Allows movement by transferring force to skeletal system
sends signals for processing and movement
covers surfaces and cavities
Loose Fibrous Connective
has fibroblast cells in a jelly-like matrix. Is found in lungs, arteries, and bladder(where it allows for expansion)
Has fibroblast cells a jelly-like matrix, however there is very little matrix in adipose tissue. Its main function is to store fat in the body. It is found beneath the skin and around the heart and kidneys.
Dense Fibrous Connective Tissue
Has Fibroblast cells in a jelly-like matrix. This type has many collagen fibers packed together and is found in tendons and ligaments.
matrix is formed by chondroblasts and chondrocytes. This type has only fine collagen fibers and is found in the nose, ribs, and walls of respiratory passages. They occur in pairs.
Matrix is formed by Chondroblasts and Chondrocytes. This type has more elastic fibers and is found in the outer ear. Cell shape is irregular and packed closely.
matrix is formed by chondroblasts and chondrocytes. This type has a matrix with strong collagen fibers and is found in the disks between the vertebrae and knee joints. Cells are dotted in matrix and irregular.
gets its rigidity from calcium salts deposited around protein fibers. The matrix is formed by cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts.
the shaft along bones and is composed of structures called osteons.
this is the terminal ends of bones and stlll rigid
composed of plasma(fluid portion of blood), platelets(proteins involved in clotting), red blood cells, or erythrocytes(carry oxygen) and white blood cells, or lymphocytes(fight infection)
