  3. Dense Regular Connective Tissue
  4. Loose Aereolar Connective Tissue
  5. Loose Reticular Connective Tissue
  6. Loose Adipose Connective Tissue
  7. Embryonic Connective Tissue
  8. Transitional Epithelium
  9. Straified columnar Epithelium
  10. Stratified Cuboidal Epithelium
  11. Stratified Squamous epithelium
  12. Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelium
  13. Simple Columnar Epithelium
  14. Simple Cuboidal Epithelium
  15. Simple Squamous Epithelium
  16. Dense Irregular Connective Tissue
  17. Hyaline Cartilage
  18. Fibrocartilage
  19. Elastic Cartilage
  20. Bone Tissue
  21. Compact Bone
  22. Spongy Bone
  23. Nervous tissue
  24. Function of loose adipose CT
    • -subcutaneous layer around organs
    • white adipose tissue:insulates, stores energy, reserves, support & protect various organs

    brown adipose tissue: generate heat in newborn
  25. Embryonic CT
    • Messenchyme: give rise to all CT
    • Mucous CT: found in umbilical cord of fetus
  26. Function of loose reticular CT
    • contain reticular fiber & reticular cells
    • -bind together cells of smooth muscle tissue
    • -form framework of organs
  27. Function of Lose aereolar CT
    • -several types of cells
    • -3 types of fibers( collagen, elastic , reticular)
    • -subcutaneous layer of skin, blood vessels

    • BLAST=BUILDER
    • CLAST=BREAKDOWN
  28. Function of dense regular CT
    • -forms tendons and ligaments
    • -strong atachment b/w various structures
    • -rows of fibroblasts b/w bundles of collagen fibers
  29. Function of Dense elastic CT
    • -fibroblast among elastic fibers
    • -located in elastic arteries, lung tissue & some ligaments
    • -provide elasticity & strength
  30. Function of dense irregular CT
    • -fibroblast scattered among reandomly orientated collagen fibers
    • -provides strength
  31. CARTILAGE
    • -contain chondrocytes that are in lacunae
    • -avascular
    • -lack nerves
    • -usually covered by perichondria
  32. Hyaline Cartilage
    • -fine collagen fibers
    • -most seen type of cartilage but weakest
    • -flexibilty and support
    • -Located on; end of long bones, nose and trachea
  33. Fibrocartilage
    • -visible bundle collagen fibers
    • -strongest
    • -Located: intervetebral disks, knee menisci, tendons that insert to cartilage, pubic symphysis
    • -provide strength & rigidity & flexibilty and support
  34. Elastic Cartilage
    • -elastic fibers
    • -Located:epiglottis, external ear
    • -provide strangth & elasticity
  35. Bone Tissue
    • -support, protects, helps generate movement, stores minerals, contain red and yellow marrow
    • Compact (dense)-osteons
    • Spongy( cancellous)- trabeculae
  36. Compact Bone
    • -composed of osteons
    • -concentric rings of matrix called lamellae
    • -each osteon contains central canal for vessels
  37. Spongy Bone
    • -trabeculae
    • spaces b/w trabeculae containd red marrow
