Caption: Nasal cartilage. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a freeze-fractured section through hyaline cartilage of the human nose. Chondrocyte cells (yellow) in the cartilage synthesize an extracellular matrix (brown) that keeps them separate from each other, in spaces known as lacunae. Cartilage is a flexible but strong supportive connective tissue. Unlike bone and all other connective tissue types, cartilage is avascular, lacking blood vessels. For this reason alone, cartilage does not possess the regenerative capacity of bone or the other connective tissue types. Magnification: x8000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
