Outside the cells.

extracellular

In the space surrounding a cell or collection of cells. The extracellular tissue fluid is the medium of transfer of nutrient materials and oxygen, and of waste products, between the cells and the blood.

extracellular

situated or occurring outside the cell, for example extracel lular digestion, where cells secrete enzymes to break down food material which is then absorbed.

extracellular

extracellular (eks″trəsel´ulər),

adj taking place outside of a cell.
extracellular matrix,
n an amorphous or structured substance produced by cellular activity that lies within the tissue but outside the cell.

extracellular

situated or occurring outside a cell or cells.

extracellular constituents
all of the constituents of the body outside the cells; include water, electrolytes, protein, glucose, enzymes, hormones.
extracellular fluid
all of the body fluid lying outside the cells. Includes intravascular fluid or plasma and the interstitial fluid. That part of the extracellular fluid that is in special cavities which have special characteristics, e.g. synovial fluid, urine, aqueous humor of eye, are called transcellular fluids.
extracellular matrix
the network of proteins and carbohydrates that surround a cell or fill the intercellular spaces.
extracellular space
