Caption: Tendon. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a freeze-fractured tendon. The fracture plane has shown the parallel alignment of the many collagen fibres. This structure produces a tissue that is flexible, but remains inelastic and able to resist pulling forces. A tendon joins a muscle to a bone. Magnification unknown.
