What are the three characteristics of connective tissue?
Rich supply of blood vessels, composed of many types of cells and has a great deal of noncellular, nonliving material (matrix) between the cells of connective tissue.
There are many different types of connective tissue, each with their own specific characteristics, however, three general characteristics are: Connective tissue is well vascularized (has a good supply of veins and arteries and therefore good supply of oxygen and nutrients). They recover from injury well due to being able to reproduce quickly. They have a lot of space between cells (extracellular matrix).
Three primary characteristics of connective tissue have been described as: Have a rich supply of blood vessels. Composed of many types of cells. Great deal of noncellular, nonliving material (matrix) between the cells of connective tissue. General characteristics of connective tissue : Inter-cellular material predominates in most connective tissues and determines their physical characteristics: consist of fluid , gel or solid matrix , with or without fibers ( collage nous , reticular and elastic )…
Technically they are the same. Fibrous connective tissue is basically any kind of connective tissue different than adipose and areolar. The fibrous connective tissue has more fibroblast and collagen fiber (a characteristic of dense connective tissue) but no much of elastic fibers (which is the histological difference with cartilage). Of course, we have to exclude blood, lymph and bones from the fibrous tissues because they are specialized connective tissue and have totally different characteristics than…
General characteristics of connective tissue : Inter cellular material predominates in most connective tissues and determines their physical characteristic : consist of fluid , gel or solid matrix , with or without fibers ( collage nous , reticular and elastic ) . It connects muscles to muscles , muscles to bones and bone to bones.
Epithelial, muscle, and nervous. Disagree- the 3 subgroups are: loose, dense, and connective tissue with special properties. Subgroups within dense are: dense irregular, in which the extracellular fibers are interwoven in disordered fashion, and dense irregular, in which the extracellular fibers are in parallel bundles. Subgroups in the special properties connective tissue are named to indicate the identifying feature, such as mucous connective tissue, elastic connective tissue or reticular connective tissue.
Connective tissue, as it names suggests, has a 'connective' function. It supports and binds tissues in the body. There are three types of connective tissue. 1. Loose - most common. Collagen, elastic, reticular fibres. 2. Dense (or fibrous) - tendons and ligaments 3. Specialised - e.g. adipose (fat) tissue is a type of specialised loose connective tissue.
