The matrix of a connective tissue consists of _____.Ground substance and fibers
extracellular matrix, which surrounds connective tissue cells, consists of a variety of different protein fibers and a ground substance. The type of fibers and components of the ground substance varies depending on the tissue type. Generally, the ground substance consists ofpolysaccharides and proteins, which are secreted by the connective tissue cells. The ground substance can range from liquid (blood and lymph) to semi-solid (cartilage) to solid (bone).

Which of the following types of connective tissue stores triglycerides, prevents heat loss, and provides cushioning and support for internal organs?Adipose tissue
what type of connective tissue functions to store triglycerides, protect internal organs, and insulate against heat loss.Adipose tissue
