  1. 4 types of tissue
    Epithelial, connective, muscle, & neural
  2. Simply squamous epithelium locations
    • Lines sacs of lungs
    • walls of capillaries
    • blood vessels
    • heart & body cavities
  3. Simple cuboidal epithelium locations
    • Kidney tubules
    • ducts of glands
  4. Pseudostratified columnar epithelium locations
    Lines upper respiratory tract
  5. Keratinized stratified squamous epithelium locations
    • Palms of hands
    • soles of feet
  6. Stratified squamous epithelium locations
    • Forms outer layer of skin
    • lines oral cavity, vagina & rectum
  7. Simple columnar epithelium locations
    Lining intestines & uterus
  8. Transitional epithelium locations
    Ureters & urinary bladder
  9. Collagen Fiber
    • Strong flexible,but not elastic
    • white fibers that stain pink or blue
  10. Elastic Fiber
    • Stretchy- elastin
    • yellow fiber that stain purple
  11. Reticular Fiber
    • Resist force, stabilizes
    • spongy organs (ex.spleen, lymph nodes)
  12. Ground Substance
    • Fills space outside of the cell
    • supports cells and fibers
  13. Adipose connective tissue
    • Functions: Insulates, cushions & stores energy
    • Cells: Adipocytes
    • Locations: Beneath skin, fills space between muscles
  14. Dense regular connective tissue
    • Tightly packed collagen fibers
    • Functions: Attachment
    • Cell: Fibroblast
    • Location: Tendons, & ligaments
  15. Elastic connective tissue
    • Elastic fibers with wavy arrangement
    • Functions: Expansion & contraction of organs
    • Cell: Fibroblast
    • Location: Walls of hollow organs, (Ex. stomach, intestines, esophagus, bladder)
  16. Reticular connective tissue
    • Functions: Supportive framework for spongy organs
    • Cell: Fibroblast
    • Location: Liver, spleen, kidneys
  17. Areolar connective tissue
    • Functions: Anchors skin to underlying tissues
    • Cell: Fibroblast
    • Location: Underlines epithelial tissue and skin
  18. Chondrocytes
    Cartilage cells
  19. Lacunae
    Small chambers that house chondrocytes
  20. Perichondrium
    • Covers cartilage with fibrous connective tissue
    • Receives nutrients & oxygen by diffusion
