Liver tissue. Fluorescence deconvolution micrograph of a section through liver tissue. This tissue sample shows a cross-section through a portal triad, a collection of vessels that includes the hepatic artery (small, top), the hepatic portal vein (large, centre), and the bile duct (left). The liver stores nutrients and helps to clean the blood of toxins and other waste products. Cellular proteins are highlighted with fluorescent markers: g-actin (red), f-actin (green) and smooth muscle actin (blue).
