There are 47575 EST sequences in dense connective tissue.

   Dense connective tissue, also called dense fibrous tissue, has collagen fibers
as its main matrix element. It is mainly composed of collagent type I. Crowded
between the collagen fibers are rows of fibroblasts, fiber-forming cells, that
manufacture the fibers. Dense connective tissue forms strong, rope-like structures
such as tendons and ligaments.
