Description

A polymorphic immune cell (red) glides over two spherical V12Ras-transformed mucus-secreting cells (green, possible tumor precursors) in a live three day old zebrafish embryo. This is one of four images in a series that illustrates the movement of the immune cell over the surface of the transformed mucus-secreting cells.
