Caption: Adipose connective tissue composed mainly of adipocytes (fat cells), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Fat not used in metabolic processes is channelled towards adipocytes by way of small capillaries. Each adipocyte is occupied by a single lipid droplet primarily formed by triglycerides. Adipocytes are some of the largest cells in the human body. Adipose connective tissue forms a thick layer under the skin in certain body areas and it functions as an insulating layer and as a reserve energy source. Magnification: x800 when shortest axis printed at 25 millimetres.
