anat and physiology
linear arrangements of muscle cells
alternating bands of proteins in muscle cells
energy storage products that is hard to break down.
electrically permeable cell junctions in cardiac muscle.
cells that make bone
main blood supply to the bone cells
small canals supplying blood to bone cells
hardened rings in bone
extremely strong connective tissue fiber.
very stretchy CT
extremely fine connective tissue fiber (from the fetal tissue).
cells that make lipids
cells that make fibers and reproduce constantly.
background substance in con tissue is made of protein plus water.
nuclei are narrow band close to basement membrane. height is several times the distance between nuclei.
square epithelial cells
thin and flat epithelial cells
area where con. Tissue joins epithelial tissue.
the fluid substance of blood
a white blood cell. cells that attack invaders
carries info in and out of the neuron
small cell projections that move items as they “wave” back and forth
central nervous system cells that protect the neurons
specializes in intracellular communication
water-proofs the skin
movement within the non-conscious.
movement that is conscious
yellow-brown pigment produced by melanocytes of the skin
make keratin, strength for nails, hair
least common CT. thinner collagen fibersd interweave in the organism
composed of water and mucins
clot the blood
red blood cells
filtration, osmosis, diffusion (simple squamous epithelium)
air sacs of lungs, lines blood vessels (simple squamous epithelium)
they water-proof the skin. drys outer skin (stratified squamous keratinized epithelium)
outer epidermis (stratified squamous keratinized epithelium)
moves food and urine. regulates diameter of blood vessels (smooth muscle)
digestive, respiratory, urinary and reproductive organs (smooth muscle)
some secretion, some protection (simple cuboidal epithelium)
tear duct, sweat ducts, mammary ducts. (simple cuboidal epithelium)
ultimate cells for absorption and secretion. (simple columnar epithelium)
stomach lining, intestine, gall bladder, uterine tubes (simple columnar epithelium)
stabilizes position of skeleton. guards entrances and exits to the digestive, respiratory, urinary, and generates heat. (skeletal muscle)
with connective tissue and neural tissue (Skeletal muscle)
allows sensing of stimuli, transmit impulses to involuntary muscles and glands. create and move electrical impulses.(nervous tissue)
spinal cord, brain, nerves.
great protection, secretion of mucus, cilia moves eggs. (pseudostratified ciliated columnar epithelium)
trachea lining, fallopian tubes (pseudostratified ciliated columnar epithelium)
reduces friction between bony surfaces, stiff but flexible support (hyaline cartilage)
synovial joints, larynx, nasal septum (hyaline cartilage)
supports. distorts without damage and returns to original shape. (elastic cartilage)
auricle, auditory tube. (elastic cartilage)
resists compression. limits relative movement (fibrocartilage)
pads in knee joint. between pubic bones of the pelvis (fibrocartilage)
contracts to move blood. maintains blood pressure (cardiac muscle)
walls of the heart, (cardiac muscle)
provides firm attachment. reduces friction between muscles. (dense regular fibrous connective tissue)
between skeletal muscles and tendons. covers skeletal muscles. (dense regular CT)
carries oxygen to the cells, and waste products away. (blood CT)
veins, heart (blood CT)
protects vital organs, leverage and movement (bone CT)
tibia, fibula. (bone Ct)
insulates, stores energy reserves (adipose CT)
butt, breasts (adipose)
cushions organs, permits independent movement (areolar Ct)
mid-layer of skin, digestive tract, between muscles (areolar CT)
protects on moist cavities. (stratified squamous nonkeratinized epithelium)
moist linings, cornea, nose lining, esophagus. (stratified squamous nonkeratinized epithelium)
expands and contracts quickly, many times a day. (transitional epithelium)
lines the bladder, ureters. (transitional epithelium)
