Caption: False-colour transmission electron micrograph showing fibrils of collagen (orange), the principal component of white connective tissue. The fibrils have been shadowed with a heavy metal to show their banded structure. Collagen is a tough fibrous protein, which is found in the skin, cartilage, bone, ligaments & tendons. It is relatively inelastic, but has a high tensile strength. Magnification x14,400 at 6x4.5cm size.
