Connective tissue is composed of collagen & elastin fibers and is made of the amino acids glycine, valine, alanine, arginine, proline and hydroxyproline therefore consuming a protein source that will supply the amino acids needed is. Areolar tissue (/ ə ˈ r iː ə l ər / or / ˌ ɛər i ˈ oʊ l ər, ˌ ær-/) is a common type of loose connective tissue (and the most widely distributed type of connective tissue in vertebrates. Loose connective tissue has relatively fewer cells and fibers per area than dense connective tissue, in which the cells and fibers are tightly packed dense connective tissue can be characterized as regular or irregular on the basis of fiber arrangement. Dense regular connective tissue consists of orderd and densely packed fibres and cells the fibres are loose and very elastic in nature they are secreted by the surrounding connective tissue cells.
Connective tissue is comprised of 2 major protein compounds, collagen and elastin collagen is the main component of connective tissue and is the cement that holds everything together elastin, just as the name suggests, has the capability to stretch and spring back into shape and as such is part of ligaments and skin. Connective tissue proper includes loose connective tissue and dense connective tissue both tissues have a variety of cell types and protein fibers suspended in a viscous ground substance both tissues have a variety of cell types and protein fibers suspended in a viscous ground substance. Study chapter 4 the tissue level of organization flashcards taken from chapter 4 of the book fundamentals of anatomy & physiology and dense connective tissue a. There are more than 200 heritable disorders of connective tissue, and they are related to problems in genes responsible for building connective tissues.
Protein chains assembled from amino acids, such as proline, lysine, are involved in connective tissue repair and wound healing • glucosamine sulfate. A&p ch 4 connective tissue highly vascular in some tissue, poorly vascular (dense connective) and sometimes avascular (cartilage) and contains sensory receptors. Dense connective tissue connective tissue is generally classified according to the density of its constituent fibers (loose or dense) and the orientation of those fibers (irregular or regular) accordingly, the connective tissue that we have been describing is considered loose because it has relatively few fibers loosely arranged. Dense connective tissue contains more collagen fibers than does loose connective tissue as a consequence, it displays greater resistance to stretching there are three major categories of dense connective tissue: regular, irregular, and elastic.
Fibrous connective tissue works as a dense layer of collagen fibers in order to bind your body parts together and protect it from injury three types of the dense fibrous tissue include ligaments, tendons and the sclera, or the protective white layer of your eyeball that surrounds the colorful iris. •dense connective tissue - concentrated collagen, few cells •cartilage - avascular homogeneous matrix of collagen and protein-polysaccharides with few cells. Proper connective tissue: areolar, adipose, reticular, white fibrous and yellow elastic tissue the matrix is soft, less rigid and shows varying degree of toughness accordingly the proper connective tissue have been divided into two types-loose and dense connective tissue. Dense connective tissue since the matrix of dense connective tissue is so rich in collagen fibers, the main type of cell found in this tissue is fibroblasts.
Dense connective tissue these tissues are characterized by an overwhelming preponderance of the fibrous component of the tissue, with a correspondingly smaller volume of ground substance, tissue fluid and cells. General connective tissue is either loose, or dense, depending on the arrangment of the fibres the cells sit in a matrix made up of glycoproteins, fibrous proteins and glycosoaminoglycans , which have been secreted by the fibroblasts, and the major component of the matrix, is in fact, water. Types connective tissue can be broadly subdivided into connective tissue proper, and special connective tissue connective tissue proper consists of loose connective tissue and dense connective tissue (which is further subdivided into dense regular and dense irregular connective tissues.
Dense connective tissue, is one of the types of connective tissue also referred to as dense fibrous tissue due to relative abundance of the collagen fibers it also contains fewer cells and less ground substance in comparison with the other type, loose connective tissue. Loose connective tissue is a category of secrete strong fibrous proteins and proteoglycans to distinguish from dense irregular connective tissue. The causes and symptoms of connective tissue disease caused by single-gene defects vary as a result of what protein is abnormally produced by that defective gene. Dense regular connective tissue - the tissue shown has a dense, regular arrangement of collagen fibers the cells present are fibroblasts not squamous epithelial cells 3 the structure enclosed by the brackets indicated in the electron micrograph is a.
