Bind, support, protect, fill spaces, store fat, produce blood cells, framework, fight infection, repair tissue damaged. distributed throughout the body. good blood supply, cells are farther apart, has extracellular matrix between cells. Cells divide easy. Connective Tissues
Provides movements. Attached to bones, in the walls of hollow internal organs, and the heart. Able to contract in response to specific stimuli Muscle Tissues
Transmit impulses for coordination, regulation, integration, and sensory reception. Located in brain, spinal cord, and nerves. Cells communicate with each other and other body parts Nervous Tissues

Fibroblasts produce three types of connective tissue. collagenous fibers, elastic fibers, and reticular fibers.
Most abundant types of fibroblasts collagenous fibers and elastic fibers
Protein in the white fibers of the connective tissues and in the bone matrix. The major structural protein of the body Collagen
thick threads of the protein collagen. fibers grouped in long, parallel bundles; flexible but only slightly elastic. great tensile strength (can resist pulling force). important components of body parts that hold structures together:ligaments/tendons Collagenous fibers
connects bones to bones ligament
connect muscles to bone tendons
Tissue that have abundant collagenous fibers. tissue appears white; sometimes called white fibers dense connective tissue
has sparse or limited collagenous fibers. Loose connective tissue
composed of springlike protein elastin. fibers branch, forming complex networks in tissues. weaker than coll fibers, but elastic. fibers are common in stretchy body parts:vocal cords, air passage. yellow fibers. bundles of microfibrils embedded in elastin Elastic Fibers
protein that comprises the yellow, elastic fibers of connective tissue elastin
are thin collagenous fibers. highly branched and form delicate supporting networks in tissues. Reticular fibers
two major categories of connective tissue connective tissue proper and specialized connective tissues
includes loose connective tissue (areolar, adipose, reticular) and dense connective tissue (dense regular, dense irregular, and elastic) Connective tissue proper
includes cartilage, bones, and blood Specialized connective tissues
forms delicate, thin membranes. fibroblasts cells are located distance apart, separated be a gel-like ground substance that contains many coll fibers and elastic fibers. binds organs, holds tissue fluid. beneath skin, btw muscle, beneath epithelial tissue Areolar Connective Tissue
protects, insulates, and stores fat. beneath skin, around kidneys, behind eyeballs, on surface of heart; cushion joints and some organs (kidneys). insulates beneath the skin, and stores energy in fat molecules. Adipose Connective Tissue
developed when adipocytes store fat in droplets in their cytoplasm. as they accumulate fat, they enlarge, and the nuclei are pushed to the side. adipocytes become so abundant that they crowd out other cell, forming this tissue Adipose Connective Tissue 'formation"

bone forming-cell; bone cell osteoblasts
layer of matrix in bone tissue lamellae
bone matrix is deposited by osteoblasts in thin layers of lamellae, forming concentric patterns around capill located within tiny longitudinal tubes called central(haversian) canals. Osteoblasts in launae surrounded by matrix, they are called osteocytes. Bone Cell formation?
in a bone, the osteocytes and layers of extra-matrix (concentrically clustered around a central canal) form a cylinder-shaped called... Osteon
