Caption: Aorta. Fluorescence deconvolution micrograph of a section of aorta showing calcium-sensing receptors (red), connective tissue (green) and fibroblast nuclei (blue). Fibroblasts are the most common cells of connective tissue in animals. Calcium-sensing receptors in the aorta monitor extracellular levels of calcium in the blood and act, via a feedback mechanism to the parathyroid gland, to regulate these levels. Magnification: x600 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
