Name the four tissue types Epithelial, Connective, Muscle, Nervous
Connective Tissue is found where? In all organs of some sort
What is Connective Tissue made of? cells and matrix
Immature Connective Tissue cells are called what? "-blasts"
Mature Connective Tissue cells are called what? "-cytes"
Name the two types of Embryonic Connective Tissue Mesenchyme, and Mucous
Mucous Connective Tissue is also called what? Wharton's Jelly
Fibroblasts are responsible for what? Synthesize collagen, elastic, reticular fibers, and most of ground substance
Matrix is made of what? fibers and ground substance
Function of ground substance Fills the space between cells and fibers, and the type of ground substance = type of tissue (jello mould)
Name the main proteoglycan (part of ground substance) Hyaluronic acid
Name the three types of fibers in Connective Tissue Collagen, Elastic, and Reticular
Function of Collagen Fiber Strength (thick and straight)
Function of Elastic Fiber Strength and Flexibility (thin/ wavy)
Function of Reticular Fiber Strength and support (delicate/ branch)
Where are collagen fibers found? Cartilage
Where are Elastic fibers found? skin and walls of lungs
Where are Reticular fibers found? basement membrane of cells and dermis layer of skin
What is Scurvy? Disease resulting from Vitamin C deficiency (Vitamin C needed to make collagen= strength)
Name the three types of Loose Connective Tissue Aereolar CT, Adipose tissue, and Reticular tissue
What are mast cells? cells found in blood vessels and nerves and places of external environment that respond to injury/ inflammation of body tissues
Dense Connective Tissue includes: Regular (parallel), Irregular (multiple directions), and Elastic (sweatpants)
Where is dense connective tissue found? tendons, ligaments, skin, lung tissue, and elastic arteries
What is a type of Phagocytic cell? Macrophages: they filter blood by engulfing foreign objects
What makes up dense connective tissue? collagen and elastic fibers for strength and flexibility
Name the three types of Cartilage Hyaline, Fibrocartilage, and elastic
Where is Hyaline cartilage found? bone surfaces, trachea, and costal/ nasal cartilages
Where is Fibrocartilage found? only in sympheses (pubic, vertebrae)
Where is Elastic cartilage found? epiglottis, external ear, ear canal
What are cartilage cells called? Chondrocytes
Where are cartilage cells located? chondrocytes located in lacunae of bone cavity
Name the two types of bone Spongy and Compact
What does ground substance of blood include? liquid matrix/ blood plasma
