ON THE COVER:
The famous
C57BL/6J lab mouse (top right)
is a workhorse of cell biology.

Laboratory. Immunofluorescence
staining of vimentin (top left)
and Heat shock protein 27 (lower

are evidence, says a Finnish
government radiation and
nuclear s afety lab, of biological
effects of cell phone radiation.

The infamous “Black Death”
plague bacteria,
Yersinia pestis
,
must survive inside the low-
temperature, high-calcium flea
(lower right) so that it can some
day infect high-temperature,
low-calcium human cells. See
