Microscopic image of cancer cells expressing mEAK-7 gene, which was described in research led by UCLA’s Dr. Paul Krebsbach. mEAK-7 is magenta colored; the lysosomal markers LAMP1 and LAMP2, which play an important role in mTOR signaling, are blue and green, respectively. The circular white object is the nucleus colored by DAPI fluourescent stain. The combination of the magenta, green, and blue results in a white color.
