Connective tissue

Connective tissue

Originating from the embryonic mesoderm, connective tissue arises and forms part of the organism as supportive tissue containing plenty of extracellular components. It supports and connects many different tissues in the body. All connective tissue is made of cells, fibers, and extracellular matrices. In the turkey leg depicted, one is able to see the muscle (containing elastic fibers and connective tissue) that allows the turkey to walk.
