cells seperated by a large amount of cellular matrix EXCEPT BLOOD
most abundant cell type in ct proper
-fibers and ground substance of matrix
- structural support
-recoil of stretched tissues
Types of LCT Proper
underlies almost all epithelia and surrounds capillaries
-Ground Substance and Collagen
-reticular fibers and elastic fibers in the matrix
(surround fibroblast cells and adipose cells)
similar to areolar but lots more adipose cells
F** nutrient storage (increased)
-white fat abundant in hypodermis
-brown fat occurs in babies generating heat and heating blood
similar to areolar in structure but only fibers in matrix are reticular
-Forms networks of caverns that hold free blood cells
-Support and bind other tissues with its fibers
- Hold tissues fluid in its jelly like grounds substance
-Fight infection w/ its (+) blood-derived defense cells
----macrophages, plasma, neutrophils
-Store Nutrients in fat
-super thick collagen fibers
-resist pulling forces
similar to areolar but collagen is thicker and run whirly swirly
F** resisting tensions in different directions
all collagen fibers in matrix run in same direction
-separated by row of *fibroblasts, parallel to direction/ pull
-main component of ligaments
similar to areolar but more elastic fibers
-w/i certain ligaments
