Movie of cell growth and division in cultured hTERT-RPE1 cells (telomerase immortalized human retinal pigment epithelium) using DIC optics.
This movie and the stack of images used to prepare them are grouped in the Cell Image Library.
Biological Process: Mitosis, Cell proliferation
Cells were cultured on glass coverslips in 10% FBS, DMEM/F12 medium plus glutamine, HEPES, penicillin and streptomycin and examined with a Leica DMIRE2 microscope with Leica 100x HCX PLAN APO NA 1.35 objective lens. images were captured at 3 min intervals with a Hamamatsu ORCA-ER2 CCD camera using Simple PCI 184.108.40.206 software.
