Medical Definition of Microtrabecular network

1. Complex network arrangement seen using the high voltage electron microscope to look at the cytoplasm of cells prepared by very rapid freezing. The suggestion was that most cytoplasmic proteins are in fact loosely associated with one another in this fibrillar network and are separate from the aqueous phase that contains only small molecules in true solution. If it exists, then it must certainly be very labile in cells where there is cytoplasmic flow and rapid organelle movement, now considered artifactual by most microscopists.
