Extracellular "Matrix"

Post by reyrey389 » Tue Nov 22, 2011 2:56 am

I know matrix basically means the nonliving external parts of cells with fibers, proteins, carbs, etc.... but is there anything else one can add to the definition of "matrix"


Also, how does the matrix of bone, differ from the matrix of blood?
i know bone has a hard matrix with minerals, where as blood has a matrix with cells (rbc,wbc, platelet)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
