Captured during metaphase, fluorescence #microscopy was used to capture the division of a rat kangaroo's kidney epithelial cells. The rat kangaroo is a long-nosed marsupial that is quite common "down under" in Australia.

Fun Fact: Many neurons in the rat and mouse hippocampus respond as place cells, a type of pyramidal neuron that becomes active when an animal enters a particular place in its environment.

#Repost: The white mulberry is a unique species of tree native to north China. It grows to between 10-20m tall, is mostly cultivated to feed silkworms, and is known for releasing pollen at over half the speed of sound. Yes, you read that right.

What you see here is a zebrafish that's just five days old. During the larval stages (between 3-29 days old), zebrafish have the ability to regenerate their fins, skin, heart, lateral line hair cells, and brain!

There are 33 genera of Chrysophyceae, a type of freshwater algae. Nicknamed Golden Algae, individuals are unicellular but often form colonies made up of 6-50 cells.

Paramecia were among the first ciliates to be seen by microscopists, back in the late 17th century. These microorganisms are widespread in freshwater, brackish, and marine environments, as well as stagnant basins and ponds.

Urinary casts are cylindrical structures present in urine during certain disease states. They form in the distal convoluted tubule and collecting ducts of nephrons in the kidney, then pass into urine, which can then be detected using microscopes.

Did you know? There are approximately 4,000 to 11,000 white blood cells per microliter of blood. These white blood cells, as known as leukocytes, were captured with brightfield illumination and the new CX43 microscope.
