Image title:
Paneth cells in the small intestine 
Image explanation:
The images show Paneth cells in the small intestine. These cells play an important role in immune defense. In mice with Crohn’s-type inflammation, the Paneth cells produce less lysozyme, an important anti-microbial enzyme. Left: Healthy cells producing high levels of lysozyme (light green); right: Damaged Paneth cells producing low levels of lysozyme.
