Why Blood Tissues Have Fluid Matrix?

Q) Why Blood Tissues Have Fluid Matrix?


Blood is a connective tissue that has a fluid matrix, called plasma, and no fibers. Erythrocytes (red blood cells or RBCs), the predominant cell type, are involved in the transport of oxygen and carbon dioxide. Also present are various leukocytes (white blood cells or WBCs) involved in the immune response. The fluid portion of whole blood, its matrix, is commonly called plasma.

Because of these living cells suspended in the plasma, blood is considered a fluid connective tissue (not a fluid). It is the only fluid tissue in the body.
