What type of connective tissue proper does not have a lot of structural rigidity nor abundant fibers?
What type of connective tissue proper is found in hypodermis of skin and under surface epithelia of respiratory system and GI tract?
Dense (regular and irregular)
What type of connective tissue proper has a much higher concentration of fibers than loose, connective tissue?
What type of connective tissue proper has tight bundled structures with fibers that tend to line up in parallel to provide strength?
What type of connective tissue proper is commonly found in the dermis of skin, sheaths of tendons and nerves, and capsules of many organs?
What type of connective tissue proper is commonly found surrounding kidney and adrenal glands?
What type of connective tissue proper is more elastic and found in large arteries and the trachea?
What type of cells originate locally from undifferentiated mesenchymal cells and spend their life in connective tissue?
What type of cells synthesize multi-adhesive glycoproteins, like laminin and fibronectin?
Which adipose is physiologically geared toward creating non-shivering heat but is not very abundant in adult humans?
What is the active process of cells moving from the blood vascular system into the connective tissue?
What process is the progression of cells from inside the blood vascular system to outside in to the connective tissue?
What are the only cells that may return to the blood vascular system from the connective tissue?
In plasma cells, juxtanuclear clear areas account for which organelle not taking up stain?
Which cells present antigen that they have partially digested to stimulate an immune response?
What is characterized by the contraction of smooth muscle and dilation of a lot of fluid from the capillaries due to release of pharmacologically active substances?
Which protein tends to be prevalent in structures such as the interior of the eye or cartilage?
What is anchored inside the cell to the cytoskeleton and externally via fibronectin to the ECM?
What kind of GAG binds a lot of water and can become an aggregate serving as a good model for compressive forces?
A series of genetic disorders characterized by the inability to break down proteoglycans.
What is characterized by ruptures in arteries and the intestine? (Both structures are rich in reticular fibers)
False (fibroblasts are derived from undifferentiated mesenchymal cells and are grouped with the fixed cells along with adipocytes, chondroblasts and osteoblasts.)
T/F Wandering cells are those derived from hematopoetic stem cells such as mast cells, red blood cells, fibroblasts, lymphocytes, and monocytes.
These cells are capable of phagocytosis and are usually first to arrive to an area of inflammation. They are responsible for control of a bacterial infection
