Caption: Adipose tissue. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the oval adipocytes (fat cells) that make up adipose connective tissue. Some of the adipocytes have been sectioned. These cells mostly consist of lipid deposits. Adipocytes are one of the largest types of human cells. Adipose connective tissue forms a thick insulating layer under the skin which also acts as a reserve energy store. Magnification unknown.
