Recently it has been demonstrated that another principal cell of the connective tissue is the smooth muscle cell in several organ systems. These have been shown to be responsible for the synthesis of the connective tissue matrix components of the uterine myometrium and of the arterial system, including collagen, both elastic fibre proteins and glycosaminoglycan.
