Connective Ch 6

Connective Tissue

QuestionAnswer
What are the three structrual elements of Connective Tissue? Ground substance, fibers, and cell populations.
What are the three basic fibers in Connective Tissue? Collagen, elastic, and reticular fibers.
What is matrix? A ground substand embedded with fibers that seperate the cells.
Areolar tissue, adipose tissue, and reticular tissue are all... Loose connective tissues.
Desnse regular, dense irregular, and elastice tissues are all... Dense connective tissues.
Cartilage, bone, and blood are all... Specialized connective tissues.
What is areolar? Loosely woven fibers embedded in ground substance; many different cell types wander through; fibroblasts from basic tissues. Wraps and cushions organs.
Where is areolar located? Papillary dermis of skin, hypodermis, muscous membranes, blood vessles, nerves and around the body. (Everywhere)
What is the function of areolar? Strength, elasticity, and support.
What is adipose? Closely packed adipocytes that store fats, forming a characteristic "signet ring" appearance.
Where is adipose located? Hypodermis, around heart, kidneys, and eyes; yellow bone marrow; around joints.
What is the function of adipose? To provide insulation, energy storage, and protection from mechanical injury.
What is reticular? Network of very short interacting collagen fibers or fibroblasts.
Where is reticular located? Stroma of liver, spleen, lymph nodes, red bone marrow, basement membranes.
What is the function of reticular? Forms framework of organs, binds together smooth muscle cells.
What is dense regular? Collagen fibers arranged in parallel bundles, with fibroblasts scattered in between.
Where is dense regular located? Tendons, aponeuroses, and most ligaments.
What is the function of dense regular? Provides strong attatchments to each parts.
What is dense irregular? Collagen fibers randomly arranged and fibroblasts, forming a sheet.
Where is dense irregular located? Dense fascia, reticular dermis, perichondrium, periosteum, joint capsules, dura mater, membrane capsules, heart valves.
What is the function of dense irregular? Strength support and protection.
What is dense regular? Collagen fibers arranged in parallel bundles, with fibroblasts scattered in between.
Where is dense regular located? Tendons, aponeuroses, and most ligaments.
What is the function of dense regular? Provides strong attatchments to each parts.
What is dense irregular? Collagen fibers randomly arranged and fibroblasts, forming a sheet.
Where is dense irregular located? Dense fascia, reticular dermis, perichondrium, periosteum, joint capsules, dura mater, membrane capsules, heart valves.
What is the function of dense irregular? Strength support and protection.
What is elastic? Elastic fibers that branch freely, forming sheets or ligaments.
Where is elastic located? Lung, elastic arteries, trachea and bronchial tree, true vocal cords, vertebral ligaments, suspensory ligament of penis.
What is the function of elastic? Provides extensibility and elasticity to various organs that must be stretched.
