Caption: Pigment molecule, coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM). This is a molecule of a pigment protein called alpha-crustacyanin. This is found in the carapace (shell) of the common lobster (Homarus gammarus). It is a blue carotenoprotein. The molecule consists of eight subunits. These are linked to form the helical structure seen here. Magnification: x4,500,000 when printed 10cm wide.
