Fallopian tube. Light micrograph of a section through a fallopian tube, or oviduct. The fallopian tubes connect the ovaries to the uterus. The central lumen is seen at left, lined with a mucosa (purple) that contains ciliated columnar epithelium and secretory cells. Surrounding this is a vascular layer with capillaries (red rings) and a layer of smooth muscle (pink). Magnification: x4 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
