Rings of collagen and calcium phosphate. cardiac muscle – located only in the heart cartilage – most of the skeleton starts as cartilage that hardens into bone, connective tissue chondrocyte – cells in cartilage that make up a collagen matrix, receive oxygen by diffusion endoskeleton – internal supporting elements exoskeleton – hard encasement of the surface hydrostatic skeleton – fluid under pressure in a closed body compartment joint ligament – binds bone to bone at joints motor unit muscle fiber myofibril – accumulation of proteins, many of which are in each muscle fiber myosin myosin head – allows thick filaments to connect to thin filaments
