Object Name # of Images Description
I band 2 The light band in striated muscle. Contains thin filaments.
I bands 1 The light bands in striated muscle. Contain thin filaments.
Infoldings between cells 1 Infoldings of the lateral cell membranes.
Infoldings of membranes 1 Infoldings of the lateral cell membranes.
Inner dental epithelium 1 These epithelial cells differentiate to ameloblasts.
Inner hair cell 1 These are the main sensory receptor cells responsible for hearing. We have 3,500 in each ear.
Inner hair cell giant microvill 1 Large microvilli having a special role in the process of hearing.
Inner hair cell row 1 The sensory cells of cochlea are arranged in rows.
Inner mitochondrial membrane 1 The electron transport chain is embedded in the inner membrane, and the spheres representing ATP synthase are attached to its inner surface. The inner membrane provides the major permeability barrier in mitochondria.
Inner plexiform layer 1 The layer within the retina where the axons of the bipolar cells synapse with the dendrites of the ganglion cells.
Inner plexiform layer 1 The layer within the retina where the axons of the bipolar cells synapse with the dendrites of the ganglion cells.
Insulin granules 1 Granules within the beta cells of the Islets of Langerhans containing co-crystals of insulin and C-peptide. The contents are released from the cell in response to elevated blood glucose or another cause.
Insulin producing cells 1 Cells (beta) of the Islets of Langerhans containing co-crystals of insulin and C-peptide. The contents are released from the cell in response to elevated blood glucose or another cause.
Interalveolar wall 2 Wall between two alveoli. Composed of capillaries and two layers of type I pneumonocytes and their basal laminae.

Intercalated discs 1 In cardiac muscle these are the sites of end-to-end attachments of individual muscle cells.
Intercalated discs 3 In cardiac muscle these are the sites of end-to-end attachments of individual muscle cells.
Intercalated duct 1 In exocrine glands this is the smallest duct leading from the secretory units.
Intercalated duct 1 In exocrine glands this is the smallest duct leading from the secretory units.
Intercellular space 1 Space between two cells.
Interlobular artery 1 Gives rise to the afferent arterioles in kidney cortex. Any artery between lobules of a gland.
Interlobular artery lumen 1 (Self-explanatory)
Interlobular duct 1 Third-order duct in an exocrine gland. (The first two are intercalated and secretory, respectively.) Usually occurs between the lobules.
Intermediate lobe (cysts) 1 In adult humans the intermediate lobe of the hypophysis is rudimentary.
Intermediate lobe with cysts 1 In adult humans the intermediate lobe of the hypophysis is rudimentary.
Intermembranous space 1 Space between the outer and inner membranes of the mitochondrion.
Internal circular lamina 1 The smooth lamella of the inner surface of the bone. Faces the bone marrow.
Internal elastic lamina 1 Border between intima and media in a muscular artery.
Internal elastic lamina 1 Border between intima and media in a muscular artery.

Interstitial gland 1 May develop from atretifying follicles. Probably produces androgens in the ovary.

Interstitial gland 1 May develop from atretifying follicles. Probably produces androgens in the ovary.
Interstitial system lamellae 1 These are leftovers from previously existing Haversian systems (osteons).
Interstitium 1 Spaces within a tissue or organ. Often composed of connective tissue.
Interstitium 2 Spaces within a tissue or organ. Often composed of connective tissue.
Intima 3 The innermost layer of blood vessels.
Intima 3 The innermost layer of blood vessels.
Intima 5 The innermost layer of blood vessels.
Intima and media 1 In pulmonary veins and vena cava the media is not well developed and seems to fuse with the intima. The adventitia is the thickest layer of these veins.

Intracellular canaliculus, micr 1
Intracellular mucus 1 The mucus secreted by the surface epithelial cells is stored inside the cell prior to secretion.

Intramembranous bone 1 In developing long bones the first (intramembranous) bone is formed around the cartilage model in a fashion suggestive of a collar.
Intramembranous bone collar 1 In developing long bones the first (intramembranous) bone is formed around the cartilage model in a fashion suggestive of a collar.
Intramembranous bone collar 1 In developing long bones the first (intramembranous) bone is formed around the cartilage model in a fashion suggestive of a collar.
Iris 1 Disk-like structure with a hole in the center constituting the pupil. Restricts light available to the retina.
Iris (displaced) 1 In rodents the lens is huge and breaks down during fixation. It tends to displace other structures.
Islet of Langerhans 1 An island (geographic) is a body of land surrounded by water. Islets (small islands) are one tissue type (endocrine) surrounded by another (exocrine). The islets produce polypeptide hormones, notably insulin and glucagon.
