    Hey

    Does anyone have/know any good electron micrographs/diagrams of lung/kidney/pancreas cells? We're doing a histology practical tomorrow where we make up perm. diseased tissue samples and then identify which slide has which tissue. I don't really know what lung/kidney/pancreas cells really look like and I can't find much from googling.

    Spoiler:

    I suspect that the lung sample will have a lot of air sacs and blood vessles about, dunno about the kidney and the pancreas will have quite a few secetory vesicles cos of the insulin/glucagon production. However, this could be a lot of crap. We'll also have skeletal muscle (that will have loads of actin fillaments/mitochondria), liver tissue (will have loads of mitochondria), brain tissue (will have mylenated axons, cell body, dendrites etc) and small intestine tissue (will have the lovely obvious microvillius lol)


    Sorry if that's a rambling mess, I've got loads to do tonight :o:

    Google book search? diagrams will be easier to fing in google images.I tried a couple of book searches on google books but haven t found any,the only ones there are of organelles/small parts in cells...
    Hope that helps
    Otherwise you could ask your teacher.

    BINGO!!
    Saw these in my bio book & thought of you,pancreas cells
    see p.109 & 111
    can t attach a copy of the page,will pm you a link.

    Are you doing Edexcel AS Bio by any chance?

    Electron micrograph of a mitochondrion in a section from bat pancreas.

    You don t have any electron microscopy pics showing structure of eukaryotic cell,by any chance.Preferably labeled.

    Eukaryotic plant cell - the things that look like the raisins are chloroplasts, the big gooey bit in the middle and top right is the vacuole, the big flower looking bit is the nucleus and you can see the cell wall around the edges.


    Another eukaryotic plant cell - PM = plasma membrane; M = mitochondria; N = nucleus; V = vacuole; CW = cell wall.

    http://www.visualsunlimited.com/image/I00003Xcd4pw.Bc00
    Eukaryotic animal cell (white blood cell) - Obviously the big, round dark circle in the middle is the nucleus (full of heterochromatin cos it's dark), mitochondria everywhere, the golgi apparatus and vesicles can be seen in the middle/bottom left, large storage vacoules everywhere, dark-round lyososomes and ribosomes in the cytosol. Couldn't see the R/SER

    Hope this helps. And nope, I'm doing a HNC in Applied Sciences (SQA HNC != BTEC HNC, btw)
