4 types of tissue

Simple Squamous

single layer of flat cells, usually forms membranes, line body caveats, lines lungs and capillaries, absorption, and secretion

Simple Cuboidal

single layer cube- like cells, common in glands and their ducts, form walls of kidney tubules cover the ovaries, absorption, and secretion

Simple Columnar

single layer of tall cells, often includes goblets cells, which produces mucus, lines digestive, absorption and secretion

Pseudo stratified Columnar

single layer, but some cells are shorter than other, often look like double cell layer, sometime ciliated, such as in respiratory tract, absorption, and secretion

Stratified Squamous

cells at the free edge are flatted found as protective covering where friction is common, skin, mouth, esophagus, and protection


shape is depends upon the amount of stretching, lines organs of the urinary system, change in shape and filtration


most widely distributed connective tissue, soft, pliable, contains fiber types, underneath your skin, hold organs in place, lubricate, nourish and epithelial tissue


surrounded by fluid, visible clotting, transport


fat glucose predominate large lipid deposit, depends on body fat, insulates, protect, and service fuel storage


delicate network of interwoven fiber, spleen, inside neutron, bone marrow, support (stroma), and lymphoid organ


main matrix collagen fiber, cell are fibroblast, tendon- attach muscle to bone, ligament- attach bone to bone, support, and movement

Hyaline Cartilage

most common cartilage, abundant fiber and rubbery matrix, entire fetal skeleton, and movement


high compressible, between vertebrae and joints, and cushions

Osseous (Bone)

composed of: bone cells, hard matrix, large number of collage fiber, skeleton system, used to protect, and support of body


controlled voluntarily, cell- attach to connective tissue, striated, more than 1 nucleus, skeleton attach to bone, and movement


involuntarily, cells attach to other cardiac, intercalated disk, striated, one nucleus, found in heart, movement, and pumps the heart


involuntary, attach to other smooth muscle, not visible, striation, one nucleus, arrow all hollow organs, and movement


neutron, nerve support, brain, spinal cord, irritability, and conductively impulse to other areas of the body
