Caption: Basophil. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through a basophil white blood cell. The nucleus, which stores the cell's genetic information, is brown. Basophils are cells of the body's immune system, involved in allergic and inflammatory reactions. They secrete the chemicals heparin and histamine, which are stored in granules (dark purple) in the cell's cytoplasm. Basophils are the smallest and least common of the white blood cells. Magnification: x10,000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
