What is the typical biological function of the connective tissues? How is this function associated to the main features of its cells?

11 months ago

The typical function of the connective tissues is to fill empty spaces among other body tissues.

This function is related to the great capability of the cells of the connective tissue to secrete substances that constitute extracellular material, like collagen and elastic fibers, creating a significant spacing between these cells.

(There are other important biological features of the connective tissues, such as substance transportation, defense of the organism, etc.)
