composed of protein collagen and provide flexibility in connective tissues
most common cell type in connective tissues; produces fibers and matrix
canals which lie at right angles to the long axis of the bone, extending outward from the central canal

interior of flat, short, and irregular dones and in the epiphyses of long bones
cells in cartilage
raised areas on the surface of bones for ligamentous attachment
