Healthy human tendon


Light micrograph of a section through a healthy human tendon. A tendon is an inelastic connective tissue that attaches muscle to bone. Cross sections of fiber bundles containing a connective protein called collagen can be seen (pink). These collagenous fibers are produced by cells known as fibroblasts. The white areas are spaces between the bundles.
