T regulatory cells (green with red nuclei) interact with antigen-presenting cells (magenta) in a tumor (blue). The Treg cell on top is activated (green fluorescence in the nucleus), while the one at the bottom is not (green fluorescence outside the nucleus). Activation of Treg cells promotes tumor growth.
