Flashcards in C20 Tissues and Cancer Deck (19):
Tissues are composed of ? plus ?
cells plus extracellular matrix
plant cells surround selves with ECM of ? made of ?
cell wall, cellulose
controls orientation of plant growth
deposition of cellulose
type of cell that synthesizes the extracellular matrix and collagen, the structural framework (stroma) for animal tissues, and plays a critical role in wound healing
animals ECM tensile strength provided by ?
link extracellular matrix proteins to intracellular cytoskeleton
act as space fillers and resist compression
proteoglycans formed from ? linked to proteins
line all internal and external surfaces of animal body
? proteins span epithelial cell membranes and attach to similar ones in other epithelial cells
cadherins linked intracellularly to actin filaments
cadherins linked to keratin filaments
seals neighboring cells together to prevent leakage
anchors intermediate filaments to basal lamina
create small pores that connect cells
? in plant cells are similar to gap junctions
G-protein in mitogen activated signaling
chronic myeloid leukemia is often the result of a specific chromosome translocation that increases activity of ?
