Adipose Connective Tissue; closely packed adipocytes (a dip = fat; cut = cell) plasma membranes are visible cytoplasm (including the nucleus) is pushed next to the plasma membrane by the fat
Connective tissue, right now may be thinking that this subject is very simple, and in all reality it is although some parts are complex and were difficult to learn at first. There are four differen…
