Baby Hamster Kidney Fibroblast Cells (BHK-21)

Filamentous Actin and Mitochondrial Networks in a Culture of Bovine Pulmonary Artery Cells

Details of the mitochondrial and filamentous actin networks were revealed in the cells shown in this confocal image by treating the culture they were resident in with MitoTracker Orange CMTMRos (pseudocolored yellow) and BODIPY FL (pseudocolored blue) conjugated to phallacidin, a mushroom toxin. The culture was also treated with the red-absorbing nuclear counterstain DRAQ5.
