Caption: Breast tissue. Light micrograph of a section through a simple mammary gland, showing connective tissue (beige), lobules (purple, centre right and bottom centre), and a lactiferous duct (milk duct, white, centre and upper left). Each lobule is made up of groups of alveoli (purple, circular), which collect milk secreted by the cuboidal cells that line them. The milk drains into the lactiferous duct, which carries it to the nipple. Between 10 and 20 simple mammary glands combine to form a larger complex mammary gland (breast).
