope glycoprotein binds sequentially to the cellular receptors CD4 and a member of the chemokine receptor family (CXCR4 or CCR5) to initiate virus cell entry; Kwong et al., Nature, 420, 678-682 (12 December 2002). The antibody-protein binding to the CD4 receptor attempts to block the chemokine-receptor binding, thus prevent HIV-1 virus cell entry. Both gp120 and CD4 are glycoproteins Kwong et al., Nature 393, 648-659 (18 June 1998).

Banner image: Multiple fluorescence 2PE imaging. 2PE multiple fluorescence image from a 16 μm cryostat section of mouse intestine stained with a combination of fluorescent stains (F-24631, Molecular Probes). Alexa Fluor 350 wheat germ agglutinin, a blue-fluorescent lectin, was used to stain the mucus of goblet cells. The filamentous actin prevalent in the brush border was stained with red-fluorescent Alexa Flu or 568 phalloidin. Finally, the nuclei were stained with SYTOX ® Green nucleic acid stain. Imaging has been performed at 780 nm, 100 x 1.4 NA Leica objective, using a Chameleon XR ultrafast Ti-Sapphire laser (Coherent Inc., USA) coupled at LAMBS-MicroScoBio with a Spectral Confocal Laser Scanning Microscope, Leica SP2-AOBS.

Banner images: "Wellbee" Polio Poster - Photo Credit: Content Providers(s): CDC/ Mary Hilpertshauser [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons. This 1963 poster featured CDC’s national symbol of public health, the "Wellbee", who was depicted here encouraging the public to receive an oral polio vaccine. The CDC used the Wellbee in its comprehensive marketing campaign that used newspapers, posters, leaflets, radio and television, as well as personal appearances at public health events. Wellbee’s first assignment was to sponsor Sabin Type-II oral polio vaccine campaigns across the United States. Later, Wellbee’s character was incorporated into other health promotion campaigns including diphtheria and tetanus immunizations, hand-washing, physical fitness, and injury prevention. This artifact can be found in the Global Health Odyssey, which is the CDC’s museum featuring many various public health-related artifacts.
