Connective Tissue

Connective tissue is made up of a small fraction of cells and a majority of extracellular substance which keeps the cells separated. The two types of cells found in connective tissue include fibrocytes or fibroblasts and fat cells, which are fixed cells. Additionally, the extracellular substance separating the cells is made up of three types of fibers, including collagen fibers, reticular fibers and elastic fibers. Cartilage is a type of supporting connective tissue. Cartilage is a dense connective tissue, consisting of the chondrocyte cells. Cartilage connective tissue includes hyaline cartilage, fibrocartilage and elastic cartilage.

An Atlas of Histology pp Cite as. Connective tissue is one of the four basic tissues of the body, forming a diverse group of structures including circulating blood, soft tissue, and hard bone. All connective tissues have a common origin from mesenchyme and are composed of separated cells and abundant intercellular substance , or matrix. The latter is composed of fibers , amorphous ground substance , and tissue fluid. Connective tissues are found throughout the body and in many different forms with diverse functions, such as connection, defense, support, storage, transport, metabolism, and repair following injury.

Describe the structural characteristics of the various connective tissues and how these characteristics enable their functions. Connective tissues perform many functions in the body, most importantly, they support and connect other tissues: from the connective tissue sheath that surrounds a muscle, to the tendons that attach muscles to bones, and to the skeleton that supports the positions of the body. Protection is another major function of connective tissue, in the form of fibrous capsules and bones that protect delicate organs. Specialized cells in connective tissue defend the body from microorganisms that enter the body. Transport of gases, nutrients, waste, and chemical messengers is ensured by specialized fluid connective tissues, such as blood and lymph. Adipose cells store surplus energy in the form of fat and contribute to the thermal insulation of the body. All connective tissues derive from the mesodermal layer of the embryo see Figure 4.

Connective tissue provides a matrix that supports and physically connects other tissues and cells together to form the organs of the body. The interstitial fluid of connective tissue gives metabolic support to cells as the medium for diffusion of nutrients and waste products. Unlike the other tissue types epithelium, muscle, and nerve , which consist mainly of cells, the major constituent of connective tissue is the extracellular matrix ECM. Extracellular matrices consist of different combinations of protein fibers collagen and elastic fibers and ground substance. Ground substance is a complex of anionic, hydrophilic proteoglycans, glycosaminoglycans GAGs , and multiadhesive glycoproteins laminin, fibronectin, and others.

Connective tissue CT is a one of the four main classes of tissues. Although it is the most abundant and widely distributed of the primary tissues, the amount of connective tissue in a particular organ varies. Like to the timber framing of a house, the connective tissue provides structure and support throughout the body. Together the ground substance and fibers make up the extracellular matrix. The composition of these three elements vary tremendously from one organ to the other.

Connective Tissue

Connective tissue fills the spaces between organs and tissues, and provides structural and metabolic support for other tissues and organs. Connective tissue is made up of cells and extracellular matrix. The extracellular matrix is made up of fibres in a protein and polysaccharide matrix, secreted and organised by cells in the extracellular matrix. Variations in the composition of the extracellular matrix, determines the properties of the connective tissue.

Танкадо прошел проверку на полиграф-машине и пережил пять недель интенсивного психологического тестирования. И с успехом его выдержал. Ненависть в его сердце уступила место преданности Будде. Еще через четыре месяца Энсей Танкадо приступил к работе в Отделении криптографии Агентства национальной безопасности США.

Сплошная мистификация. Блестящий замысел. Выходит, Стратмор был зрителем теннисного матча, следящим за мячом лишь на одной половине корта. Поскольку мяч возвращался, он решил, что с другой стороны находится второй игрок. Но Танкадо бил мячом об стенку.

Этот день должен был стать днем его славы, его piece de resistance, итогом всей его жизни - днем открытия черного хода во всемирный стандарт криптографии. А вместо этого он заразил вирусом главный банк данных Агентства национальной безопасности. И этот вирус уже невозможно остановить - разве что вырубить электроэнергию и тем самым стереть миллиарды бит ценнейшей информации. Спасти ситуацию может только кольцо, и если Дэвид до сих пор его не нашел… - Мы должны выключить ТРАНСТЕКСТ! - Сьюзан решила взять дело в свои руки.  - Я спущусь вниз, в подсобное помещение, и выключу рубильник. Стратмор медленно повернулся.

Нуматек - богатая фирма, наиболее вероятный победитель аукциона. Ни у кого не вызовет подозрений, если ключ попадет именно к. И что особенно удачно - эту компанию меньше всего можно было заподозрить в том, что она состоит в сговоре с американским правительством.

    The different types of collagens are usually found in different tissues and organs. For example, type I collagen is the strongest and is found in bone, ligament, skin,​.
