Tissues of the Human Body

4 Basic Types of Body Tissues Epithelial, Connective, Muscle, Nervous
Fluid Extracellular Matrix of Blood Plasma
Serous Membrane that lines Thorasic Cavity Parietal Pleura
Tissue that Transports fluids and nutrients throughout the body Blood
The type of connective tissue that stores excess energy in the form of fat Adipose Tissue
Tissue that lines the intestines, stomach, and uterus Simple Columnar Epithelium
Tissue that lines the ducts of the mammary glands Stratified Cuboidal Epithelium
Tissue that lines the urinary bladder Transitional Epithelium
Tissue that lines the oral cavity, outer layer of skin, throat, vagina, and anal cavity Stratified Squamous Epithelium
Tissue that lines the walls of capillaries, blood and lymph vessels, and air sacs of the lungs Simple Squamous Epithelium
Tissue that lines the kidney tubules and surface of ovaries Simple Cuboidal Epithelium
Tissue that lines the respiratory passages Pseudostratified Epithelium
Tissue that lines part of the male urethra and pharynx Stratified Columnar Epithelium
Tissue that lines the salivary glands, sweat glands, and endocrine glands Glandular Epithelium
Primary Characteristic of Muscle Tissue Ability to contract
Membrane tissue that lines cavities and organs not open to the outside (simple squamous and loose connective) Serous membrane
Membrane tissue that lines cavities and tubes open to the outside (loose connective) Mucous Membrane
Skin membrane tissue Cutaneous Membrane
Membrane tissue in the joints Synovial Membrane
Type of glands that secretes into ducts Exocrine Glands
Type of glands that secretes into tissue fluids or blood Endocrine Glands
The most rigid connective tissue bone
Connective Tissue cell that is largest, most common, star shaped, produces fibers Fibroblast
Connective Tissue cell that engulfs other cells Macrophages
Connective Tissue cells that release heparin and histamines Mast Cells
Tiny projections in the small intestine that increase surface area for absorption Microvilli
Glands that secrete fluids by exocytosis Merocrine glands
Glands that secrete portions of cells Apocrine Glands
Glands that secrete entire cells Holocrine glands
Tissue in the nose, ends of bones, and rings in the walls of the respiratory passages Hyaline cartilage
Tissue in the framework of the external ear and parts of the larynx Elastic cartilage
Tissue between bony parts of the spinal column, parts of the pelvic girdle, and knee Fibrocartilage
Tissue that makes up tendons, ligaments, and deeper layers of skin Dense connective tissue
Tissue beneath the skin, between muscles, and beneath epithelial tissues Areolar Tissue
Tissue that lines the walls of the liver and spleen Reticular connective tissue
