Name some properties of Epithelial Tissue.
Line ALL body cavities, organ surfaces and blood vessels
Partly Avascular therefore dependent upon diffusion for nutrients
Name some properties of Neural Tissue.
Resistance to Fatigue
"All or None"
Name some properties of Muscle tissue
Name some properties of Connective tissue
Vascular and Avascular

Name the 3 important cell to cell junctions
2. Tight (adherens) junctions
3. Gap junctions
_____ Anchor cells together
_____ Block movement of molecules between cells
_____ Allow communication between cells
_____ is maintenance of a relatively constant condition in the internal environment.
_____ is dynamic state of homeostasis with capacity to shift the parameters of homeostasis during specific states such as growth, severe immune challenge, pregnancy, lactation, aging.
_____ can be subdivided into two categories: Anabolism and Catabolism
_____ uptake and storage of substrates by tissue for growth, adding to reserves (protein synthesis, lipid synthesis, glycogen synthesis)
_____ utilization and mobilization of nutritional substrates through breakdown of complex compounds to smaller more simple compounds.
_____ is the ambient temp range when circulatory adjustments are sufficient to maintain a steady homeothermic state
What is the thermoneutral zone of cattle?
-20 degrees C to +20 degrees C
