An epithelial tissue that has many layers
filling between the cells
interstitial/ extracellular matrix
Most abundant tissue in the body
Where are connective tissues found?
throughout the body
What are connective tissues composed of?
Scattered cells with abundant intercellular material
What are the functions of connective tissues? (9)
bind structures, support, framework, fill spaces, store fat, produce blood cells, protects against infection, repairs tissue damage
produced by connective tissue cells and excreted to their exterior, separates living cells
what does the extracellular matrix consist of?
ground substances and fibers
composed of water and adhesion proteins
allowing connective tissue cells to attach themselves to the matrix fibers embedded in the ground substance
strands of collagen, elastin, or reticular protein
mixture of fibers and hard mineral deposits
protein fibers and ground substance
refers to cartilage
what are the 2 categories of connective tissues?
dense and loose
what do dense protein fiber matrix include?
regular and irregular
attachment for basement memberane
protein matrix with fat containing cells scattered throughout
