A brain cell would likewise use a small percentage of the DNA information, but parts of the information which it uses would be different from that used by the liver cell. a. Components o/the nucleus Structurally, the shape of the nucleus is variable though usually it is round and about 2 ,um in diameter. The nucleus has a double membrane called the nuclear membrane which separates the nucleus from the cytoplasm. Within the nuclear membrane is a clear fluid area called the nuclear sap; within the nuclear sap is chromatin.

Many other cells besides fibroblasts are found in loose connective tissue. Some of these cells are said to be "fixed" because they remain in place; while others are "wandering" and can migrate between the loose connective tissue and the blood and lymph. Adipose cells are fixed cells and often scattered throughout loose connective tissue. These cells store fat; eventually they accumulate so much fat that the nucleus is pushed against the cell membrane. Mast cells are wandering cells found in loose connective tissue and produce heparin and histamine, two compounds whose significance will be discussed later.

Epithelial tissue Epithelial cells cover the surface of the body and line the tubular structures within it. They also cover most of the organs within the body, line the body cavities and form glands. The fundamental tendency of epithelial tissue is to maintain itself in tight-fitting sheets of cells; epithelial tissue is distinguished from connective tissue by the fact that epithelial cells are packed close together. ) Epithelial cells have little intercellular cement between them but have special adaptations on adjacent cell membranes called desmosomes, MITOSIS which enable the cells to stay together and withstand mechanical stress.
