Dense connective tissue has only fibroblast cells??

Dear Student,

In Dense connective tissue, the fibers that are commonly found are collagen fibers that are crowded between rows of fibroblasts. These fibers are arranged to give rope like structures such as tendons and ligaments. In tendons, the fibres run parallel to resist forces in the direction in which the muscle produces force. In bone they are arranged in alternating parallel layers; The ligaments connects bones to bones and the tendons perform the function of attaching skeletal muscles to bones. These are the only which are required to function as they provide strong support by creating mesh-like networks, also due to their property of elasticity.
