Cell Image of the Month - CCNB1

Some proteins are expressed periodically during a specific stage of the cell cycle or as a response to various stimuli. As a result, at any given time some cells express the protein of interest and some do not. In the Cell Atlas we denote these images as single-cell variation (SCV). An example of a protein with such variations is CCNB1.

CCNB1, shown here in U-251 MG cells, is essential for cellular proliferation. The abundance of CCNB1 oscillates across the cell cycle, and peaks during G2/M phase. CCNB1 is expressed in the cytoplasm during interphase and translocate to the nucleus during G2/M transition...Read more


Cell Image of the Month - Let there be SUN

21_H8_1_red_green.jpg

SUN2 (Sad1 and UNC84 domain containing 2), found in the nuclear membrane of cells, is an essential protein for many cellular processes. SUN plays a large role in the organization of multi-nucleated muscle cells, and dysregulation of SUN can cause muscular dystrophy among other diseases...Read more


NIFK interacts with the proliferation marker Ki-67

Melanoma is a common form of cancer in the skin and among skin cancers it is the most deadly form. Melanoma originates from cells of melanocytic origin and most typically begins as a small intraepidermal tumor (melanoma in situ). As the tumor continues to grow and progress, tumor cells invade the epidermis and eventually spread to regional lymph nodes and subsequently via hematogenic spread to distant organs. Tumor thickness of the primary tumor is the most important determining prognostic factor and thus is early discovery of key importance for survival.
