Name the 4 primary classes adult tissues are classified. Epithelial, Connective, Nervous & Muscular
What are examples of where you find epithelial tissue? Epidermis, Digestive lining, Liver & Other glands
What are examples of where you find Connective tissue? Tendon, ligaments, cartilage, bone & blood
What are examples of where you find nervous tissue? Brain, spinal cord, nerves
What are examples of where you find muscular tissue? Skeletal, Heart, Viscera Walls
What is made up of two or more types of tissues? Organ
Define: Histology Study of tissues & how they are arranged into organs
Define: Tissue Similar cells & cell products that work together to perform a specific structural or physiological role in an organ.
Define: Epithelial Tissue Tissues composed of layers of closely spaced cells that cover organ surfaces, form glands, & serve for protection, secretion, & absorption. (Pg. 144)
Define: Connective Tissue Tissue w/ usually more matrix than cell volume, often specialized to support, bind, & protect organs. (Pg. 144)
Define: Nervous Tissue Tissue containing excitable cells specialized for rapid specialized for rapid transmission of coded information to other cells. (Pg. 144)
Define: Muscular Tissue Tissue composed of elongate, excitable muscle cells specialized for contraction. (Pg. 144)
Name the 3 embryonic germ layers and where are they found. Ectoderm (epidermis, nervous system), Mesoderm (muscle, bone, blood), Endoderm (digestive & respiratory tracts and digestive glands)
What distinguishes epithelial tissue from other tissues?
True / False: Epithelial tissue is supplied by blood vessels. False
Name the 2 broad categories of epithelial tissue. Simple & Stratified
Each category of epithelial tissue there are 4 types, name the 3 types each category has in common and indicate the 4th type for each.. 3 Common - Squamous, Cubodial, Columnar 4th for Simple = pseudostratified columnar 4th for Stratified = Transitional
Define: Matrix Extracellular material composed of: - fibrous proteins - interstitial fluid (tissue gel)
Epithelial tissue is anchored by a _________________ __________________. basement membrane made of Collagen, glycoproteins called Laminin & Fibronectin, and a large protein-carb complex called Heparin Sulfate
Where is epithelial tissue usually found? upper surfaces exposed to the environment & lines body cavities
What type of tissue provides nourishment & waster removal for the epithelial layer? connective tissue
Describe the properties that most connective tissues have in common.
