Ch 5 CWP Terms (All 69 of them!) "bone + broken"; a type of bone-cutting cell that removes bone tissue by removing the bone's mineralized matrix. This process is known as bone resorption. a type of involuntary striated muscle found within the heart. Its function is to "pump" blood through the circulatory system through muscular contraction. undulating double membrane separating adjacent cells in cardiac muscle fibers - Three types of membrane junctions exist within structure—fascia adherens, macula adherens, and gap junctions. ___ glands are glands that secrete their products (enzymes) into ducts for delivery to a specific site epithelial tissue is composed of cuboidally shaped cells arranged in multiple layers. They protect areas such as ducts of sweat glands and the male urethra. the study of tissue sectioned as a thin slice, using a microtome. It can be described as microscopic anatomy. comprised of a single layer of elongate cells on a surface an epithelium characterised by its most superficial layer consisting of flat, scale-like cells. Epithelium may possess only one layer of these cells, in which case it is referred to as simple___ epithelium; or it may possess multiple layers, referred to then as stratified ___. a classification of exocrine glands within which the secretions of a cell are dumped directly into the lumen. produce and maintain the white semisolid surrounding matrix which consists mainly of collagen and proteoglycans. a short band of tough fibrous dense regular connective tissue composed mainly of long, stringy collagen fibres. It connects a bone to another bone to form a joint. a star-shaped cell, is the most abundant cell found in bone. Cells contain a nucleus and a thin ring of cytoplasm. Once osteoblasts become trapped in the matrix they secrete, they become a ___. the cell fragment circulating in the blood that is involved in the cellular mechanisms of primary hemostasis leading to the formation of blood clots. Dysfunction or low levels of predisposes to bleeding, while high levels, although usually asymptomatic, may increase the risk of thrombosis. ___ fracture: a complete fracture of a bone where at least one fragment has damaged the skin, soft tissue or surrounding body cavity a highly specialized tissue network whose principal component are cells called neurons. Neurons are interconnected to each other in complex arrangements, and have the property of conducting, using electrochemical signals, a great variety of stimuli both within the nervous tissue as well as from and towards most of the other tissues. " glassish "; a substance with a glass-like appearance. ___ cartilage is the clear, shiny ("glass-like") cartilage of articular joints an integrated system of ductless glands that involve the release of extracellular signaling molecules known as hormones. The ____system is instrumental in regulating metabolism, growth and development and puberty, tissue function, and plays a part also in mood. cell which invades blood clot, producing fibers which reinforce damaged area to
