Hair development of the Draparnaldia freshwater algae is affected by the surrounding levels of phosphorus, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, as well as light. These hairs serve the role of nutrient intake, which leads to increased hair formation when nutrient levels are low.

Here's another image that came to us from a research team at the Olympus Discovery Center at the University of Texas at Dallas! The image comes from mice treated with an endotoxin. In green is the EGFP-Ribo-Tag, in red IBA1 which stains microglia, and in blue NeuN which stains neuronal nuclei.
