In biology , the extracellular matrix ECM is a three-dimensional network consisting of extracellular macromolecules and minerals, such as collagen , enzymes , glycoproteins and hydroxyapatite that provide structural and biochemical support to surrounding cells. The animal extracellular matrix includes the interstitial matrix and the basement membrane. Gels of polysaccharides and fibrous proteins fill the interstitial space and act as a compression buffer against the stress placed on the ECM. Each type of connective tissue in animals has a type of ECM: collagen fibers and bone mineral comprise the ECM of bone tissue ; reticular fibers and ground substance comprise the ECM of loose connective tissue ; and blood plasma is the ECM of blood. The plant ECM includes cell wall components, like cellulose, in addition to more complex signaling molecules. Glycosaminoglycans GAGs are carbohydrate polymers and mostly attached to extracellular matrix proteins to form proteoglycans hyaluronic acid is a notable exception; see below.
The integrity of tissues is also dependent on the adhesion, by CAMs, of cells to cells and cells to the Extracellular Matrix. Extracellular matrix ECM All cells in solid tissue are surrounded by extracellular matrix. Both plants and animals have ECM. The cell wall of plant cells is a type of extracellular matrix. Cells in animals are also linked directly to each other by cell adhesion molecules CAMs at the cell surface.
Bacterial adhesion to animal cells and tissues
Rather, microorganisms have been shown to naturally accumulate on a wide variety of surfaces; where they form sessile, sedentary communities. Those surfaces include household and industrial pipes, biomaterials such as contact lenses, medical devices including implants and urinary catheters, as well as plant and animal tissues. These accumulations of microorganisms of mono- or poly-microbial aggregates are commonly referred to as a biofilm and can consist of diverse communities of bacteria and fungi. The close proximity of the microorganisms enables substrate exchange, distribution of metabolic products and removal of toxic end products so that the different species can support each other. Moreover, the structure of biofilm communities can protect the bacteria within them from attack by antimicrobials, shear forces and the immune system. An example biofilm of two bacterial species Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus epidermidis is shown in Figure 1. Biofilm formation can be divided into five stages: Initial reversible attachment 1 , irreversible attachment , maturation 4 and dispersion 5 as shown in Figure 2.
Если бы я не нашел черный ход, - сказал Хейл, - это сделал бы кто-то. Я спас вас, сделав это заранее. Можешь представить себе последствия, если бы это обнаружилось, когда Попрыгунчик был бы уже внедрен.
Он посмотрел на Сьюзан, стоявшую рядом с ним на платформе. Казалось, все происходящее было от нее безумно. Джабба вздохнул и снова вытер пот со лба. По выражению его лица было ясно: то, что он собирается сказать, не понравится директору и остальным.
Она ощутила запах Хейла, но повернулась слишком поздно.
