Tissues and tissue types

  • Tissues are:

    • Collections of specialized cells and cell products organized to perform a limited number of functions

      • Histology = study of tissues

  • The four tissue types are:

    • Epithelial

    • Connective

    • Muscular

    • Nervous

Epithelial tissue l.jpg
Epithelial tissue

  • Includes glands and epithelium

    • Glands are secretory

  • Is avascular

  • Forms a protective barrier that regulates permeability

  • Cells may show polarity

Functions of epithelium l.jpg
Functions of epithelium

  • Physical protection

  • Control permeability

  • Provide sensation

  • Produce specialized secretions

Specializations of epithelium l.jpg
Specializations of epithelium

  • Perform secretory functions

  • Perform transport functions

  • Maintain physical integrity

  • Ciliated epithelia move materials across their surface

Maintaining the integrity of epithelium l.jpg
Maintaining the integrity of epithelium

  • Cells attach via cell adhesion molecules (CAM)

  • Cells attach at specialized cell junctions

    • Tight junctions

    • Desmosomes

    • Gap junctions

Structure of typical epithelium l.jpg
Structure of typical epithelium

  • Basal lamina attaches to underlying surface

    • Lamina lucida

    • Lamina densa

  • Germinative cells replace short-lived epithelial cells

Classification of epithelia l.jpg
Classification of epithelia

  • Number of cell layers

    • Simple

    • Stratified

  • Shape of apical surface cells

    • Squamous

    • Cuboidal

    • Columnar

Glandular epithelia l.jpg
Glandular epithelia

  • Exocrine glands

    • Secrete through ducts onto the surface of the gland

  • Endocrine glands

    • Release hormones into surrounding fluid

Glandular secretions can be l.jpg
Glandular secretions can be:

  • Merocrine (product released through exocytosis)

  • Apocrine (involves the loss of both product and cytoplasm)

  • Holocrine (destroys the cell)

Glands l.jpg

  • Unicellular

    • Individual secretory cells

  • Multicellular

    • Organs containing glandular epithelium

    • Classified according to structure

Connective tissue functions l.jpg
Connective tissue functions:

  • Establishing a structural framework

  • Transporting fluids and dissolved materials

  • Protecting delicate organs

  • Supporting, surrounding and interconnecting tissues

  • Storing energy reserves

  • Defending the body from microorganisms

Connective tissues contain l.jpg
Connective tissues contain

  • Specialized cells

  • Matrix

    • Composed of extracellular protein fibers and a ground substance

Connective tissue proper l.jpg
Connective tissue proper

  • Contains varied cell populations

  • Contains various fiber types

  • A syrupy ground substance

Fluid connective tissue l.jpg
Fluid connective tissue

  • Contains a distinctive cell population

  • Watery ground substance with dissolved proteins

  • Two types

    • Blood

    • Lymph

Supporting connective tissues l.jpg
Supporting connective tissues

  • Less diverse cell population

  • Dense ground substance

  • Closely packed fibers

  • Two types

    • Cartilage

    • Bone

Connective tissue proper29 l.jpg
Connective tissue proper

  • Contains fibers, a viscous ground substance, and a varied cell population

    • Fibroblasts

    • Macrophage

    • Adipocytes

    • Mesenchymal cells

    • Melanocytes

    • Mast cells

    • Lymphocytes

    • Microphages

Connective tissue proper30 l.jpg
Connective tissue proper

  • Three types of fiber

    • Collagen fibers

    • Reticular fibers

    • Elastic fibers

Connective tissue proper31 l.jpg
Connective tissue proper

  • Classified as loose or dense

  • Loose

    • Embryonic mesenchyme, mucous connective tissues

    • Areolar tissue

    • Adipose tissue

    • Reticular tissue

  • Dense

    • Dense regular CT

    • Dense irregular CT

Fluid connective tissues l.jpg
Fluid connective tissues

  • Distinctive collections of cells in a fluid matrix

  • Blood

    • Formed elements and plasma

      • Red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets

    • Arteries carry blood away, veins carry to the heart

    • Capillaries allow diffusion into the interstitial fluid

  • Lymph

    • Interstitial fluid entering the lymphatic vessels

Supporting connective tissues41 l.jpg
Supporting connective tissues

  • Cartilage and bone support the rest of the body

  • Cartilage

    • Grows via interstitial and appositional growth

    • Matrix is a firm gel containing chondroitin sulfate

    • Cells called chondrocytes

    • Cells found in lacunae

    • Perichondrium separates cartilage from surrounding tissues

    • Three types: hyaline, elastic and fibrocartilage

Bone or osseus tissue l.jpg
Bone, or osseus tissue

  • Has osteocytes

    • Depend on diffusion through canaliculi for nutrients

  • Little ground substance

  • Dense mineralized matrix

  • Surrounded by periosteum

Membranes are simple organs l.jpg
Membranes are simple organs

  • Form a barrier

  • Composed of epithelium and connective tissue

  • Four types

    • Cutaneous

    • Synovial

    • Serous

    • Mucous

Mucous membranes l.jpg
Mucous membranes

  • Line cavities that communicate with the exterior

  • Contain lamina propria

Serous membranes l.jpg
Serous membranes

  • Line sealed internal cavities

  • Form transudate
