histology study of tissues
Histology – study of tissues
  • Groups of cells similar in structure and function
  • The four types of tissues
    • Epithelial
    • Connective
    • Muscle
    • Nerve
epithelial tissue
Epithelial Tissue
  • Cellularity – composed almost entirely of cells
  • Special contacts – form continuous sheets held together by tight junctions
epithelial tissue1
Epithelial Tissue
  • Supported by connective tissue
  • Avascular but innervated – contains no blood vessels but supplied by nerve fibers
  • Regenerative – rapidly replaces lost cells by cell division
classification of epithelia by shape
Classification of Epithelia by shape
  • Squamous, cuboidal, or columnar

Figure 4.1b

classification of epithelia by layers
Classification of Epithelia by layers
  • Simple or stratified

Figure 4.1a

epithelia transitional
Epithelia: Transitional
  • Several cell layers, basal cells are cuboidal, surface cells are dome shaped
  • Stretches to permit the distension of the urinary bladder
  • Lines the urinary bladder, ureters, and part of the urethra
