TAG 1: A Fibroblast Cell manufactures and maintains connective tissue. They secrete fibrous proteins and ground substance. These form the extracellular matrix which is the basis of connective tissue. Overall, fibroblasts provide connective tissues their strength, form, and ability to adhere to other tissues. http://education-portal.com/academy/lesson/what-are-fibroblasts-definition-lesson-quiz.html#lesson www.anatomybox.com
TAG 2: Vitamin C is associated with the fibroblast cell. This vitamin is needed for the growth and repair of tissues. It also produces collagen(protein that is used to make skin, cartilage, tendon, ligaments, and blood vessels). Vitamin C and the fibroblast cell work hand in hand with tissues. Vitamin C helps to grow and repair them and fibroblasts help maintain them.

TAG 4: Function: The main function of a fibroblast is to produce the extracellular matrix and collagen needed for tissues. They are needed to maintain the structure of connective tissues. Structure: Fibroblasts are elongated spindle shaped cells with a slightly indented nucleus. They have a large golgi apparatus with small granules or globules in this region. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/0014480062900400 http://www.news-medical.net/health/Fibroblasts- What-do-they-do.aspx www.vetmed.vt.edu
TAG 3: A fibroblast has two different stages. When the cell is actively dividing and making connective tissue, it is known as a fibroblast. When it goes dormant, it is known as a fibrocyte. Fibrocytes change shape, becoming more cylindrical over time, which makes them easy to identify. http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-a-fibroblast.htm classconnection.s3.amazonaws.com
TAG 5: Fibroblast interact with and attach to collagen matrices. The interaction between alveolar epithelial cells and fibroblasts are central to the pathogenesis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0925443913000756 ars.els-cdn.com
