Caption: Liver disorder. Coloured scanning electron micrograph of a human liver cell (hepatocyte red- brown) affected by intrahepatic cholestasis. Liver cells secrete bile, a fluid used in the breakdown of fat, which is drained from the liver through the bile canaliculi (green centre). In intrahepatic cholestasis the smooth membrane surrounding the bile canaliculi is damaged and particles of bile (green spheres) enter the venous sinusoids, the blood vessels surrounding each hepatocyte. The typical symptom of this disorder is jaundice. Part of a macrophage (pale orange) is at top right. Magnification: x8500 at 6x7cm size.
