The connective tissue or supporting framework of an organ; as, the stroma of the kidney.
The spongy, colorless framework of a red blood corpuscle or other cell.
A layer or mass of cellular tissue, especially that part of the thallus of certain fungi which incloses the perithecia.
The supporting connective tissue of an organ.
Connective tissue that is made up of cells, such as fibroblasts, and matrix, such as collagen.
inner tissue, especially underlying a limiting tissue.
The soluble, aqueous phase within the chloroplast, containing water soluble enzymes such as those of the Calvin Benson cycle. The site of the dark reaction of photosynthesis.
Greek = bed or mattress, deep to the covers; hence, the supporting framework of an organ, as distinct from its special parenchyma.
The connective tissue that provides the framework of an organ or other anatomical structure rather than carrying out its function.
the supportive tissue of an organ, as opposed to the functioning tissue.
The supporting tissue around or beneath an epithelium. The skin is an epithelium supported by the fibrous fatty stroma beneath it.
The structural elements or framework of an organ, as distinguished from its functional components or parenchyma
G. = a cover, table-cloth, bedding; strictly, an incorrect term for the internal supporting frame-work of a tissue, or organ, as opposed to its parenchyma.
the tissue that forms the ground substance, foundation, or framework of an organ, as opposed to its functional parts
Fungal tissue mass of pseudoparenchyma in or on which the reproductive structures (perithecia) are formed in some sac fungi, e. g. Dead Man's Fingers.
The fluid contents of an organelle, such as a chloroplast.
(1) The connective tissue in which a glandular or other epithelium is embedded. (2) The large interior space of a chloroplast, containing enzymes that incorporate CO into sugars.
The non-functional part of a tissue that holds it together
is the thick, middle layer of cells in the cornea.
The thick middle substance of the cornea. It is made mostly of collagen.
the dense colorless framework of a chloroplast
a compact mass of mycelium or mycelium with host tissue, on or in which sporulating structures may be produced
The nonmalignant host cells and extracellular matrix in which a tumor grows.
the supporting framework of an organ typically consisting of connective tissue.
A general term for supporting or central tissue of the body. See corneal stroma.
The middle of the cornea composed of keratoytes and collagen tissue to which laser is applied in LASIK to give a predictable effect and fast unaided visual recovery time.
The central substance of the cornea that is treated with the excimer laser during refractive surgery
the tissue that makes up the major part of the cornea, between the epithelium and the endothelium
The fluid of the chloroplast surrounding the thylakoid membrane; involved in the synthesis of organic molecules from carbon dioxide and water.
tissue that forms the ground substance or structural-supportive matrix of an organ as distinguished from functional or parenchymal cells of the organ.
The cornea's middle layer.
The spongy protoplasmic framework of some cells (as a red blood cell).
The matrix surrounding the grana in the inner membrane of chloroplasts. The area between membranes ( thylakoids, grana) inside the chloroplast. PICTURE
Supporting tissue or matrix of an organ, as distinguished from its functional element, or parenchyma.
The tissue forming the foundation and framework of an organ that supports the functioning cells.
The middle layer of the cornea; it consists of lamellae (collagen) and cells, and makes up most of the cornea. The stroma is the primary portion of the cornea treated during refractive surgery. Go to Top
a mass or matrix of vegetative hyphae, with or without tissue of the host or substrate, sometimes sclerotium-like in form, in or on which spores are produced.
supporting fibrous framework of tissue
The middle tissue layer of the cornea, comprising about 90 percent of corneal thickness.
fungal tissue which is not itself reproductive, but may bear epoductive structures such as conidia and perithecia.
the supporting tissue or matrix of an organ
Thickest part of the cornea (450-600 microns - approximately .5 millimeters). Between Bowman's membrane and Decemet's membrane.
(pl. stromata): Compact mass of mycelium (with or without host tissue) that supports fruiting bodies. (2)
The connective tissue framework of an organ; distinguished from the functional cells (parenchyma) of that organ.
the connective tissue inside an organ, within which other structures are embedded
The region inside the chloroplast, outside the grana, where the Calvin-Benson cycle of photosynthesis takes place.
the middle, thickest layer of tissue in the cornea.
part of the chloroplasts in plant cells, located within the inner membrane of chloroplasts, between the grana.
The supporting tissue in an organ, i.e the blood vessels, connective tissue, nerves, etc.
A compact mass of vegetative tissue, sometimes intermixed with host tissue, often bearing sporocarps either within or upon its surface. (Pl. stromata.) ( 15)
In animal tissue, stroma refers to the connective, non-functional supportive framework of a biological cell, tissue, or organ.
