  1. Simple squamous
    -F: allow for diffusion, filtration

    -L: Kidney glomeruli, air sacs in lungs, lining of heart
  2. Simple cuboidal
    -F: secretion and absorption

    -L: kidney tubules, ducts, secretory surface of small glands
  3. Simple columnar
    -F: absorption, secretion of mucus, enzymes, ciliated types --> ciliary action

    -L: digestive tract, cilia --> small bronchi, uterine tubes
  4. Pseudostratified columnar
    -F: secretes mucus, propulsion of mucus via cilia

    -L: trachea, upper respiratory tract
  5. Stratified squamous
    -F: protects underlying tissues in areas subject to abrasion

    -L: esophagus, mouth, vagina, epidermis
  6. Transitional epithelium
    -F: stretches readily, permits storage of urine

    -L: lines ureters, bladder, urethra
  7. Areolar loose CT
    (CT proper)
    -F: wraps, cushions organs, has immune functions (macrophages)

    -L: under epithelia of body
  8. Adipose loose CT
    (CT proper)
    -F: provides reserve food fuel, insulation, support and protect organs

    -L: under skin in subcutaneous tissue, around kidney, eyeball, abdomen, breast
  9. Reticular loose CT
    (CT proper)
    -F: forms a soft internal skeleton that supports other cell types (WBCs, mast cells, macrophages)

    -L: Lymphoid organs (lymph nodes, bone marrow, spleen)
  10. Dense regular CT
    (CT proper)
    • -F: withstand tensile stress, attaches muscles to bone or to muscles
