Chondroid is a tissue resembling cartilage and occurring in adults.

Mesosome is a characteristic, folded invaginations, specialization of the cell membrane of bacteria which develops as an ingrowth. It comprises tubules, vesicles and lamellae. Septal mesosomes connect plasma membranes with nucleoid. During the cell division process, they assist in septum formation and replication. Consequently, they are also referred to as chondroid. They also increase the enzymatic contact and surface area of the plasma membrane.
