connective tissue recognition

location of embryonic aka mesenchymal connective tissue.

is found orimarily in the embryo.

function of the embryonic connective tissue.

gives rise to all adult connective tissue

functions of the loose areolar C.T


location of the areolar loose C.T

around organs, underneath the skin, and around blood vessels.

function of adipose loose C.T

insulates and protects body organs;provides reserve energy fuel.

location of adipose loose C.T

found under skin, in breast

functions of reticular loose C.T

fibers form a soft internal skeleton that supports other cells.

location of reticular loose C.T

bone marrow, and spleen

functions of dense regular C.T

attaches muscles to bones or to muscles; attaches bones to bones.

location of dense regular C.T

tendons, most ligaments.

functions of dense irregular C.T

able to with stand tension exerted in many directions; provides structural strength.

location of dense irregular C.T

fibrous capsules of organs and joints; dermis of the skin.

function of dense elastic C.T

allows recoil of tissue following streching; maintains pulsatile flow of blood through arteries; aids passive recoil of lings following inspiration.

location of dense elastic C.T

walls of large arteries; within certain ligaments associated with the vertebral column; within the walls of the brochial tubes.

function of hyaline cartilage C.T

supports and reinforces; has resilient cushioning properties; resists compressive stress.

location of hyaline cartilage C.T

forms most of the embryonic skeleton; covers the ends of long bones in joint cavities; forms costal cartilages of the ribs; cartilages of the nose; trachea, and larynx.

functions of elastic cartilage C.T

maintains the shape of a structure while allowing great flexibility.

location of elastic cartilage C.T

supports the external ear, and the epiglottis.

function of fibrocartilage C.T

tensile strength with the ability to absorb compressive shock.

location of fibrocartilage C.T

intervertebral discs; pubic symphysis; discs of knee joint.

function of osseous C.T

bone supports and protects (by enclosing); provides levers for the muscles to act on; stores calcium and other minerals and fat.

location of bone C.T


function of blood C.T

transport of respiratory gases, nutrients, waste.

location of blood C.T

contained within blood vessels.

functions of nervous C.T

transmit electrical signals from sensory receptors and to effectors which control their activity

location of nervous C.T

brain, spinal cord, and nerves.

functions of skeletal muscle C.T

voluntary movement; locomotion; manipulation of the environment; facial expression; voluntary control.

location of skeletal muscle C.T

in the skeletal muscles attached to bones or occasionally to skin.

functions of cardiac muscle C.T

as it contracts, it propels blood into the circulation; involuntary control.

location of cardiac muscle c.t

the walls of the heart.

function of smooth muscle C.T

propels substances or objects along internal passageways; involuntary control

location of smooth muscle C.T

mostly in the walls of hollow organs.
