  1. 1. What is shown in the picture?
    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1.Simple Squamous Epithelium

    2. Allows passage of materials by diffusion and filtration in sites where protection is not important; secretes lubricating substances in serosae.

    3.Kidney glomeruli; air sacs of lungs; lining of the heart, blood vessels, and lymphatic vessels; lining of ventral body cavity (serosae).


  2. 1. What is shown in the picture?
    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1.Simple Cuboidal Epithelium

    2. Secretion and absorption.

    3. Kidney tubules; ducts and secretory portions of small glands; ovary surface.


  3. 1. What is shown in the picture?
    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. Simple Columnar Epithelium

    2. Absorption; secretion of mucus, enzymes, and other substances; ciliated typed propels mucus (or reproductive cells) by ciliary action.

    3. Nonciliated type lines most of the digestive tract (stomach to anal canal), gallbladder, and excretory ducts of some glands; ciliated variety lines small bronchi, uterine tubes, and some regions of the uterus.


  4. 1. What is shown in the picture?
    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. Pseudostratified columnar epithelium

    2. Secretion, particularly of mucus; propulsion of mucus by ciliary action.

    3. Nonciliated type in male's sperm carrying ducts of large glands; ciliated variety lines the trachea, most of the upper respiratory tract.


  5. 1. What is shown in the picture?
    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. Stratified squamous epithelium

    2. Protects underlying tissues in areas subjected to abrasion.

    3. Nonkeratinized type forms the moist linings of the esophagus, mouth, and vagina; keratinized variety forms the epidermis of the skin, a dry membrane.


  6. 1. What is shown in the picture?
    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. stratified cuboidal epithelium

    2. Protection

    3. Largest ducts of sweat glands, mammary glands and salivary glands.


  7. 1. What is shown in the picture?
    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. stratified cuboidal epithelium

    2. Protection; secretion.

    3. Rare in the body; small amounts in male urethra and in large ducts of some glands.


  8. 1. What is shown in the picture?
    2. What function does it preform in the body?
    3. Where is it located in the body?
    1. transitional epithelium

    2. Stretches readily and permits distension of urinary organ by contained urine.

    3. Lines the ureters, bladder, and part of the urethra.
