Caption

Light microscopy of a longitudinal section of a ligament. The wave-like pattern is the relaxed state of collagen fibres that make up to 90% or more of the ligament. The magenta stained cells are the fibroblasts that produce the collagen. When under load the collagen is stretched and resists further deformation. Magnification x150 when printed at 10 cm.
