Best Answer

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).

What are the three tissue subgroups of connective tissue?

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.

What kind of tissue is the iris made of?

loose aereolar connective tissue. this connective tissue is made up of 3 connective tissue fibres, collagen, elastic and reticular fibres. it contains fibroblast (most abundant cell type in connective tissue, which produces ground substance and fibres of connective tissue), macrophages, mast cells and plasma cells. its function is to hold and trap fluid, wrap and cushion organs and is important in inflammation.

What is a connectve 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.

How does loose connective tissue differ from dense connective tissue?

Loose Connective Tissue consists of a lot of ground substance and it has all 3 types of protein fibers. Dense Connective Tissue on the other hand has little ground substance, few cells, and although it has most protein fibers it mainly consists of collagen fibers.
