tissue various groups of cells
principle tissue epithelial, connective, muscle, nervous
Et Simple squamous single layer of flattened cell
Et Stratified squamous many layers of cell, outermost layer are flattened cells
Et Stratified transitional many layers of varying shaped cells, capable of stretching
Et Simple columnar single layer of tall and narrow cell
Et Pseudostratfied single layer of tall cell that wedge together to appear as if there are two of more layers.
Et Simple cuboidal single layer of cell are as tall as they are wide
Simple epithelium single layer of cells
Stratified epithelium several layer of closely packed cells
Stratified squamous (Where?) found in skin and mucous membranes
function of Simple columnar epithelium contain open space with specialized goblet cells that produxe mucus
squamous flat or scalelike
columnar more tall than wide
transitional varying shape that can stretch
glial cells (neurolgia) special connective or supporting nerve cells
nerve cells (neurons) functional / conducting units of system
axon nerve cell body, transmits away from
dendrites one or more nerve cell body, transmits towards
CT Areolar loose arrangement of fibers and cells
CT Adipose (flat) Cells containing large fat compartments, storage tissue
CT Dense fibrous dense arrangement of collagen fiber bundles
CT Bone hard calcified matrix arranged in osteons
CT Cartilage hard, but flexible, matrix with imbedded chondrocytes
CT Blood liquid matrix with flowing red and white cells
CT Hemopoietic liquid matrix with a dense arrangement of blood cell producing cells
function of Hemopoietic tissue forms blood cells and lymphatic system cells
MT Skeletal long threadlike cells with multiple nuclei and striations
MT Cardiac branching interconnected cylinders with faint striations.
smooth muscle tissue (where) in digestive tract and respiratory tubes
neurons functional or conducting unit with special connecting and supporting cells called Glia
Epithelial and Connective tissue have greatest capacity to regenerate
Nerve tissue have limited capacity to regenerate
tissue typing screening process in which cell markers in donated organ are identified for recipient matching
connective tissue (where) most abundant, skin, membranes, muscle, bones, nerves, all internal organs
goblets Cells that produce mucus
Keloid Unusually thick scar
Areolar Loose fibrous connective tissue
Visceral Smooth muscle
Simple squamous epithelium alveoli (air sacs of lungs), lining of blood and lymphatic vessels
Stratified transitional epithelium urinary bladder
Stratified squamous epithelium surface of lining of mouth and esophagus. Surface of skin (epidermis)
Simple cuboidal epithelium glands; kidney tubules
Pseudostratfied epithelium lining of portions of the respiratory tract; lining of uterine (fallopian) tubes
cuboidal epithelium epithelial tissue has adapted to a secretory function and forms clusters of cells called glands.
Connective tissue The most abundant and widespread tissue in the body is
Muscle tissue main function Movement
Cardiac muscle contains intercalated disks
Simple columnar epithelium surface layer of the lining of stomach, intestines, parts of respiratory tract
Dense fibrous connective tissue consists mainly of bundles of strong white collagen fibers arranged in parallel rows.
Cartilage connective tissue Chondrocytes are cells found in this tissue.
Hematopoietic tissue can be found in bone marrow, spleen, tonsils and lymph nodes
Skeleton tissue (striated, voluntary) muscle attach to bones,eyeball muscle, upper third of esophagus
Cardiac tissue (striated, involuntary) wall of heart
tissue (nonstriated, involuntary or visceral) walls of tubular viscera of digestive, respiratory, and genitourinary tracts
avasular no blood vanes
innervated has nerves
Basal basement connective tissue
apical layer top layer of epithelium tissue
ciliated have cilia
Hematopoiesis process of blood formation
Reticular tissue defined by webs and delicate fibers. support other tissue
Glandular epithelium specialized for secretory activity
Exocrine glands discharge their secretions into ducts
Endocrine glands are often called ductless glands because they discharge their secretions (hormones) directly into the blood or interstitial fluid.
Matrix intercellular substance of tissue
subclass Bone tissue compact & spongy
subclass connective tissue loose & dense
loose connective tissue areola, adipose, reticular
dense connective tissue regular, irregular, elastic
cartilage tissue hyaline, elastic, fibro
Epithelial membranes Cutaneous (skin), Mucous, Serous
