Adipose Tissue

This histology slide shows adipose tissue surrounding the ureter. The adipocytes are shaped like a signet ring. The nucleus is pushed to the periphery of the cell. The staining process leaches the fat out of the cells, so these are just the skeleton of the cell. Some smooth muscle from the ureter is visible in this section as well.
