Anastasis cells ENH.jpg

Cells undergoing anastasis

During anastasis, human cells recover from the brink of death. Top: HeLa cells stained blue to highlight DNA and red to label mitochondria before treatment with ethanol to induce apoptosis. The bottom panel shows (l to r) untreated cells, ethanol-affected cells and washed cells that have fully recovered.
