What does the Epithelial tissues include?

simple, stratified, pseudostratified, transitional, glandular

3

What are the shapes of epithelial tissue?

squamous, cuboidal, columnar

glial, neuron

10

An epithelial tissue that has one layer

simple

11

An epithelial tissue that has many layers

stratified

12

filling between the cells

interstitial/ extracellular matrix

13

Most abundant tissue in the body

connective tissue

14

Where are connective tissues found?

throughout the body

15

What are connective tissues composed of?

Scattered cells with abundant intercellular material

16

What are the functions of connective tissues? (9)

bind structures, support, framework, fill spaces, store fat, produce blood cells, protects against infection, repairs tissue damage

17

produced by connective tissue cells and excreted to their exterior, separates living cells

extracellular matrix

18

what does the extracellular matrix consist of?

ground substances and fibers

19

composed of water and adhesion proteins

ground substance

20

allowing connective tissue cells to attach themselves to the matrix fibers embedded in the ground substance

adhesion proteins

21

strands of collagen, elastin, or reticular protein

protein fibers

22

mixture of fibers and hard mineral deposits

protein fibers and ground substance

23

loose

areolar

24

refers to cartilage

chondro

space

lacunae

26

what are the 2 categories of connective tissues?

dense and loose

27

what do dense protein fiber matrix include?

regular and irregular

28

attachment for basement memberane

loose

29

protein matrix with fat containing cells scattered throughout

adipose

30

netlike meshwork of the collagen fibers that helps hold tissues in place and sometimes helps to filter particles from fluids passing through it

reticular
