connective tissue proper: loose adipose

provides reserve fuel; insulates against heat loss; supports and protects internal organs

What is the function of this tissue?

Q image thumb

connective tissue proper: dense regular tissue

attaches muscle to bones or to muscles; attaches bones to bones; withstands great tensile stress when pulled force is applied in one direction

2

What is the function of this tissue?

Q image thumb

connective tissue proper: dense irregular tissue

provides structural strength; able to withstand tension exerted in many directions

What is the function of this tissue?

Q image thumb

connective tissue specialized: ground bone

supports and protects (by enclosing); provides levers for the muscles to act on; storces calcium, other minerals, and fat; marrow inside bones is the site for blood formation (hematoppoesis)

connective tissue specialized: blood

transport of respiratory gases, nutrients, wastes, and other substances

What is the function of this tissue?

Q image thumb

connective tissue proper: hyaline cartilage

supports and reinforces; has resilient cushioning properties; resists compressive stress

5

What is the function of this tissue?

Q image thumb

connective tissue proper: loose reticular tissue

fibers form a soft internal skeleton (stroma) that supports other cell types including white blood cells, mast cells, and macrophages

7

What is the function of this tissue?

Q image thumb

pseudostratified columnar epithelial tissue

secretion (particularly of mucus) and propulsion of mucus by ciliary action

8

What is the function of this tissue?

 

Q image thumb

connective tissue proper: dense elastic tissue

Allows tissue to recoil after stretching;

Maintains pulsatile flow of blood through arteries;         Aids passive recoil of lungs following inspiration

What is the function of this tissue?

Q image thumb

connective tissue proper: loose areolar tissue

wraps and cushions organs; its macrophages phagocytize bacteria; plays an important role in inflammation; holds and conveys tissue fluid

What is the function of this tissue?

Q image thumb

connective tissue proper: elastic cartilage

maintain the shape of a structure while allowing great flexibility (found in the ear)

What is the function of this tissue?

Q image thumb

connective tissue proper: fibrocartilage

tensile strength with the ability to absorb compressive shock
