    simple squamous epithelium

    simple squamous epithelium
  3. Image Upload
    simple cuboidal epithelium
  4. Image Upload
    simple columnar epithelium

    Tip: Dark band along apical edge= microvilli (increase surface area for absorption)
  5. Image Upload
    pseudostratified columnar epithelium

    Tip: All cells reach to basement layer, but not all reach apical layer. Nuclei @ varying distances from apical border. Falsley stratified. Indentations are called goblet cells, and they secrete mucous into lumen (open area). Notice banding--this is the microvilli that is found in columnar epithelial cells.
  6. Image Upload
    keratinized stratified squamous epithelium

    Tip: Can tell it is keratinized because of distinct layers. There are 5 OBVIOUS layers. Covers outer surfaces of body-- i.e. skin.
  7. Image Upload
    Keratinized stratified squamous epithelium

    • a) corneum
    • b) lucidum
    • c) granulosum
    • d) spinosum
    • e) basal
  8. Image Upload
    Keratinized Stratified Squamous Epithelium
  9. Image Upload
    Transitional Epithelium

    Tip: The circles are on the binucleated cells, which are characteristic of transitional epithelium. The test pointer will likely be right on a binucleated cells.
  10. Image Upload
    Loose connective tissue

    • Tissue: Distinctive purple dots with fibers going in all different directions
  11. Image Upload
    Dense regular connective tissue
  12. Image Upload
    Dense irregular connective tissue
