Caption: Adipose tissue. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of adipose tissue. The tissue consists of adipocyte cells, whose lipid (fat) contents has been largely removed, leaving the cell membranes (brown). Several lipid droplets (red) remain. Adipose tissue forms an insulating layer under the skin and acts as an energy store; excess food is converted into fats and stored in the adipocytes. A narrow capillary blood vessel (pink, lower left) is also seen. Magnification unknown.
