Chpt 3 Tissue Review

Sapulpa Anatomy Chpt 3 Review

transitional The epithelial tissue foun in areas subject to considerable stretching, such as the urinary bladder.
connective tissue that is usually well vascularized and has extensive intercellular matrix.
simple columnar Tissue that has goblet cells
stratified squamous epithelial tissue found in areas subject to considerable friction and abuse.
tendons dense connective tissue
adipose tissue that forms the subcutaneous connective tissue beneath the skin.
endocrine secret their products directly into the blood.
cardiac muscle intercalated disk are only found in this tissue.
smooth type of muscle found in the walls of hollow organ.
dense type of connective tissue that has a matrix that consists of rows of fibroblast that manufacture collagen fibers.
squamous flat epithelial cells
simple single layer of epithelial tissue
hyaline type of cartilage that consist of collagen fibers hidden in a rubbery matrix
smooth type of muscle cells that are uninculeated spindle-shaped cells that lack striations.
simple squamous one layer of cells flattened like fish scales.
microvilli tiny finger-like projection of the plasma membrane that increase the surface area.
simple cuboidal a single layer of epithelial cells that are square shaped.
epithelium lines the body cavities and covers the body's external surface
muscle pumps blood, flushes urine out of the body, and allows one to stand and run.
nervous transmits waves of excitation.
connective anchors and packages body organs
epithelium cells may absorb, protect, or form a filtering membrane
nervous most involved in regulating body functions quickly.
muscle major function is to contract.
connective most durable tissue
connective has an abundant nonliving extracellular matrix
nervous forms nerves
straited squamous epithelia tissue suited for areas subject to friction.
pseudostratified ciliated columnar epithelia tissue that propels substances across its surface
simple squamous epithelia tissue most suited for rapid diffusion
simple cuboidal epithelia that are found in the tubules of the kidney
pseudostratified ciliated columnar epithelia lines much of the respiratory tract/
transitional epithelia tissue that stretches
simple columnar epithelia tissue that lines the small and large intestines
dense fibrous connected tissue that attaches bone to bones
dense fibrous connected tissue that attaches muscles to bone.
osseous forms your patella (knee cap)
areolar connected tissue that composes basement membranes; a soft packaging tissue with jellylike matrix.
hyaline cartilage connected tissue that forms the larynx and the costal cartilages of the ribs.
hyaline cartilage connected tissue that has a firm matrix heavily invaded with fibers and appears glassy and smooth
osseous connected tissue that has a hard matrix and provides levers for muscles to act on.
adipose connected tissue that insulates.
adipose connected tissue that provide reserve fuel.
cardiac muscle tissue that form the wall of your heart.
striated muscle tissue that is voluntary.
striated muscle tissue that moves limbs
smooth muscle tissue that is found in the wall of your stomach.
smooth muscle tissue that is found in the wall of blood vessels.
striated muscle tissue that has many nuclei.
striated muscle tissue that has cylindrical cells
dense type of connective that prevents muscles from pulling away from bones during contraction.
areolar type of connective tissue acts as a sponge, soaking up fluid when edema occurs.
atrophy occurs when muscles that are not used and they decrease in size.
neoplasm abnormal growth of new developing cells
hyperplasia enlarge growth of mammy tissue during pregnancy
regeneration replacement of destroyed tissue by the same kind of cells
fibrosis tissue repair by dense connective tissue, by the formation of scar tissue.
contraction AND shortening What 2 functions are muscle tissues highly specialized for?
smooth muscle tissue that is found in the walls of hollow organs
striated another name for skeletal muscle tissue
hyaline cartilage connective tissues is characterized by a very limited blood supply
connective most widely distributed tissue type found in the body
endocrine ductless glands
endocrine glands that produce hormones
exocrine oil and sweat glands
exocrine glands that secrete substances out of the body through a duct system.
secretion when the body produces a substance to be used by another part of the body.
Extracellular matrix Nonliving material that separates the living cells in connective tissue consisting of ground substance and fibers.
adipose fatty tissue
connective A primary tissue; form and function vary extensively. Functions include support, storage, and protection.
goblet ndividual cells (unicellular glands) that produce mucus.
tendon Cord of dense fibrous tissue attaching muscle to bone.
ligament Band of regular fibrous tissue that connects bones.
cartilage White, semiopaque connective tissue.
edema Abnormal accumulation of fluid in body parts or tissues; causes swelling.
apical surface free unattached surface or edge
basal surface lower surface of an epithelium tissue
avascular no blood supply
vascularized have a good blood supply
