A&P chpt 4 conn tis

connective tissue proper con tissue that contains varied cell populations and fiber types surrounded by a syrupy ground substance
fluid connective tissues have distinctive populations of cells suspended in a watery matrix that contains dissolved proteins. the two types of fluid conn tissues are blood and lymph
supporting connective tissues have a less diverse cell population than connective tissue proper and a dense matrix with closely packed fibers. the two types are cartilage and bone
types of connective tissue proper fibroblasts, fibrocytes, macrophages, adipocytes, mesenchymal cells, melanocytes, mast cells, lymphocytes, and microphages
3 types of fibers in connective tissue collagen fibers, reticular fibers, and elastic fibers
Embryonic connective tissue the first connective tissue to appear in an embryo
classifications of connective tissue proper loose connective tissue or dense connective tissue
types of loose connective tissue areolar tissue, adipose tissue (white fat and brown fat), and reticular tissue.
Dense connective tissue most of this volume consists of fibers. two types are dense regular and dense irregular
Blood and lymph connective tissues that contain distinctive contain distinctive collections of cells in a fluid matrix
plasma the watery matrix of blood
arteries carry blood away from the heart and toward capillaries
veins return blood to the heart
supporting connective tissues cartilage and bone, because they support the rest of the body
three types of cartilage hyaline, elastic, fribrous
chondrocytes rely on diffusion through the avascular matrix to obtain nutrients
cartilage grows by two mechanisms: interstitial growth and appositional growth
bone consists of osteocytes, little ground substance, and a dense, mineralized matrix consisting of calcium salts and collagen fibers
osteocytes depend on diffusion through canaliculi for nutrient intake
serous membranes line the body's sealed internal cavities
cutaneous membrane aka skin, covers the body surface
synovial membranes form an incomplete lining within the cavities of synovial joints
