  1. Connective Tissue Function
    •Support

    •Bind

    •Help 

                –Insulate

                –Protect

                –Transport
  2. Connective tissue is composed primarily of
    matrix:

    –Non-living separating the living cells

    –Usually has 2-3 fibers

    Collagenous

    •Elastic

    •Reticular

    •Cell present (determined by tissue function)
  3. Areolar connective tissue
    Widely distributed; found under skin, around organs, between muscles

    Wraps and cushions organs
  4. Adipose (fat) tissue
    Found under skin, around kidneys and heart

    • Functions in energy storage and insulation; cushioning for
    • organs
  5. Dense connective tissue
    Found in tendons and ligaments

    Forms strong bands that attach bone to muscle or bone to bone
  6. Cartilage
    • Found in rings of respiratory air tubes, external ear, tip of nose

    • Provides flexible support; cushions
  7. Bone
    Found in the skeleton

    Functions in support, protection (by enclosing organs), and movement
  8. Blood
    • Found within blood vessels

    • Transports nutrients, gases, hormones, wastes; fights infections
