Flashcards in lab 9-connective tissue(test 1) Deck (11):
1

areolar connective

cells in abundant fluid-gel matrix, loose arrangement of collagen and elastic fibers
function: loosely binds organs, holds tissue fluids
location: around body organs, binds skin to deeper organs

2

adipose

cells is sparse fluid-gel matrix, closely packed cells
function: protects, insulates, stores fat
location: hypodermis, around kidneys and heart, yellow bone marrow, breasts

3

reticular connective

cells in fluid-gel matrix, reticular fibers
function: supportive framework of organs
location: spleen, thymus, lymph nodes, red bone marrow

4

dense regular connective

cells in fluid-gel matrix, parallel, wavy collagen fibers
function: tightly binds body parts
location: tendons, ligaments

5

dense irregular connective

cells in fluid-gel matrix, random collagen fibers
function: sustain tissue tension
location: dermis, heart valves, periosteum on bone

6

elastic connective

cells in fluid-gel matrix, collagen fibers densely packed, branched elastic fibers
function: provides elastic quality
location: larger artery walls, vocal cords, some ligaments between vertebrae

7

hyaline cartilage

cells in firm solid-gel matrix, fine network of collagen fibers, appears glassy
function: support, protect, provides framework
location: nasal septum, larynx, costal cartilage, ends of long bones, fetal skeleton

8

fibrocartilage

cells in firm solid-gel matrix, abundant collagen fibers
function: support, protect, provides flexible framework
location: between vertebrae, between pubic bones, pads in knee

9

elastic cartilage

cells in firm solid-gel matrix, weblike elastic fibers
function: support, protect, provides flexible framework
location: outer ear, epiglottis

10

bone

cells in solid matrix, many collagen fibers
function: supports, protects, provides framework
location: compact- bone shafts, beneath periosteum
spongy- ends of long bones, inside flat and irregular bones

11

blood

cells and platelets in fluid matrix called plasma
function: transports nutrients, wastes, and gases, defends against disease, clotting
location: lumens of blood vessels, heart chambers
