Caption: Fat tissue, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Fat tissue (adipose tissue) is mainly comprised of lipid storing cells (adipocytes, large globular structures) surrounded by collagen fibres. The main role of adipose tissue is to store energy in the form of lipid droplets, although it also insulates and cushions the body. In humans, adipose tissue is found below the skin (subcutaneous fat) and also around internal organs (visceral fat). Magnification: x2000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
