A&P TISSUES chapter

Apical exposed
Basal attached
smooth muscle tissue involuntary, uninucleate
cardiac muscle tissue uninucleate, striated
skeletal muscle tissue voluntary
canaliculi osteocytes to canal
lamellae rings of bone tissue surround canal
bone (osseous tissue) organized around central canal
fibrocartilage interwoven collagen fibers--found around joints, makes up vertebral discs and pubic symphysis
Adipocytes fat cells
mesenchymal cells stem cells
collagen fibers straight, unbranched fibers strong and numerous in connective tissue proper. Make up tendons and ligaments
reticular fibers branch and interconnect. Form supportive framework of fibers
Reticular tissue contained in liver, kidneys, spleen, lymph nodes, and bone marrow.
Dense regular connective tissue Tendons, ligaments, and aponeuroses(broad, flat tendons)--collagen fibers run parallel to one another, tightly packed
Dense irregular connective tissue collagen fibers run in different directions. Located in dermis, around cartilage (perichondrium), and around bone and tough capsules around organs
elastic tissue dense regular tissue dominated by elastic fibers. Found in walls of arteries, walls of lungs, and ligaments of vertebrae
cartilage cells (chondrocytes)
Lacunae enclosed in tiny chambers...belongs to cartilage cells
hyaline cartilage most common. tightly packed collagen fibers. Found covering bone surfaces and synovial joints, larynx, trachae, bronchi, and between tips of ribs and sternum
elastic cartilage external ear, auditory tract, and larynx.
alveolar/acinar forms pockets...glandular cells
psuedostratified cilated columnar epithelium lines respiratory tract and contains cilia (hair-like projections that sweep material over surface). Has goblet cells
Simple columnar located in digestive tract organs. Microvilli- finger-like projections located at surface, thin, fuzzy layer increase surface area for absorption. Goblet cells rounded and scattered, secrete mucus
simple cubodial found in thyroid gland, ducts and portions of kidney tubules
simple columnar lines stomach and intestines
