CARTILAGE (Support Tissues)
A Coggle Diagram about ECM (Growth, Mainly hydrated gel = high degree of turgor. , Collagen fibres present to limit swelling/hydration of gel. , Avascular. Chondrocytes rely on diffusion across gel for metabolic support. and Fibre composition of matrix varies with cartilage type.), TYPES (HYALINE, FIBROCARTILAGE and ELATIC CARTILAGE), CELLS (CHONDROBLASTS and CHONDROCYTES) and Collagen fibres in ECM not seen in routine staining - same refractive property as ground substance. Elastic fibres too thin.
