This image is of brown adipose tissue (BAT) in a Rdh10 KO high fat diet mouse model. BAT was sectioned with the Leica CM3050 Cryostat, stained with picrosirius red and imaged using polarized light microscopy on the Zeiss AxioImager M1 to visualize type 1 collagen fibers in orange to red and type 3 collagen fibers in yellow to green.
