How beautiful these healthy lung cells are. Immunofluorescence light micrograph of pulmonary endothelial cells. Endothelial cells are specialized epithelial cells that line the inner surface of blood vessels. Nuclei, which contain the cell's genetic information, are purple; actin filaments, which are major components of the cytoskeleton, are cyan; mitochondria, which generate energy for the cell, are white.
Good Article: Dysautonomia literally means dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The ANS controls involuntary bodily synergies between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous symptoms. Necessary involuntary functions include things like heartbeat, breathing, digestion, and body temperature regulation. Studies have also linked the nervous system to the immune system, suggesting a possible correlation between ANS and autoimmune disorders.
MORE ON THE EFFECTS OF DEFICIENCY OF FRATAXIN PROTEIN! The researchers found that buccal and blood cells (tissues outside nervous system) that produce less frataxin are affected more by symptoms. Frataxin deficiency results in iron accumulation within mitochondria of affected cells causes mitochondrial export rate to deplete. Frataxin deficient cells not only generate more free radicals, but also show a decline capacity to mobilize antioxidant defenses in which greatly affect the FA's patien...
This image shows photoreceptor neurons of the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster, with the photoreceptors visualized by phalloidin (green). The light-sensitive protein rhodopsin 1 (yellow) is aberrantly localized in the cytoplasm of those photoreceptors that have defective mitochondria (non-blue), while the normal photoreceptors are marked by RFP (blue).

"The dream of every cell is to become two cells." -- Francois Jacob. Cell division 3D printed and cast in a single piece of solid bronze. A mother cell buds off a daughter cell; the mother's previous births have left puckered scars on her cell wall. Inside this single cell of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker's yeast ) you can see the major cellular structures: chromosomes pulling apart in the nucleus mitochondria massive round vacuoles clusters of lipid droplets the folds of the endoplasmic r...
