Describe loose CT and give some examples of where you may find some.
- Supports structures that are normally under low pressure and low friction forces
- Flexible tissue, well vascularized, not very resistant to tensile forces
- Contains mainly fibroblasts and collagen, with lesser amounts of elastic and reticular fibers
- Very common and found in many tissues
EX: epithelium, endomysium, endoneurium, dermis, lining of peritoneal and pleural cavities, surrounding glands, blood vessels, and mucous membranes
