Cholesterol crystals

Cholesterol. Light micrograph obtained with polarised light of crystals of cholesterol. It is a lipid (fatty substance) found in vertebrates and in foods from animal sources. It is largely found in the brain, spinal cord and the liver, the major site of cholesterol synthesis. It plays an important role in the synthesis of vitamin D and the formation of hormones and bile salts. The level of cholesterol in the blood is influenced by diet, heredity and metabolic disorders such as diabetes mellitus. A high level of cholesterol increases the risk of developing atherosclerosis and with it the risk of coronary artery disease or stroke. Magnification: x20 at 6x7cm size..

This print showcases the intricate beauty of cholesterol crystals, captured under polarised light. These crystals represent a lipid substance called cholesterol, which is commonly found in vertebrates and animal-based foods. While it can be found throughout the body, it is particularly abundant in the brain, spinal cord, and liver - where cholesterol synthesis takes place. Cholesterol serves crucial functions within our bodies. It plays a vital role in synthesizing vitamin D and contributes to the formation of hormones and bile salts. However, maintaining an optimal level of cholesterol is essential for overall health. Factors such as diet, heredity, and metabolic disorders like diabetes mellitus can influence blood cholesterol levels. Excessively high levels of cholesterol pose significant risks to our cardiovascular system. They increase the likelihood of developing atherosclerosis - a condition characterized by plaque buildup in arteries that restricts blood flow. This heightened risk subsequently leads to conditions like coronary artery disease or stroke. The magnified view provided by this photograph allows us to appreciate the complex structure of these cholesterol crystals at different sizes: x20 at 6x7cm size and x35 at 4x5 inch size. Science Photo Library has expertly captured this image with precision and clarity; offering us an opportunity to marvel at the microscopic world within our own bodies while reminding us of the importance of maintaining healthy lifestyle choices for optimal well-being.
