Flashcards in Lec 3-4 - Renal Deck (19):
1

Epithelial cells that line blood vessels, tubules, air sacs of lungs

Simple squamous

2

Outer layer of the skin or outer layer of the cornea type of epithelium

Stratified squamous

3

Most important epithelial cell in kidney tubules

Simple cuboidal

4

Function of simple cuboidal epithelia

Secrete and reabsorb water

5

These line most digestive organs

Simple columnar

6

Mammary glands, larynx, epididymis type of epithelium

Stratified columnar

7

Thin descending and ascending limb are lined by blank epithelium

Simple squamous

8

Epithelial cells can blank form an epithelium

Spontaneously

9

Know steps of absorption and reabsorption

Ok

10

Protective carbohydrate layer on top of microvilli often times

Glycocalyx

11

Presence of myosin and tropomyosin in the blank makes the apical domain contractile

Terminal web

12

All renal epithelia except blank cells have cilia

Intercalated

13

Role of renal cilia is to

Sense flow in the renal cells

14

Junction that prevents things getting into basolateral surface from apical

Tight juntions (zonula occludens)

15

Belts of proteins coming together at tight junctions are called blank

Claudins

16

Claudins are anchored to cytoskeleton via blank proteins

ZO

17

More continuous claudins result in more blank

Tightness of tight junctions

18

Belt desmosome is right under the tight junction and is the primary linkage to the blank

Terminal web

19

Percent of cells in the body that are epithelial

60%
