"I took the image because I wanted to know the expression of some proteins that we are interested in the lab in human prostate tissue. Understanding the role of  Mena, an actin cytoskeleton regulatory protein in cancer progression and metastasis is our main goal. This image fits [into that] because we did not know anything about Mena in prostate cancers."
