vocab review for histology

tissue type that covers and lines surfaces of the body epithelium
the connective tissue below the bottom layer of epithelium basement membrane
single layer of flat disc shaped cells, found in lung, glomerulus of kidney and lining blood vessels simple squamous
single layer of square shaped cells found in the kidney tubules and lining the ovary simple cuboidal
type of special connective tissue that has many dark fibers surrounding the lacunae, found in external ear and parts of the larynx elastic cartilage
single layer of tall cells characterized by the nuclei being at many levels and they have cilia. Cells are wrapped around each other. found in trachea, fallopian tubes pseudostratified ciliated columnar
type of connective tissue that is a network of fibers that give shape to friable organs like the speen and lymph nodes. Cannot see this tissue unless it is specifically stained for reticular
Type of cell found in the intestine that secretes mucus. Named for its characteristic shape goblet cell
multiple layered epithelium that appears flakey on the top, nuclei can only be seen in the lower layers. stratified squamous keratinized
single layer of epithelium that has an rectangular shape and its oval shaped nuclei lined up neatly near the bottom of the cell, found in intestines and stomach simple columnar
type of connective tissue that is also referred to as loose. Matrix is made by fibroblasts and contains collagen and elastic fibers. Found under all epithelium areolar
multiple layered epithelium that has nuclei present in all layers, not flakey on the top edge, found in vagina and esophagus stratified squamous non-keratinized
connective tissue that has a characteristic signet ring shape due to the lipids stored inside the cell adipose
connective tissue that makes up tendons and ligaments, mostly collagen fibers with very little matrix collagenous connective
type of special connective tissue that has lacunae lining up in rows like corn kernals on the cob, always found with another connective tissue, makes up intervertebral discs and pubic symphysis fibrocartilage
type of multilayered epithelium that is specially adapted to compress as the lumen of the organ fills, found in the urinary bladder and ureters transitional
glassy looking special connective tissue that is very pale in appearance, makes up the articular cartilage at the ends of bones as well as the embryonic skeleton hyaline cartilage
most rigid connective tissue, its matrix has lots of collagen fibers as well as calcium crystals to harden it. Cells in this tissue are called osteocytes bone
stretchy type of connective tissue that contains mostly elastic fibers, found under the skin elastic connective
most fluid type of special connective tissue, made up of erythrocytes, leukocytes and platelets. considered connective tissue because there are also fibers that are constructed when a clot is needed to be formed blood
material found in between the cells of connective tissue, varies from very hard like bone to fluid like blood extracellular matrix
type of cell that makes all connective tissue proper fibroblast
typeof cell that makes cartilage chondrocyte
