Three-dimensional Analysis of Human Pancreatic Islet
- Consecutive sections through an entire adult pancreatic islet labeled for insulin (red) and glucagon (green).
- Images show that insulin (red) and glucagon (green) stained cells are organized into continuous 3-D networks that span the entire islet.
- Sections at both ends show islet profiles with an apparent similar core-mantle structure to that of 40- to 60-μm–diameter islets.
- These consecutive images also reveal that vascular channels were in fact continuous ramified structures that were connected in places with the surrounding islet tissue (arrowheads).
- Image series is representative of 15 different pancreatic islets analyzed from one pancreas.
Scale bar, 50 μm.
