EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX CONTAINS PROTEIN FIBERS + GROUND SUBSTANCE. MATERIAL IN ECM DETERMINE'S CONNECTIVE TISSUE QUALITY
FIBROBLAST FOUND IN LOOSE AND DENSE CONNECTIVE TISSUE; SECRETE ECM OF TISSUE
CHONDROBLAST FOUND IN CARTILAGE
OSTEOBLASTS FOUND IN BONE
TYPES OF CONNECTIVE TISSUE CELLS INCLUDE EITHER: FIBROBLASTS, MACROPHAGES, PLASMA CELLS, MAST CELLS, ADIPOCYTES, WHITE BLOOD CELLS
COLLAGEN FIBERS VERY STRONG AND RESIST PULLING FORCES (TENSION); NOT STIFF, ALLOW FLEXIBILITY
ELASTIC FIBERS SMALLER THAN COLLAGEN; FORM FIBROUS NETWORK
RETICULAR FIBERS FORM A BRANCHING NETWORK; SUPPORT AND STRENGTH (FOUND IN LOOSE CONNECTIVE TISSUE)
LOOSE CONNECTIVE TISSUE AREOLAR CONNECTIVE TISSUE; LOOSELY ARRANGED; MORE ECM. ALL TYPES OF FIBERS. ALL TYPES OF CELLS

DENSE IRREGULAR CONNECTIVE TISSUE TIGHTLY PACKED, WOVEN MESH USUALLY IRREGULARLY ARRANGED
ELASTIC CONNECTIVE TISSUE PRIMARILY ELASTIC FIBERS
CARTILAGE (ALSO BONE QUALITIES) DENSE NETWORK OF COLLAGEN FIBERS AND ELASTIC FIBERS. MORE GEL-LIKE GROUND SUBST. MORE DURABLE; RESILIENCE.
CHONDROCYTES MATURE CELLS OF CHONDROBLASTS. OCCUR IN LACUNAE
PERICHONDRIUM COVERING OF DENSE IRREGULAR CONNECTIVE TISSUE AROUND CARTILAGE WHICH CONTAINS BLOOD VESSELS AND NERVES AND NEW CELLS
