Loose Connective Tissue. Formed and Amorphous Components of the Intercellular Substance
As previously mentioned, fibroblasts are above all protein-synthesizing cells. They form four kinds of protein-containing macromolecule:
Microfibrillar proteins of elastic fibers and elastin
Structural glycoproteins (fibronectin and laminin)
