Unformatted text preview: spiratory tract and female reproductive tract Under epidermis of skin (keratinized), and also in lining of mouth, esophagus, anus, and vagina (non-keratinized) Ciliated found as lining in respiratory tract, and non ciliated ciliated or non-ciliated Transitional epithelium Stratified epithelium that’s able to stretch found in large glands and parts of male urethra Accomodates and allows stretching of bladder and ureter Found in bladder and ureter Connective Tissue Histology Tissue Type Loose: Areolar Characteristics Most common, contains all 3 types of fibers, ground substance has most of body’s water Functions Locations It’s the body’s interstitial tissue Part of dermis of skin, underlying supportive layer of GI, respiratory, and genitourinary tracts, serous membranes Loose: Adipose Cells are closely packed, has little matrix. Stores lipids in vacuoles. Cells will only shrink in size, and liposuction is the only thing that can remove them. Stores body’s lipids, which can be converted to energy via oxidation, and acts as cushions and insulation for many of the organs in the body Found around heart, eyes, kidneys, spleen, around skin and in the medullary canal of long bones. Loose: Reticular Consists of delicate fibers forming interlacing networks. Internal support of the kidneys, spleen, liver, and many other soft organs Kidneys, spleen, liver, other soft organs Dense regular connective tissue Consists of almost entirely collagen fibers in densely packed arrays, with rows of cells between the fiber bundles Forms structure of tendons, ligaments, sponeuroses, fascia, and fibrous joints Arms, legs Dense irregular connective tissue Has few cells, mostly fibroblasts, and many fibers, mostly collagen arranged in an irregular pattern Very strong and withstands stresses many of the organs may be subjected to. Also produces supporting submucosa of the hollow organs and capsules of synovial joints Found in the deep layer of the skin’s dermis, synovial joints, Dense elastic connective tissue Consists of elastic fibers It’s flexibility allows it to absorb arterial pulse pressure and gives lungs their recoil Found in walls of arteries and in stroma of lungs, and also in certain elastic ligaments Hyaline Cartilage Organic collagen fibers, finely divided and cannot be seen in the light microscope. Most common type of cartilage Acts as model for bone development Found in nose, attached to ribs as articular cartilage, and is the model for bones Elastic cartilage Dense bundles of elastic fibers and is rare Allows for flexibility Epiglottis and ear Fibrocartilage Dense bundles of collagen fibers Major component of intervertebral disks and symphysis pubis Intervertebral disks and symphysis pubis Connective Tissue Histology-EMILY WISDOM Tissue Type Characteristics Functions Locations Three types of fibers and contains interstitial fluid Underlying supportive layer Areolar Dermis of the skin, GI,respiratory and genitourinary tracts, serous membranes Adipose Cells store lipids in a large vacuole Sho...
