Example text

There are three basic types of fibers: collagen, elastin, and reticulin (Fig. 8). Reticulin is a very fine fiber, a kind of immature collagen that predominates in the embryo but is largely replaced by collagen in the adult. Elastin, as its name implies, is employed in areas such as the ear, skin, or particular ligaments where elasticity is required. Collagen, by far the most common protein in the body, predominates in the fascial net, and is readily seen - indeed, unavoidable - in any dissection or even any cut of meat.

Stretched, a muscle will attempt to recoil back to its resting length before giving up and adding more cells and sarcomeres to bridge the gap. Stretch fascia quickly and it will tear (the most frequent form of connective tissue injury). If the stretch is applied slowly enough, it will deform plastically: it will change its length and retain that change. Slowly stretch a plastic carrier bag to see this kind of plasticity modeled: the bag will stretch, and when you let go, the stretched area will remain, it will not recoil.

The neural net carries encoded information, usually in a Fig. 27 Each of the major body communicating networks is made up of tubular subunits. The nerves are unicellular tubes, the capillaries are multicellular tubes, and the tubes of the collagen fibers are cell products, woven by the fibroblasts.
