1

Cartilage cells are also called...

chondrocytes

2

Definition: Pseud-

False

3

Definition: hist-

web, tissue (EX: histology - study of composition and function of tissues.)

4

Cells in the inner linings of the digestive, respiratory, and reproductive systems secrete abundant...

mucus

5

Are weaker than collagenous fibers, but are easily stretches/deformed and will resume their original lengths and shapes when the force acting upon them is removed.

Elastic fibers

6

Nervous tissue includes abundant

neuroglia

7

Has a duct that branches repeatedly before reaching the secretory portion.

Compound gland

8

The 4 tissue types are...

Epithelial, connective, muscle, and nervous.

9

Are highly branched and form delicate supporting networks in a variety of tissues.

Reticular fibers

10

Fibrocartilage also cushions bones in the...

knees and in the pelvic girdle

11

Is only in in the heart.

Cardiac muscle tissue

12

Are farther apart than epithelial cells, and have abundant extracellular matrix between them.

Connective tissues

13

Consists of a single layer of cube-shaped cells.

Simple cuboidal epithelium

14

Has sparse collagenous fibers

loose connective tissue

15

Dendrites respond by

transmitting electrical impulses along cellular processes called axons.

16

Definition: hyla-`

Resemblance to glass (EX: hyaline cartilage)

17

Lines the oral cavity.

Stratified squamous epithelium

18

Thin collagenous fibers

Reticular fibers

19

Channels that link cytoplasm of adjacent cells.

Gap junctions

20

Cartilage tissue lacks...

direct blood supply

21

Consists of many closely packed, thick, collagenous fibers; a fine network of elastic fibers; and a few cells, mostly fibroblasts.

Dense regular connective tissue

22

Cartilage cells lie completely within the..

extracellular matrix

23

Typically watery and has a high concentration of enzymes.

Serous fluid

24

The three types of cartilage

Hyaline, Elastic, and FIbrocartilage

25

Histamine is a substance that promotes some of the reactions associated with

inflammation and allergies

26

Definition: chondr-

Cartilage (EX: chondrocyte - cartilage cell)

27

Are tightly packed.

Epithelial cells

28

Lines part of the nasal cavity.

Pseudostratified columnar epithelium

29

Found in inner lining of the urinary bladder and lines ureters & superior urethra.

Transitional epithelium

30

Rich in glycoprotein mucin.

Mucus
