Neutrophils migrate through an Aspergillus-infected lung slice.

A Lys-EGFP mouse was infected with swollen A. fumigatus conidia and 7 h later the lung was prepared as described in movie 3. The sequence shows several neutrophils (green) migrating within lung tissue (blue). Red staining is from the DNA-specific dye Sytox Orange showing cell nuclei cut open by the preparation. Please note the active motility of cells within the tissue. Indicated is a scale bar and real time in minutes.
