Sources Prescribed sources: Mader and Windelspecht pp. 589-592 Ross & Wilson pp. 35-38; 55-72 Appendix 3 Introductory comments The human body does not only consist of a mass of cells. Cells are too soft when one takes the size of the human body into consideration. Certain cells secrete substances that surround the cells, which give, amongst others, the body its hardness and toughness. Connective tissue not only binds or connects different tissues to each other, but it also gives support to the body, for example, the skeleton. Connective tissue consists of cells and also amorphous matrix and fibres. Study hint: One of the best ways to study tissues is by means of a comparative study. Make use of a table. All tissues need to be studies under the following headings: Diagnostic characteristics Simple drawing Adaptations and functions Locality in human body

Study unit 5 64 You need to indicate at all tissues why is it a tissue, and why is it a particular tissue. Look specifically to the matrix, types of cells (if present) and support material Study attentively With the above paragraph in mind, study the following types of connective tissues. Use the table on the following page: Areolar connective tissue (loose connective tissue) Dense connective tissue Adipose tissue Hyaline cartilage Yellow elastic cartilage White fibrous cartilage Bone Blood

Study unit 5 66 Apply what you have learned 1. Study the diagrammatic representations of some of the connective tissues in figure 5.4. They capture the main characteristics of each type. Use it to answer the following questions. 1.1 Use the information given in Mader and Windelspecht to identify the different tissues represented in figure 5.8. Give one reason, visible in the diagram, for your choice in every case. (18) 1.2 What is meant with “amorphous matrix”? How do the matrixes of A, D, G an d H differ? (5) 1.3 Mast cells are linked to the immune system. What is their role in the loose fibrous connective tissue in the lungs? (3) 1.4 How do the fibres present in tendons and ligament differ? (2) 1.5 How do the fibres found in D, E and F differ? (3) 1.6 What is a lacuna? Give the symbols of the tissues where lacunae are found.(4) 1.7 F is sometimes brown and sometimes white. What is the difference? (2) 1.8 Which type of tissue forms part of the following structures?

    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.
