Fibroblast Cells

By Kayci and Bailey

Function

The main function of fibroblasts is to maintain the structural integrity of connective tissues by continuously secreting precursors of the extracellular matrix. Fibroblasts secrete the precursors of all the components of the extracellular matrix, primarily the ground substance and a variety of fibers.

Organelles

Collagen-Collagen is the main structural protein of the various connective tissues in animals. As the main component of connective tissue, it is the most abundant protein in mammals

Stroma- the connective, functionally supportive framework of a biological cell, tissue, or organ

Nucleus- the central and most important part of an object, movement, or group, forming the basis for its activity and growth.

How do these organelles contribute to the cell?

The nucleus is important to the cells because it brings life to the cell, Collagen is important because ribosomes synthesize proteins which is what collagen is made of, Stroma brings shape to the cells.

FIbroblasts create what kind of tissue?

A fibroblast is a type of cell the synthesizes the extra cellular matrix and collagen the structural framework (stroma) and creates animal tissue and heals wounds. Most common cells of connective tissue in animals

how does the tissue help the cells work

It helps the body move and gain strength.
