epithelial, connective, muscle, nervous
four tissue catagories
protection, secretion, and absorption
location of basement membrane
non-living material attaching epithelium to the underlying connective tissue
which epithelial tissue is best suited for exchanging gases?
which type of columnar tissue is associated with the respiratory tract?
tendons and ligaments
examples of dense regular connective tissue
poor blood supply
why does cartilage have limited repair capabililites?
found in brain and spinal cord; highly specialized; sensitive to change
central canal with osteocytes in concentric circles; basic unit of compact bone
reticular fibers with macrophages
long, thin cells with many nuclei; alternating areas of light and dark striations
spindle-shaped cells with one centrally located nucleus; no striations
network of branching cells with one centrally located nucleus per cell; intercalated discs; striations
stretchy tissue found in urinary bladder
secreted fluid through cell membranes into a duct with no loss of grandular cells. Ex. Salivary glands
lose small portion of cell along with a secretion. Ex. mammary glands
release entire cell as part of the secretion Ex. sebaceous glands in skin (oil)
