Actin-rich fungipods attack a yeast attached to a cell membrane

Collaborator Aaron Neumann from the University of New Mexico is studying fungipods from human dendritic cells that attach to yeast.  The image above shows a combination of three different fluorophores that together show the behavior.  A green yeast is sitting on top of the cell membrane (transparent red) with three fungipods attached to it.  The fungipods are very dense in actin (blue).
