Flashcards in Tissues (Functions) Deck (21):
1

Simple Squamous Epithelium

Filtration, diffusion, secretion

2

Simple Cuboidal Epithelium

Secretion and absorption

3

Simple Columnar Epithelium

Absorption and secretion; if cilia present, sweep material across their apical surface

4

Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelium

Cilia sweep away mucus with
trapped foreign particles;
nonciliated for absorption
and protection

5

Stratified Squamous Epithelium

Protects against abrasion,
water loss, ultraviolet
radiation, and foreign
invasion

6

Transitional Epithelium

Maintain protective lining
while allowing organs
to stretch to hold
variable amounts of
fluid without rupturing

7

Glandular Epithelium

Endocrine: Secreted hormones regulate metabolism and maintain homeostasis
Exocrine: Produce substances such as sweat, oil, earwax, saliva, and digestive enzymes

8

Loose -Areolar Connective

Most widely
distributed -
around most body
structures
strength,
elasticity, support

9

Loose - Adipose Connective

Energy reserve,
insulation, and
supports and
protects organs

10

Loose - Reticular Connective

Stroma -supporting
framework -
forms net to
capture
microbes &
worn-out blood
cells

11

Dense Regular Connective

Strong attachment
between structures
Tendons,
ligaments

12

Dense Irregular Connective

Tensile (pulling)
strength in many
directions
Fasciae, dermis, heart
valves,

13

Dense- Elastic Connective

Allows stretching
and recoil to
original shape
after being
stretched

14

Hyaline Cartilage

Reduces friction and
absorbs shock at
joins, provides
flexibility and support
Ends bones, nose, trachea,
larynx, bronchi

15

Fibrocartilage

Strong and resilient
support and joining
structures together

16

Elastic Cartilage

Provide strength and
and elasticity, help
maintain shape
of structures

17

Osseous Tissue - Bone

Support, protection
and storage, and
provides leverage
for movement of
body by muscles

18

Blood Tissue

Transport and
protection by
phagocytosis
and immunity

19

Skeletal Muscular Tissue

Motion, posture,
heat production,
and protection

20

Cardiac Muscle Tissue

Pumps blood to all parts of the body

21

Smooth Muscle Tissue

Motion of
substances in
hollow organs,
and contraction
of iris of eye
