  7. What potentially reversible response of tissue is due to lack of use?
  8. (T/F) The gut is lined with keratinized stratified squamous tissue.
  9. (T/F)) The innermost surfaces of blood vessels are lined with endothelial cells.
  10. (T/F)Squamous cells are flat and closely apposed, such as floor tiles or fish scales.
