Tissue samples are fixed, sliced, and stained for microscopy List the steps involved in preparing animal tissue for microscopic viewing. 4.2 Epithelial tissue Epithelial tissue covers body surfaces, lines cavities, and forms glands List several structural and functional characteristics of epithelial tissue. Name, classify, and describe the various types of epithelia, and indicate their chief function(s) and location(s). Define gland. Differentiate between exocrine and endocrine glands, and between multicellular and unicellular glands. Describe how multicellular exocrine glands are classified structurally and functionally. 4.3 Connective tissue Connective tissue is the most abundant and widely distributed tissue in the body Indicate common characteristics of connective tissue, and list and describe its structural elements.

Outline the process of tissue repair involved in normal healing of a superficial wound. Review the following topics 4.1 Tissue samples are fixed, sliced, and stained for microscopy (pp. 115–117) A. Tissue specimens must be fixed (preserved) and sectioned (sliced) thinly enough to allow light transmission. (p. 116) B. Tissue sections must be stained with dyes that bind to different parts of the cell in slightly different ways so that anatomical structures are distinguished from one another. (p. 116) 4.2 Epithelial tissue covers body surfaces, lines cavities, and forms glands (pp. 117–126; Figs. 4.1–4.6) A. Features of Epithelia (p. 117) 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
