- Numerous in sites of bacterial penetration and chronic inflammation
- Produces antibodies (defense against antigens)
- Fat cell � alone or in groups
- Energy reservoir � stores lipids
- White adiocyte � single lipid droplet; large cell; flattened. Peripherally placed nucleus
- bown adipocyte � multiple lipid drop; small cell; centrally placed nucleus
Leukocyte - white blood cells
- Eosinophil, basophil, neutrophil, lymphocyte and monocyte
- May or may not include:
- Specific granules in cytoplasm
- A multibodied nucleus
- Migrate across capillary wall into the eusrrounding connective tiussue
Types of connective tissue
- *Embryonic connective tissue
- *Adult CT
- *Primarily in the embryo or fetus
- *Mesenchymal cells embedded in a fluid substance � all CT in embryonic period
- *Differentiates into all other CT
- *Can persist in adult: around blood vessels
- Mesenchyme cells --> fibroblast
Wharton�s jelly or mucous connective tissue
- Only in fetus --> unbilical cord
- Abundance of ground substance ---> + collagen fiber and fibroblasts
Adult connective tissue - Loose Connetive tissue or areolar connective tissue
- *Loosely arranged fibers and cells in a semifluid ground substance
- *Strength, elasticity and support
- *Papillary layer of dermis; hypodermis;
- *Lamina propria; around nerves and blood vessels
- *Well vascularized
- *Specialized form of loost CT
- *Primarily adipocytes; stores lipid/fat droplets
- *White adipose tissue and brown adipose tissue
- *Energy reserve, support, protection and thermoregulation
- *WAT � hypodermis, joints, heart surface
- *BAT � limited
Dense connective tissue
- *Densly packed fibers with less ground substance than in loose CT
- *Collagenious fiber
Dense regular connective tissue
- *Collagen fibers in the same direction; fibroblasts in rows between fibers; ground substance present
- In areas of unidirectional tensions
� flat band of CT, connects either - muscle to muscle or muccle to bone
Dense irregular connective tissue
- *Collagen fibers in many directions; scattered cells; ground substance present
- *In areas of multidimensional tensions
- *Fascia, capsules of organs; reticular layer of dermis; pericardium � cartilage, periosteum - bone
Elastic connective tissue
- *Predominately elastic fibers; fibroblasts & Ground substance
- *In areas requiring some degree of stretching
- *Walls of large arteries, larynx, trachea. Some broncihial tubes
Reticular connective tissue
- *Predominately reticular fibers; reticular cells, fibroblasts, and ground substance
- Forms the stroma in some organs
- Spleen, liver, lymphnodes
- Provides strength and support
- � supporting component of an organ (CT)
� functional component of an organ (epithelium)
Adult connective tissue
- � cartilage
- - Chondrocyte - mature cartliage cell
- - Lacuna
- - matrix of ground substance with a dense network of fibers
- - Perichondrium
- - avascualr tissue
General structure of Adult CT?
- Chondrocyte � mature cartilage cell
- Isogenous group or cell nest
- 2 or more chondrocytes in same lacuna
� space in matrix that houses the cell
- *Primarily collagen fibers; scattered chondrocytes
- *Most abundant form of cartilage
- Articular cartilage, costal cartilage, wa in upper respiratory tract organs, embryo skin
- *Flexible but provides support
- *Has ability to withstand greater stress and compression that hyaline cartilage
- *Primarily collagenous fivers in bundles or rows (herring bone pattern);chondrocytes in rows
- *No true perichondrium
- *Support and fusion
- e.g. Intebral disc, menisci of knee, pubic symphesis
- *Primarily elastic fibers
- *Increased flexibility while maintaining strength
- e.g.External ear, eustachian tube
Major types of Membranes
� epithelial and synovial
- Epithelium + CT layer � 3 specific types
- Mucus membrane = mucosa
epithelium of membrane
- *type of epithelium varies (nonketirinized stratified squamous to simple cuboidal)
- *protects organs
Connective tissue layer of membrane
- *Loose CT
- *Lamina propria
- *Lines cavities thast open to the outside Organs in the digestive trace, respiratory tract, urinary tract and repooductive tract.
- = serosa
- Invaginated double-walled sac
Epithelium of serous
- *Simple squamous epithelium; �mesothelium�
- Secretes a lubricating fluid
Connective tissue layer of serous membrane
- Loose CT
- Not called lamina propria
- Lines cavities that o not open directly to the outside and also covers organs or structures with in that cavity
- Has parietal and visceral layer
- Pleura, pericardium, peritoneum
Cutaneous membrane Epithelium
- Keratinized stratified squamous epithelium
- Epidermis of skin
Connective tissue layer of cutaneous membrane
- = dermis; has 2 parts
- *Loose CT = papillary
- *Dense irregular CT = Reticular layer
- No epithelium
- CT layer
- Loose CT + elastic fiber + specialized adipocytes
- Joint cavities
- Tendon sheaths
- Secrete synovial fluid
- Lubricates: Permits easier movement
Changes in a tissue do to disease
� at the site of the disease
� far away from the site of the disease
Ways of change in tissue pathology; Atrophy
- Wasting away of a tissue Result of:Change in metabolism
- Decrease of nerce impulses or blood supply
- Aging --> �Senil activity�
- Local inactivity -->�Diverse atrophy�
Ways of change in tissue pathology; Necrosis
- Tissue death with in a living body
- Result of trauma, heat or poison
- Decreased blood supply
Ways of change in tissue pathology; Somatic Death
Methods to restore homeostasis
- *Inflammation response
- *Repair response
process of replacing dead or damaged cells
Sources of new cells:
- Stroma --> supporing part of an organ (CT)
- Parenchyma --> functional part of an organ - epithelium
Quality of repair
- Parenchyma � near perfect
- Stroma � scar - fibrosis
