All throughout the world, every tissue family is so busy working throughout the body. They never get to see each other and their jobs are always top priority, except this family.
Before their mother, stem cell Sally, and father, stem cell Stan passed away the children promised they would always make time for each other.
R.I.PStem Cell Sally and Stem Cell Stan
They all arrive to the annual family reunion one by one and begin catching up...
Epithelial Ella: My family and I recently moved outside the body into the Base Membrane Neighborhood . My boss offered me the jobs of protection, secretion, absorption, and sensory perception. I'm so excited, but my husband Epithelial Elijah and the children are getting so sick because of bacteria in the apical surface, we may have to move soon.
Connective Cornelius: I'm sorry about that. I am between homes right now, I was living in the Knee but our human had an injury and connective construction is repairing it right now. I volunteer at the Knee and it's a really slow process because the cartilage is so dense and avascular. I'm so busy providing support, holding structure together, and protecting our body, but I really want to study my extracellular matrix as a hobby.
Muscular Mufasa: Well I have some good news! I think my kid is going to be striated like his old man, but my wife insists he's going to be smooth. We bought a home in the Heart but some of our friends moved near the stomach and other muscles. I got a job in the Heart helping it contract and shorten to produce movement. My wife is out of the Heart and is traveling between the stomach, uterus, and blood vessels, helping line them.
They talk and laugh together for many hours and eventually head back to their homes and jobs...
Nervous Natasha: I'm so glad to hear about all your lives. To be honest I was a little nervous to see all of you again. Recently I began working in the Brain, Spinal Cord, and Nerves .My boss is hiring assistants to help me. Neuron Nate will help me with irritability and conductivity and Neuroglia Nancy will help with insulation, support, and protection.
