This image was taken to assess the presence of insulin-containing vesicles in human pancreatic beta cells differentiated from human pluripotent stem cells. It is a transmission electron micrograph of human pluripotent stem cells differentiated toward pancreatic beta cell. Deriving human pancreatic beta cells differentiated from human pluripotent stem cells is one part of my research, and ultrastructural analysis of insulin- containing vesicles is a critical component.
