Tissues Types

Location and function of tissue types

QuestionAnswer
simple squamous epithelium Location: lining of heart Function: Allows passage of materials by diffusion and filtration in sites where protection is not important; secretes lubricating substances in serosae
simple cuboidal epithelium Location: Kidney tubules Function: Secretion and absorption
simple columnar epithelium Location: gallbladder Function: absorption; secretion of mucus enzymes, and other substances; ciliated type propels mucus(or reproductive cells) by ciliary action
pseuodostratified columnar epithelium Location: ciliated variety lines the trachea Function: secretion, particularly of mucus; proplusion of mucus by ciliary action
Connective tissue proper:Loose connective tissue, adipose Location: under skin Function: provides reserve fuel; insulates against heat loss; supports and protects organs
connective tissue proper:Loose connective tissue, areolar Location: surrounds capillaries Function: wraps and cushions organs;its macrophages phagocutize bacteria;plays important role in inflammation; holds and conveys tissue fluid
connective tissue proper: loose connective tissue, reticular Location: spleen function: fibers form a soft internal skeleton(stroma) that supports other cell types, including white blood cells, mast cells, and macrophages
connective tissue proper:Dense connective tissue, dense regular(cells compact) Location: tendons function: attaches muscles to bones or to muscles;attaches bone to bones;withstands great tensile stress when pulling force is applied in one direction
connective tissue proper:Dense connective tissue,dense irregular Location: Dermis of the skin Function: able to withstand tension exerted in many directions; provides structural strength
Blood Location: contained within blood vessels function: transport of repiratory gases, nutrients, wastes, and other substances
