xiii. Cell Surface a. Cell walls (e.g. plants) Fibrous components: -big, long strands of cellulose (polysacch.) -cross filaments (polysacch.) -gelatinous polysaccharides (pectin) -2 o wall of some species very tough, e.g. lignin in woody tissue b. Extra cellular matrix in animals Fibrous components -protein fibers - collagen -gelatinous mix of polysaccharides -more pliable than cell walls (many proteins from rER)
