bacteria.e.Adipocyte: fat cells that store triglycerides.f.leukocytes (white blood cell): gather at sites of infection when not in thebloodstream, other types migrate to the sites of parasitic invasions andallergic responses.III.connective tissue extracellular matrix: unique to certain types of connectivetissueIV.ground substance: the component of a connective tissue between cells andfibers. It supports cells, binds them together, stores water and provides amedium for exchanging substances between blood and cells.V.Fibers: embedded in the extracellular matrix between cellsa.collagen fiber: very strong and resist pulling forces, but are not stiff,allow flexibilityb.elastic fiber; elasticity: branch and join together to form a fibrousnetwork. Contain the protein elastin, surrounded by fibrillin, which addelasticity and strength. Can stretch up to 150% of their relaxed lengthand still return to original shape, a property calledelasticity.c.reticular fiber; stroma: consist of collagen arranged in fine bundles witha coating of glycoprotein, provide support in the walls of blood vessels,sometimes form a network around cells in some tissues. Plentiful inreticular connective tissue, which forms the stroma: supportingframework of many soft organs.7.Describe the structure, function and location of each of the types of connective tissue listedbelow.8.mature connective tissues: brief descriptions, locations and functions
