Flashcards in Lecture 5: Tissues, Organs, And Organ Systems Deck (14):
Name the different types of tissues
Epithelial, connective, muscle and nervous tissue
Name all of the epithelia types
Squamous, stratified squamous, cuboidal, columnar and ciliated columnar
The epithelia membranes are on opposite surfaces
What are the two surfaces of the epithelia?
Basal (bottom) and apical (top)
What does the expression of transporter proteins enable?
Enables different functions
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
Name the role of connective tissue
Holds the various parts of the body together which keep tissues and organs in place
What are the three components of connective tissue?
Cells, fibres and extracellular matrix
Describe cells in connective tissue
Dispersed in the extracellular matrix, fibroblasts secrete fibrous proteins and macrophages phagocytose foreign substances and pathogens
What are the three types of connective tissue? ( yes CER)
Collagenous, reticular and elastic fibres
What are collagenous fibres for?
Strength and flexibility
What are reticular fibres for?
Joining connective tissue to adjacent tissues
What do elastic fibres allow?
Stretching and returning to original shape
