Tubulin, F-Actin, and DNA Distribution in HeLa Cells

Tubulin, F-Actin, and DNA Distribution in HeLa Cells

The HeLa cell* culture shown in this confocal image was labeled with mouse anti-alpha-tubulin primary antibodies followed by goat anti-mouse secondary antibodies conjugated to Alexa Fluor 488. In addition, the specimen was stained with Alexa Fluor 546 conjugated to phalloidin and TO-PRO-3, targeting the filamentous actin network and cell nuclei, respectively.

This injustice, while leading to key discoveries in immunology, infectious disease, and cancer, also raised important conversations about privacy, ethics, and consent in medicine.
