Vector Labs Photo Contest 2017 Winner:  Spreading Megakaryocyte 

Spreading Megakaryocyte. Myosin is green, F-actin is red, vinculin is magenta, and nuclei are blue. 

Human Lens, Zonules and Cilliary Body

Vector Labs Photo Contest 2017 Winner:  Human lens with attached cilliary body and zonules. 

Zonules are stained for WGA(red) and MAGP1 (yellow). The ciliary body ( in the foreground of the image) and the lens (behind the zonules) are stained for F-actin (green) and nuclei (blue).
