  1. Connective tissue
    The most common type of tissues
  2. Connective tissue

    Common characteristics
    • 1. Vasuclarity 
    • 2. Matrix
  3. Connective tissue

    Common ORGIN of Connective tissue
    all arise from mesenchyme
  4. Connective tissue

    Common Characteristics

    Vascularity
    varies from avascular to richly vascular
  5. Connective tissue

    Common Characteristics

    Matrix
    few cells- mostly extracellular matrix

    less cells than material
  6. Connective tissue

    Structural Elements
    • 1. Ground Substance
    • 2. Fibers provide support
    • 3. Cells of CT
  7. Connective tissue
    Structraul Element

    Ground Substance
    • Fills the space between cells
    •    1. interstitial fluid- fluid o side of cell, liquid
    •     2. cell adhesion proteins- glue, CT
  8. Connective tissue
    Stuctural substances

    FIBERS PROVIDE SUPPORT
    • 1. collagen-thick and touch, protein = collagen
    • 2. elastic-stretches, protein = elastin
    • 3. reticular- network of thin collegen fibers
  9. Connective tissue
    Structual elements

    Cells of CT
    • 1. Chondroblast - Cartillage cell
    • 2. Hemocytoblast - blood cell
    • 3. Osteoblast - bone cell
    • 4. Fiberblast - fibers, CT proper
    • 5. Macrophages - moves. phagocyte
  10. Connective tissue

    Types of CT
    • 1. Connective tissure Proper
    • 2. Cartilage
  11. Types of CT
    CT Proper

    Kinds of Loose CT
    • 1. Areolar
    • 2. Adipose
    • 3. Recticular
  12. Connective tissue Proper
    Loose CT

    Areolar
    • 1. Much ground substance
    • 2. few fibers
    • 3. few fat cells
    • 4. mass cells are HISTAMIN (swelling) and HEPARIN (blood clot)
    • 5. most widely distrubuted
  13. Connective tissue Proper
    Loose CT

    Adipose
    • 1. Areolar with mostly adipcytes FAT CELLS
    • 2.  Oil is a good insulator and energy storage
    • 3. fats make parts of cells look square at the side
  14. Connective tissue Proper
    Loose CT

    Reticular tissue
    • 1. provides some structural support for some organs
    •      spllen, lymph nodes
    • 2. Has White blood cells (lymphoctue) reticular fibers and mast cells
