Immunofluorescence micrograph of a late-stage embryonic mouse aorta stained for elastin (green) and endothelial cells (red). The media (M) contains dense layers of elastin, which provide elasticity for the artery during the pulsatile cardiac cycle. L = lumen, I = intima, M = media, Ad = adventitia.
