Caption: Adipose tissue. Coloured Transmission Electron Micrograph (TEM) of a section through the large fat cells (adipocytes) that make up adipose connective tissue. A large droplet of fat (yellow) makes up most of the cell volume. Cell nuclei are seen at upper centre (green & orange) with a thin layer of cytoplasm around the fat droplet. Adipocytes are one of the largest cell types in the human body, each cell being 100 to 120 microns in diameter. Adipose connective tissue forms a thick layer under the skin. It functions as an insulating layer and energy store. Magnification: x1,900 at 6x4.5cm size. Magnification; x2200 at 6x7cm size.
