stratified epithelia are classified according to the appearance of the cells at the ___ surface
____ cells are tall and column shaped with nuclei that are usually elongated top to bottom and are genearlly located close to the base of the cell
cells that line the internal surfaces of blood vessels and the heart and/or form lymphatic vessels; classified as simple squamous
refers to the simple squamous epithelium present in serous membranes that line the ventral body cavity and cover the outer surface of the organs it surrounds
epithelim that has a single layer of flattened cells with disc-shaped central nuclei and sparse cytoplasm
epithelim that allows passage of materials by diffusion and filtration in sites where porection is not importana
epithelium that is located in air sacs of lungs, lining of heart, blood vessels and lymphatic vessels and the lining of the ventral body cavity serosae
epitheliumthat are thick membranes composed of several cell layers; basal cells are cuboidal or columnar and metabolically active; surface cells are squamous; basal cells are active in mitosis and produce the cells of the more superficial layers
in the ____ type of stratified squamous epithelium, the surface cells are full of keratin and dead
epithelium that forms moist linings of the esophagus, mouth and vagina (nonkeratinized)
heart, blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, ventral body cavity, air sacs of lungs
list 5 linings where simple squamous epithelium are located
epithelium that has a single layer of cubelike cells with large, spherical central nuclei
epithelium that is located in the kidney tubules; ducts and secretory portions of small glands; ovary surface
epithelium that is located in the largest ducts of the sweat glands, mammary glands and salivary glands
epithelium that is a single layer of tall cells with oval nuclei; some have cillia; layer may contain mucus-secreting goblets
epithelium that line most of the digestive tract (stomach to anal canal), gallbladder and excretory ducts of some glands
ciliated simple columnar
epithelium that line small bronchi, uterine tubes and some regions of the uterus
digestive tract, gallbladder, excretory ducts, small bronchi, uterine tubes
list 5 areas that are lined with simple columnar epithelium
epithelium that are several cell layers thick; basal cells are usually cuboidal; superficial cells are elongated
epithelium that is rare in the body; can be found in small amounts in male urethra and large ducts of some glands
epithelium that is a single layer of cells of differing heights, some not reaching the free surface; nuclei seen at different levels; may contain mucous-secreting cells and bear cilia
epithelium thats function is; secretion (particularly of mucus) propulsion of mucus by ciliary action
pseudostratified ciliated columnar
epithelium that lines the trachea and most of the upper repiratory tract
epithelium that resembles bot stratified squamous and stratified cuboidal; basal cells cuboidal or columnar;surface cells dome shaped or squamouslike, depending on degree of organ stretch
epithelium that stretches readily and permits distension or urinary organ by contained urine
membranes that cover and line body structures are genearlly formed from both ___ and underlying ___ tissues
srous membranes are compsed of a simple squamous epithelium called ____ that resides atop a thin layer of loose connective tissue;
____ membranes which are formed by epithelial cells that line the internal sufaces of the hollow organsof the digestive, respiratory and urogenital tracts
