Blood cells develop from stem cells in ________.

  1. a. epidermis
  2. b. dermis
  3. c. cartilage
  4. d. bone

Summary Introduction

Introduction: Connective tissues help to connect the tissues with one another. The cells or the fibroblasts mostly secrete an extracellular matrix which is rich in polysaccharides and strands of elastin and collagen. The connective tissue can be classified into two, loose and dense connective tissues. The cartilage, adipose tissue, bone tissue, and blood together form the specialized connective tissues. Blood is the specialized circulatory fluid connective tissue in vertebrates.

Explanation

Reason for the correct answer:

Stem cells are the undifferentiated mass of cells that can differentiate into different forms of cells like muscle cells, nerve cells, blood cells, and so on. Blood cells are considered as the specialized circulatory fluid connective tissue in vertebrates because it consists of cellular components like red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. These components are originated from the stem cells in the bone.

Option d. is given as “bone”.

Blood cells are the specialized circulatory fluid connective tissue because they are formed in bones.

Hence, the correct answer is option d.

Reason for the incorrect answer:

Option a. is given as, “epidermis”.

The epidermis is a layer of skin containing stratified squamous epithelium with plenty of adhering junctions...
