wccvettech histology

histology study of tissues
tissue cells, intercellular substances, tissue fluids
tissue types epithelial, connective, muscle, nervous
Epithelial is lining of body cavities, covering tissues, skin and organs
epithelial perfomrs protection and secretion
epithelial shape squamous, cuboidal, columnar, transitional
epithelial arrangement simple; statified, pseudostratified
simple one cell layer
stratified 2 or more layers (protection0
pseudostratified appear stratified, are simple
squamous thin, flat, irregular ex. lining of mouth
cuboidal cube, ducts of kidneys
columnar long thin, respiratory tract, fallopian tubes uterus
transitional change shape, urinary bladder cube to squamous
simple squamous little wear and tear and high osmosis, heart, blood vessels
stratified squamous check cells, skins etc.
simple cuboidal thyroid glands, ovaries, lens of eyes
transitional epithelium lining of bladder
simple columnar stomach, intestines
pseudostratified columnar respiratory tract, male repro
glandular epithelium exocrine, outside; endocrine, pituitary gland
Connective tissue most abundant, highly vascular, binds and support other structure, small # of cells and large amts of inercellular subs.
Connective tissue types proper, loose, dense, specialized: bone, cartilage, blood etc.
Connective tissue fibers collagen, elastic, reticular
Loose connective tissue proper areolar, adipose, hypodermis
adipose tissue fat, insulation, protection, support, food storage, between organs
hypodermis below the skin, cellulite
Loose connective tissue cells fibroblast, fibrocyte form fibers and round substanse after injury
Plasma cells from lymphocytes, anibodies
Dense connective tissue tendons, ligaments, dermis
areolar tissue collagen and elastin fibers, support blood vessels, nerves, Interal organs, binds muscle and skin to underlying tissue
adipose tissue fat, insulation, protection, support food storage
hypodermis below the skin (areolar and adipose)
collagen tough, thick, ligaments, tendons
Ligaments connect bone to bone
tendons connect muscle to bone
elastic thing fibers that stretch, bladder, lungs, stomack
reticular thin, shiny refractile, translucent, binds smooth muscle and form framework, lymph noes, bone marros
fibrocyte fibroblast, form fibers and ground substance after injury
macrophage monocyte, phagocytosis
plasma cells lymphocytes, anitboides, provide defense
mast cells produce anitcoagulant, heparin as well as histamines
melanocytes pigment cell
adipocytes fat cells
leukocytes granulocytes, agranulocytes
Proper loose few fibers; dense many fibers
specialized bone, cartilage, blood and lymph
specialized connective tissue cartilage, bone
Cartilage general shock absorber; avascular
cartilage hyaline most common, smooth surface, at joints over long bones
cartilage white fibrous in between veterbrae along the spine
cartilage elastic provides strength and maintains shape of organs, epiglottis, pinna, auditory canal
bone tissue - osseous skeletal system, protects, supports, movement, calcium and phosphoros storage, red marros
Osteoblasts bone forming cell, osteocyte, located in the lacuna
spongy bone, cancellous, inside
compact bone, dense, outside of long bone, arranged in circles (haversian)
haversian system basic unit of compact bone
