Caption: Fat tissue. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of adipose tissue, consisting of fat-storing cells (adipocytes, round) supported by connective tissue (brown). Adipocytes are one of the largest cell types in the human body, each cell being 100 to 120 microns in diameter. Almost the entire volume of each fat cell consists of a single lipid (fat or oil) droplet. Adipose tissue forms an insulating layer under the skin, storing energy in the form of fat, which is usually obtained from excess food. Magnification: x 90.
