web, tissue (EX: histology - study of composition and function of tissues.)
Cells in the inner linings of the digestive, respiratory, and reproductive systems secrete abundant...
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.
Nervous tissue includes abundant
Has a duct that branches repeatedly before reaching the secretory portion.
The 4 tissue types are...
Epithelial, connective, muscle, and nervous.
Are highly branched and form delicate supporting networks in a variety of tissues.
Fibrocartilage also cushions bones in the...
knees and in the pelvic girdle
Is only in in the heart.
Cardiac muscle tissue
Are farther apart than epithelial cells, and have abundant extracellular matrix between them.
Consists of a single layer of cube-shaped cells.
Simple cuboidal epithelium
Has sparse collagenous fibers
loose connective tissue
Dendrites respond by
transmitting electrical impulses along cellular processes called axons.
Resemblance to glass (EX: hyaline cartilage)
Lines the oral cavity.
Stratified squamous epithelium
Thin collagenous fibers
Channels that link cytoplasm of adjacent cells.
Cartilage tissue lacks...
direct blood supply
Consists of many closely packed, thick, collagenous fibers; a fine network of elastic fibers; and a few cells, mostly fibroblasts.
Dense regular connective tissue
Cartilage cells lie completely within the..
Typically watery and has a high concentration of enzymes.
The three types of cartilage
Hyaline, Elastic, and FIbrocartilage
Histamine is a substance that promotes some of the reactions associated with
inflammation and allergies
Cartilage (EX: chondrocyte - cartilage cell)
Are tightly packed.
Lines part of the nasal cavity.
Pseudostratified columnar epithelium
Found in inner lining of the urinary bladder and lines ureters & superior urethra.
Rich in glycoprotein mucin.
