Flashcards in Lecture 5: Tissues, Organs, And Organ Systems Deck (14):
1

Name the different types of tissues

Epithelial, connective, muscle and nervous tissue

2

Name all of the epithelia types

Squamous, stratified squamous, cuboidal, columnar and ciliated columnar

3

Polarised

The epithelia membranes are on opposite surfaces

4

What are the two surfaces of the epithelia?

Basal (bottom) and apical (top)

5

What does the expression of transporter proteins enable?

Enables different functions

6

What are the different functions that trnasporter proteins enable?

Different composition of body fluids on opposite sides of the epithelium and movement of solutes or water in a specific direction across an epithelium

7

Name the role of connective tissue

Holds the various parts of the body together which keep tissues and organs in place

8

What are the three components of connective tissue?

Cells, fibres and extracellular matrix

9

Describe cells in connective tissue

Dispersed in the extracellular matrix, fibroblasts secrete fibrous proteins and macrophages phagocytose foreign substances and pathogens

10

What are the three types of connective tissue? ( yes CER)

Collagenous, reticular and elastic fibres

11

What are collagenous fibres for?

Strength and flexibility

12

What are reticular fibres for?

Joining connective tissue to adjacent tissues

13

What do elastic fibres allow?

Stretching and returning to original shape

14

Name the different types of tissue (CEMN)

Connective, epithelial, musclar and nervous
