Individual neutrophils attract more cells to initiate the formation of a neutrophil swarm and cluster in living mouse tissue. Snapshots of a 30 minutes time sequence are shown. Individual neutrophils (multicolored), neutrophil clusters (red) and structural components of the mouse skin (blue) are displayed.

Diagnoses with Deepflash

Beta1- and beta2-adrenergic receptors in heart muscle cells: In the left cell, beta1 receptors are labeled – they are found both on the cell surface (yellow) and in the T-tubules (green). In the right cell, the beta2-receptors are labeled – they appear only in the T-tubules (green), but not on the cell surface (which is therefore not visible in the image).

Receptor location plays a key role in their function
