Nicholas-Cejda-Planaria GFP TxRd (2 intestinal gene markers) DAPI for biotek calendar 14in x 8.235in
Nicholas Cejda
Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation

Description: Planarian intestine, 4x, GFP TxRed and DAPI Montage, Two intestine genes are labeled by In Situ Hybridization in Schmidtea mediterranea, a new model organism studied for its astounding regenerative ability. When amputated, this intestine will completely regenerate in about two weeks, along with a new brain, eyes, muscles, pharnyx, gonads, skin, and more!

Amy Abell WTKi67
Amy Abell
University of Memphis

Additional credit: Noha Shendy, R. Jackson Mobley and Lilly He
Description: Trophoblast stem cells expressing differential Ki67 staining.
The image was taken at 40X dry magnification using Z-stack imaging mode. In red is the actin stain, in green is Ki67 stain (a proliferation marker) and in blue is nuclei stain. The differential Ki67 staining in the nucleus is the indicator of cell cycle stage of the cell.

Honorable Mentions

Mouse e7.5 implantation site imaged at 10x
David Burk, Pennington Biomedical Center

Description: Mouse e7.5 implantation site imaged at 10x. Red is anti-Complement C3, blue are DAPI-stained nuclei, and green is tissue autofluorescence.

Neural crest-derived stem cells in a fluorescent labeled heart tissue section
Kexiao Zheng, Suzhou Institute of Nano-tech and Nano-bionics, Chinese Academy of Sciences

Description: Neural crest-derived stem cells in a fluorescent labeled heart tissue section.

Medusa
Miarasa Steele, Case Western Reserve University

Description: A single mouse small intestine organoid embedded in a MatiriGel dome, stained with fluorescent dyes, and imaged at 10X using manual mode. This organoid was allowed to proliferate for two weeks without passaging, resulting in the highly budded structure. Colors were inverted in Photoshop for aesthetic purposes.

Neural stem Cell from Mice
Nicola Alessio, Universita della Campania

Description: ICC for GFAP (green), MAP2 (red) and DAPI (blue) in Neural stem Cell from Mice after differentiation, (10x10 300dpi, 40x magnification).
Image captured with: Cytation 3

 

Large Network of Cortical Neurons
Sean Naughton, Augusta University

Description:  Large Network of Cortical Neurons ( primary cortical neurons, 20x, stitched together from 24images,  Beta Tubulin in Red, Synapsin in Green, Nuclei in blue).
Image captured with: Cytation 3

 

F-actin and G-actin co-localization in rat middle cerebral artery
Shaoxun  Wang, University of Mississippi Medical Center

DescriptionF-actin and G-actin co-localization in rat middle cerebral artery. The picture was taken using Z-stack and generated by Z-projection.

Filamentous-actin
Shimara Gunawardana, South Dakota State University

Description:   Filamentous-actin (Alexa Fluor® 488 and Dylightâ Phalloidin) and Globular-actin (Alexa Fluor® 594 Deoxyribonuclease-I) staining of Hs578T triple negative breast cancer cell line using a 40X objective in manual mode. G-actin monomers combine to form F-actin bundles that mediate migration of breast cancer cells.

Hound healing assay
Ying-Hsuan  Shih, University of California- Santa Barbara

Description: Wound healing assay, testing cell regeneration of human primary retinal pigmented epithelium using immunostaining (blue: hoechst33342, green: phalloidin, red: ki-67 ). Images were taken using cytation5, 20x montage.
Image captured with: Cytation 5
