Human skin showing hair follicles, LM

Hairy skin. Light micrograph of a thick section of human skin, showing three central hair follicles. The outer layer of the skin, the epidermis, is the thin, purple band, supported by the deeper, yellow, dermis. Beneath is the subcutaneous layer of connective tissue & fat. The epidermis grows down to form the lining of the hair shaft or follicle. The hair is rooted in an enlarged hair bulb, where actively dividing cells make the hair grow. Associated with the follicle is smooth muscle, to pull the hair erect in cold or fear, and sebaceous glands that secrete oily sebum. The latter are the orange globules along the follicles. Magnification: x25 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.

Virus particles and bacteria, SEM

Vaccinia virus particles and bacteria. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of vaccinia virus particles (green). Unlike most viruses, vaccinia replicates in the cells cytoplasm, rather than the nucleus. Vaccinia belongs to the orthopoxvirus group. It causes cowpox, a disease of cattle and humans that produces skin lesions. It was first used by Jenner in 1796 to vaccinate against smallpox, a related but more deadly human disease. There are approximately ten times as many bacterial cells in the human flora as there are human cells in the body, with the largest number of the human flora being in the gut flora, and a large number on the skin. Magnification: x12000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.

Spinal cord, LM

Spinal cord. Light micrograph (LM) of a cross-section through the human spinal cord in the lumbar region. The spinal cord consists of a butterfly-shaped core (dark blue) known as grey matter, which consists of nerve cells. Surrounding the grey matter is a larger region of white matter, made up of myelinated nerve fibre bundles or tracts. It is the white matter which is largely responsible for transmitting impulses. The spinal cord is wrapped in three layers of membrane called the meninges (outer edge). The cord extends from the stem of the brain to vertebrae of the lower back; 31 pairs of nerves arise along its length (visible in the space between the cord and the meninges), carrying information to and from the brain and body. Magnification: x20 at 10 cm wide.
