stratified squamous function and location?
protection; skin and oral cavity*
transitional epithelium function and location?
stretching; urinary bladder*, ureters, and urethra
pseudostratified columnar epithelium function and location?
they have ciliated and nonciliated types, both types produce mucus through goblet cells; ciliated lines the trachea*, nonciliated lines the male urethra and large ducts of parotid salivary gland. function is secretion and movement.
simple cuboidal function and location?
secretion and absorption; found in kidney tubules*, exocrine glands, and endocrine glands.
simple columnar function and location?
absorption and secretion, contains goblet cells that secrete mucus; ciliated line uterine tubes and bronchi, nonciliated line stomach to anus (intestinal cells*)
simple squamous function and location?
diffusion; air sacs of the lungs*, capillaries, peritoneum, and pleura, inner lining of arteries and veins

what are the two classifications of special connective tissue?
blood and blood forming; support
what are the two functions of bone?
protection of the vital organs and support (provides a site for muscle attachment)
loose areolar connective tissue location and function?
location is hypodermis and dermis (he had dermis on the lab ppt); support, contains blood vessels that nourish , and the site of immune reactions
adipose tissue function and location?
function: cushion and insulation; located in hypodermis
reticular CT function and location?
has a network of fine reticular fibers and an abundance of leukocytes that provide immunity. provides supporting framework for many vascular organs: liver, lymph nodes
dense regular CT function and location?
bundles of collagen fibers, few elastic. all fibroblasts. known for tensile strength. found in the achilles tendon* (muscle to bone)
dense irregular CT function and location?
bundles of collagen fibers, few elastic interwoven in a random fashion. found in the dermis*.
hyaline cartilage function and location?
location is the ends of long bones, epiphyseal plate*; white glassy appearance due to lack visible fibers in the matrix.
elastic cartilage location?
