ciliated epithelial cells

The ciliated epithelial cells generated in vitro from Cystic Fibrosis skin fibroblast-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) after mucociliary differentaition of airway progenitors on transwell. Red staining is acetylated tubulin indicative of ciliated cells. Blue is the DNA staining.
