Extracellular matrix

Postby merge » Sat Mar 08, 2008 12:43 pm

The epithelial cells is the outer most surface
basal lamina also known as the basement membrane (extracellular matrix) layer
Support tissue is the next layer

Is this the right order? The basal lamina is the basement membrane? What are support tissue?

Another Question:

In animal cells,

Cell membrane layer (outer most layer)
then the glycocalyx ( middle layer)
then the matrix

Is this the right order? Or just give your own explanation if my information.


Just tell where I am wrong?

glycocalix is on the exterior of the cellular membrane
