About the cover image
Paneth cells are specialized intestinal epithelial cells that reside in the base of crypts within the small intestine. They are readily identified by their highly eosinophilic granules, as shown here using a phloxine-tartrazine stain. Goblet cells are co-visualized using Alcian Blue. Photo credit: Christopher Dekaney, PhD.
