A T Cell (Orange) approaching an antigen presenting cell (APC, Blue). The left two panels show two orientations of the cells coming into contact and forming a mature immunological synapse. The right two panels show the same two viewpoints of the T Cell (APC made invisible) during this interaction. Images were acquired every 1.3 sec over 430 time points. (Link)
