A type of cell found in developing or repairing tissues eg. the skin.
Skin cells that produce collagen.
Cells of connective tissue proper that are responsible for the production of extracellular fibers and the secretion of the organic compounds of the extracellular matrix.
Fibroblasts are the connective tissue cells of the body. They produce long strands of proteins that act as fibers in tissues. In the skin they produce collagen, reticulin and other elastic fibers. At the base of the hair follicle fibroblasts may help to preserve the 3-dimensional conformation of the dermal papilla.
A cell that is always present in connective tissue and active in making an secreting collagen.
immature form of the fibrocytes
Cells that give rise to connective tissue.
cells in the body that produce collagen.
Connective tissue cells which secrete an extracellular matrix rich in collagen and other macromolecules.
An undifferentiated cell in the connective tissue that can migrate to the site of an injury and undergo alterations necessary to repair certain types of tissues.
A cell found in connective tissue associated with healing wounds. Used extensively in laboratory testing.
A connective tissue cell.
The most common connective tissue cells, forming the fibrous tissues in the body, the tendons, and aponeuroses, supporting and binding tissues of all sorts. They modify into chrondroblasts, collagenblasts, and osteoblasts. They are the only cells found in tendons. They synthesize matrix materials and are considered to be secretory; assist in wound-healing. Also called fibrocytes and desmocytes.
Cells in the dermis that lie among collagen fibers and synthesize collagen, elastin and the Extracellular matrix.
cells that are the precursors of bone, collagen, and other connective tissue cells, commonly known as the healing cells.
a type of cell found in connective tissue. Involved in the production of collagen and elastin fibres, and of the connective tissue itself
cells present in connective tissue that form collagen and elastin
Body cells that develop into bone, cartilage and collagen cells.
a cell which develops connective tissue
irregularly shaped, branching cells distributed throughout vertebrate connective tissue.
Fibroblasts are cells found in the dermis that produce collagen, elastin, ground substance and fibronectin (a glycoprotein).
Cells within the the extracellular matrix that produce new collagen molecules when stimulated.
