Unformatted text preview: CH. 29. Animal Tissues and Organ Systems Objectives : 1. Describe the various levels of animal organization. 2. Know the characteristics of the four main tissues, noting their structure, function, and examples of each. 3. Know the types of cells that compose each tissue type, and cite examples of organs that contain significant amounts of each tissue type. 4. Characterize each of the major organ systems of the human body. 5. Describe how the four principal tissue types are organized into an organ such as the skin. Key Terms : epithelium, -lia simple squamous simple cuboidal simple columnar stratified epithelium glands secretion excretion exocrine glands endocrine glands tight junctions adhering junctions gap junctions fibroblasts collagen elastin ground substance loose connective tissue dense, irregular connective tissue dense regular connective tissue tendons ligaments cartilage bone tissue adipose tissue blood plasma skeletal muscle tissue cardiac muscle tissue smooth muscle tissue nervous tissue neuroglia neurons organ organ system integumentary system muscular system skeletal system nervous system endocrine system circulatory system lymphatic system respiratory system digestive system urinary system reproductive system germ cells somatic cells ectoderm mesoderm endoderm skin keratinocytes keratin epidermis Langerhans cells dermis melanocytes melanin cholecalciferol vitamin D folate Lecture Outline : Impacts, Issues: Open or Close the Stem Cell Factories? A. Stem cells form when a zygote first begins to divide. 1. Stem cells can divide indefinitely without differentiating. 2. They can be coaxed into forming many cell types. B. The most pliable of stem cells comes from human embryos. 1. These cells may be able to repair damaged nervous tissue. 2. But ethical issues have been raised because of the source of the tissue. C. The cells of the body are organized into levels. 1. A tissue is a group of cells that performs a common task. 2. Each organ consists of different tissues working together for a common goal....
