Mitosis: multiplying like bunnies

We’ve showed you mitosis before, but never quite like this.  Using the 3D Cell Explorer we’ve made a time lapse observation of mouse Embryonic stem cells (mESCs) and got some exciting results.  Check out the video where you can see not 1, not 2 , not 3, but 4 mitotic divisions in a single field of view.  See if you can spot them all and identify all of the different stages of the cell cycle.

 

 

 

 

Experiment:

mESCs were incubated at 37°C and observed for 1h 45min with images every 10 sec.
