Adipose Tissue definition: Specialized connective tissue composed of fat cells (ADIPOCYTES). It is the site of stored FATS, usually in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES. In mammals, there are two types of adipose tissue, the WHITE FAT and the BROWN FAT. Their relative distributions vary in different species with most adipose tissue being white.
Adipose tissue definition: Dense irregular connective tissue, which predominantly consists of adipocytes.
adipose tissue definition: connective tissue composed of fat cells lodged in the meshes of areolar tissue.
Adipose tissue definition: Dense irregular connective tissue, which predominantly consists of adipocytes.
Adipose Tissue definition: A specialized form of connective tissue consisting primarily of adipocytes (fat cells), surrounded by a meshwork of collagen fibers.
Choristoma definition: A mass of histologically normal tissue present in an abnormal location.
Choristoma definition: Proliferation of normal tissue in an anatomic site in which this particular type of tissue is not normally present.
Connective Tissue definition: Tissue that supports and binds other tissues. It consists of CONNECTIVE TISSUE CELLS embedded in a large amount of EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX.
Connective tissue definition: Tissue which consists of fibroblasts, osteocytes or chondrocytes and intercellular matrix produced by these cells. Examples: bone (tissue), dense regular elastic tissue, areolar tissue, neuroglia, adipose tissue.
connective tissue definition: tissue that supports and binds other tissues; consists of connective tissue cells embedded in a large amount of extracellular matrix.
