Card Set Information
Epithilum and connective tissues
Where can Simple Squamous Epithelium be found?
Alveoli (air sacs of lungs), lining of heart chambers and endothelium (lumen of blood vessels), Mesothelium (serious membrane of body cavities)
Where can Simple Cuboidal Epithelium be found?
Thyroid gland follicles, kidney tubules, ducts of secretory glands. Regions of most glands, surface of ovaries.
Where can Nonciliated Simple Columnar Epithelium be found?
Lining of the digestive tract, lining of the stomach does not contain goblet cells
Where can Ciliated Simple Columnar Epithelium be found?
Lining of the uterine tubes and larger bronchioles of respiratory tract
Where can Transitional Epithiliam be found?
Urinary bladder lining
Where can Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelium be found?
Ciliated form lines most of the respiratory tract, nasal cavity, part of pharynx, larynx. Trachea and bronchi
non ciliated is rare but can be found in the lining of the epididymis
Where can Nonkeratinized Stratified Squamous Epithelium be found?
Lining the oral cavity, part if the pharynx, esophagus, vagina and anus.
Where can Keratinized Stratified Squamous Epithelium be found?
Epidermis of the skin
Where can Stratified Columnar Epithelium be found?
Where can Stratified Cuboidal Epithelium be found?
duct of sweat gland
Most exocrine glands
Three types of junctions
1. Tight Junctions
3. Gap Junctions
Naming Cell Shape
: Flattened, looks like fried egg
: Cells are as tall as wide, often have round nuclei
: Tall and elongated
Naming Cell Layers
1.) simple- single layer of cells, does not offer good protection, concerned with absorption, secretion and filtration
2.) Stratified- More than one layer
3.) Pseudostratified- Pseudo means false, appears to be stratified but upon closer look all cells are attached to basement membrane
How to recognize epithelium tissue
There is a free surface
Cells are smashed right next to each other
There is a basement membrane
