About this work


Transmission electron micrograph showing a transverse section through a nerve fibre in the corneal stroma. The cell contains a nucleus, mitochondria and some rough endoplasmic reticulum. The nerve is passing through the layers of stromal lamellae - layers of collagen fibrils lying across each other at different angles thus appearing as dots or lines depending on the plane of section. The field is approximately 11 microns across. Biomedical Image Awards 1999.
