Stromal cells are connective tissue cells of any organ, and they support the function of the operator cells of that particular organ. Stem cells are basically a number of different people with different differentiating powers depending on their natural environment.


Macrophages: Macrophages are specialized cells involved in detection, phagocytosis and the destruction of viruses and other harmful substances. In addition, they can also release antigens to T cells and initiate inflammation by releasing molecules known as cytokines that activate other cells. Macrophages from blood monocytes leave circulating to separate different tissues. There is a significant variation between the number of macrophages each, which may indicate the required level of expertise in the area of any given tissue. These variations are reflected in their morphology, the type of bacteria they can detect, and the levels of inflammatory cytokines that produce tumor necrosis factor alpha. In addition, macrophages produce active forms of oxygen, such as nitric oxide, that can kill phagocytosed bacteria. Macrophages migrate and circulate to almost every tissue, monitoring viruses or eliminating dead cells.

Adipocytes: Adipocytes, also known as lipocytes and fat cells, are composed mainly of adipose tissue, which is specialized in storing fat. Adipocytes found in mesenchymal stem cells cause adipocytes through adipogenesis. In cell culture, adipocytes can also form osteoblasts, myocytes, and other types of cells. There are two types of adipose tissue, White Adipose Tissue (WAT) and Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT), also known as white and brown fat, respectively, and consisting of two types of fat cells.

White fat cells: White fat cells contain a single drop of large lipid surrounded by a layer of cytoplasm, also known as unilocular. The nucleus becomes flat and pushed around. A typical fat cell is 0.1 mm wide and some is twice as big, and some half that size.

Brown fat cells: Brown fat cells have a polyhedral shape. Unlike white fat cells, these cells have a large cytoplasm, consisting of several lipid droplets scattered throughout the body, and are known as multilocular cells.

Fibroblasts: Fibroblast is a type of biological cell that combines the outer cell matrix with collagen, produces the structure of animal tissue structure, and plays an important role in wound healing. Fibroblasts are normal cells of connective tissue in animals. Fibroblasts have a cytoplasm with a branch around the elliptical, a dotted nucleus with two or more nucleoli. Active fibroblasts can be identified by the abundance of their endoplasmic reticulum. Inactive fibroblasts (called fibrocytes) are small, spindle-shaped, and have a reduced amount of endoplasmic reticulum. Although separate and scattered where they should cover a large area, fibroblasts, when full, usually line up the area in parallel groups.

Pericytes: Pericyte formerly known as Rouget cells in the stem cells have many microcirculation functions around the endothelial cells that line the capillaries throughout the body. Pericytes are embedded in the subcutaneous capillaries of blood, where they interact with endothelial cells using both direct physical contact and paracrine signaling. The morphology, distribution, congestion, and fingerprints of pericyte cells vary between organs and vascular beds. And strengthen the blood-brain barrier. Endothelial, astrocytes, and neurons.Pericycles are replaced to regulate capillary blood flow and the specification and phagocytosis of in vitro cell waste. Pericyte stabilizes and monitors the maturation of endothelial cells through direct communication deficiency of pericytes in the central nervous system can cause increased permeability of the blood–brain barrier.
