Fat tissue. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of adipose tissue, consisting of fat-storing cells (adipocytes, brown) supported by connective tissue. Almost the entire volume of each fat cell consists of a single lipid (fat or oil) droplet. Adipose tissue forms an insulating layer under the skin, storing energy in the form of fat created from excess food. Magnification: x260 at 6x7cm size.
