Locations of Simple Squamous Epithelium
Blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, alveoli of lungs, glomerular capsules of kidney
Function of Simple Squamous Epithelium in the lungs
Creates shorter distance for diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide
General Function of Simple Squamous Epithelium
Secretion, diffusion, filtration, secretes serous membrane
Where can you find stratified squamous epithelial tissue
lines mouth, esophagus, anus, vagina or the surface skin
This epithelial tissue lines the nasal cavity, trachea and bronchi
Pseudostratified columnar epithelia
What epithelial tissue secretes and moves mucus by ciliary action?
Pseudostratified columnar or simple columnar
What is the function of the exocrine glands
produces sweat, oil, earwax, saliva or digestive enzymes
This glands products enter the intersitial fluid then diffuse directly into the blood stream
What does ground substance do?
supports cells, binds them together, stores water, provides medium for exchange of substances between blood and cells
Fibroblasts produce the extracellular matrix for what two connective tissues
Loose and dense connective tissue
What makes of areolar tissue
fibroblasts, collagen fibers, reticular fibers, elastin fibers, and ground substance
What tissue provides support for soft organs such as the liver, spleen and lymph nodes
reticular connective tissue
Areolar tissue provides what function ?
binds epithelium to underlying tissues, allows nutrients to diffuse to epithelial cells
This connective tissue resistant pulling forces from different directions and will not tear when stretched
Name the type of connective tissue that provides smooth surfaces for movement of joints, as well as flexibility and support
Hyaline cartilage can be found in what parts of the body
anterior ends of ribs, ends of long bones, parts of nose, larynx, trachea, bronchi and embryonic and fetal skeleton
What does plasma do in the blood
transports nutrients, blood gases, waste, chemical messengers, blood cells and platelets
Smooth muscle is found in what walls of body parts
digestive tract, arteries and veins, urinary tract, instrisic muscles of the eye
Located in the alveoli and provides a short distance for the diffusion of oxygen and carbon dioxide
Lines the stomach and its microvilli; increase surface area for absorption and secretion
Contains elastic fibers and is found in the lungs. This tissue allows the lungs to inflate and then return to its orginial shape
elastic connective tissue
Type of connective tissue packed with parallel bundles of collagen fibers and is found in tendons?
Has a firm, gelatinous ground substance contain collagen fibers. This tissue is found in the tracheal wall to support and prevent the trachea from collapsing
