I am interested in fibroblast cells in human arteries. Here are the things that I am not clear at the moment and I could not find any answer from the literature:
What are the dimensions of these fibroblast cells? How big are they in terms of diameter and thickness? How big are they if they are comparing with the collagen fibers in the artery?
I think they have to attach themselves to the fibers in order to proliferate or differentiate. However, I do not know, do one fibroblast cell attach itself to one fiber and then "crawl" to another? Or do they "sit" on a network of fibers?
I will appreciate your help on this and will be even more grateful if you could provide me with some literature that I could find the answer to these questions.
