Images processed with Huygens in the field of Cell Biology


This image shows COS-7 a fibroblast-like cell line derived from monkey kidney tissue, with STED imaging of mitochondria marked by Tom20 staining, (green), and cytoskeletal protein tubulin color coded for depth. Mitotic spindle clearly visible in the center. Images were taken with a Leica SP8 STED 3X microscope and deconvolved with Huygens software.

A primary hepatocyte in 3D cell culture. After cytokine treatement, the primary hepatocytes undergo a process known as epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT). This process is an early step during the progression towards malignant transformation. The cell exhibits a mesenchymal morphology with actin stress fibers spanning the cell body. The actin cytoskeleton is visualized by phalloidin staining, DNA is stained with Hoechst33528. Confocal image was acquired with the Nikon A1R. Devonvolution is performed with Huygens Essential.

It can be observed a tetranucleated cell in which the DNA is shown in Cyan, the microtubules in red and the centrosome is in green. Very interestingly, this tetranucleated cells presents only one y-tubulin spot. DNA was stained with DAPI (in Cyan), microtubules where detected with a-tubulin antibody (in red) and the centrosomes detected with y-tubulin antibody are shown in green. Image was acquired in a Zeiss Axioimager Z2 epifluorescence microscope, deconvolved with Huygens software, and after it image was created using the Surface Render option from Huygens software.

Mitochondrial dysfunction in senescent fibroblasts. 20x air (0.7 NA) widefield image captured on a Leica upright of living human fibroblast cells stained to show the mitochondrial network (green) and it's activity (red) and cell nuclei (blue, using mitotracker green, TMRM and Hoechst respectively). Z stack fluorescent channels were deconvolved in Huygens Essential and rendered using SFP. Individual cells can be seen to have varying levels of energy production (red intensity), as well as intracellular variation between individual mitochondrial networks.

Deconvolved confocal image of a cardiomyoycyte during regeneration. The acquisition is on the whole mount zebrafish heart so we can observe the sarcomera in all the cardiomyocyte (specific structure present in all the cardiomyocyte, leading to contraction of the heart. The sarcomera is the kind of lines that you can see in all the cells). The cardiomyocyte with atypical shape comes from a lineage tracing doing to identify these cells during the adulthood. This picture was adquired with a Zeiss 880 Confocal

Differentiated hepatocytes in 3D cell culture Primary hepatocytes in a 3D cell culture matrix. The cells are differentiated and maintain the organotypic polarized morphology and functionality. The actin cytoskeleton exhibits fine fibrils, supporting the bile-canaliculi which form at cell-cell interfaces. Confocal image was acquired with the Nikon A1R. Devonvolution is performed with Huygens Essential.

Hela Cells


HeLa cells where treated with Nocodazole and Ice for 40 min, after which the Nocodazole was washed out, and cells where incubated with complete media at 37ºC for 5 min, fixed and processed for Immunofluorescence. It can be seen the beginning of renucleation of the microtubules (in red) from the centrosome (in yellow) due to incubation with complete (warm) media the after Nocodazole wash out. DNA was stained with DAPI (in blue), microtubules where detected with y-tubulin antibody (in red), and the centrosomes detected with a-tubulin antibody are shown in yellow due to co-localization of a-tub with y-tub at the centrosomes (the remaining y-tub is observed in green on the cell cytoplasm). Image was acquired in a Zeiss Axioimager Z2 epifluorescence microscope, deconvolved with Huygens software, and after it image was created using the MIP option from Huygens software.

HeLa cells (MIP) imaged with Zeiss LSM 880 Airyscan system and deconvolved with the Huygens Array detector using the superXY mode. Cells are stained with anti-Ki67 and secondary-Alexa488 (magenta), Phallodin-TMR (White), and anti-alphaTubulin and secondary Abberior Star Red (shown in green). Image obtained with Zeiss Airyscan microscope.

Hela cells with actin cytoskeleton labelled (Phalloidin, Abberior STAR Red). Imaged with Abberior Instruments’ STEDYCON and deconvolved with Huygens Professional.
