The heart largely consists of fibres (green) of cardiac muscle (the myocardium) that contract to pump blood around the heart. This tissue sample includes intercalated discs (orange) and capillaries (purple). Cellular proteins are highlighted with fluorescent markers: g-actin (red), f-actin (green) and smooth muscle actin (blue).
