Description Electron microscopy. Note the lace-like pattern of lumps of amorph elastin (X) that appears more electron-dense than the collagen fibers (C). At this high magnification cross-sectioned microfibrils (that contain among others fibrillin) are present in close association (*) with different areas of elastin. (1) Indicate extensions of elastoblast (or interstitial myofibroblast).
