What is the matrix in the cell, and how does it connect cells together?
I read about this in my textbook. I know that a matrix is the material (or tissue) that connects other cells together. My book says:
In biology, matrix (plural: matrices) is the material (or tissue) in animal or plant cells, in which more specialized structures are embedded, and a specific part of the mitochondrion that is the site of oxidation of organic molecules.
This wording feels very complex, and I'm having trouble picturing what it's trying to describe.
