Abstract

From an amorphous ground substance containing polymers of unknown composition arranged in no particular pattern we have in about 50 years arrived at a proposal where the very shape of the tissue and hence of the organism is determined by newly discovered structures, the shape modules, in the ground substance, which were demonstrated by histochemical techniques interpreted on rational biophysical and chemical principles.
