Caption: False colour transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through a human hepatocyte, a liver cell. Hepatocytes function in the storage of glycogen (metabolized from excess glucose) and processing of lipid. Glycogen is represented by numerous pink bodies. A vacuole containing triglyceride appears yellow/green; mitochondria are coloured gold. In addition to the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats, other important liver functions include: detoxification of waste products; reclamation of spent red cells and synthesis & secretion of bile and blood clotting agents. Magnification: x9000 at 35mm size.
