Amazing! #Repost #instacool #video #videooftheday @jmgardnermd with @repostapp. ・・・ Natural Killer cells (NK/T cells) vs cancer cells. @amyhdeekenmd: - Awesome video highlighting the power of the innate immune system with NK T-cells destroying malignant cells of some type (when cells are grown in tissue culture they are a bit harder to identify their origin by microscopy). In all seriousness, this looks like a video game on a microscopic level #🔬(How could I not 󾬑 it?). We are just at the beginning of trying to harness this power in the treatment of cancers. I read 2 inspiring studies this week with great results of physician scientists using genetically altered forms of both HIV virus and polio virus to reprogram a patient's immune systems to target their cancer (Acute lymphoblastic leukemia and glioblastoma multiforme -an aggressive form of brain tumor) #pathology #oncology #medicine #immunology #immunesystem #immune #molecular #genetics #personalized #medical #medicalschool #medstudent #medicalstudent #medschool #immunologist #naturalkillercells #lab #research #researcher #cancer source: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2016-05/waeh-ht052016.php ・・・

#Repost @ittybittysmall with @repostapp ・・・ @beexhpanda >Here is a 0.1mm (100um) Euplotes Ciliate! Euplotes are omnivores that have oval bodies and flat undersides with 9 cirri (the little leg like structures that it walks with). Ciliates, like this one, use cirri for locomotion, and to set up feeding currents which can be seen whirling in front of the buccal (mouth) region. Cirri is composed of fused cilia and are an advanced evolutionary trait of spirotrichs; a large group of ciliate protozoa. Euplotes 3-dimensional shape is best observed from multiple viewpoints. #Euplotes #ciliate #cirri #cilia #magnified #microscopic #microorganism #science #biology #microbiology
