Here's another work-in-progress. It's sort of terrible right now but I have plans for much improvement. It has to do with a mechanism to thwart a common cancer-associated upregulation of survival/proliferation pathways in epithelial cells. Right now it looks like the treatment is Pepto-Bismol. I assure you it is not. The colors need some work.
Here's what I've done with it so far. Normally I would avoid such a heavy-handed use of red, a color normally chosen to highlight, but there are two other banner images in the series with which I am trying to keep things consistent. The first one, which I posted on Oct. 19th, involves a colorimetric assay in which the starting solution is red. Turns out for this one, I couldn't have planned it better if I tried. To make the proteins pop against a red background, I colored them green, apropos indeed as these are mucins, or the proteoglycans that make mucous slimy. Voila!
