Total body water is divided between: Intracellular compartments (~67%) Extracellular compartments (~33%) 20% as vascular fluid (blood plasma) 80% as interstitial fluid (non-vascular tissue fluid that resides within the extracellular matrix) Wells/VPHY3100/Fall08 Extracellular & intracellular compartments FIGURE 14.8 The extracellular environment The extracellular environment includes everything that lies outside of cells The ECM, or extracellular matrix: Gel-like hydrated material Ground substance Glycoproteins (such as integrins) Proteoglycans Protein fibers Collagen Elastin Selective permeability of cell membranes Simple diffusion Carrier- mediated transport Lodish et al., Molecular Cell Biology, 5th Ed.
