Cells specialize – heart, liver, skeletal muscle, stomach, etc. If loss of indispensible cells, deadly
Common in glands and ducts – salivary glands and pancreas, kidney tubules, and ovaries
Line digestive tract from stomach to anus
Mucous membranes – membranes that line cavities open to exterior
All cells on basement membrane
Absorption and secretion
Ciliated version lines respiratory tract – propels mucus
Modified stratified squamous
Lines urinary bladder, ureters, and part of urethra
Cells slide past each other allows stretching as urine enters.
More flexible than bone
Collagen fibers hidden by glassy matrix
Supporting structure like larynx, attaches ribs to bone, and covers heads of bone at joints
Skeleton of fetus
Forms cushion like discs that separate vertebrae of spinal column.
Cobwebby tissue, cushions and protects organs
Holds internal organs together and in place
Body part inflamed, this tissue soaks up fluid and swells. What is this called?
Blood cells surrounded by fluid non-living matrix (plasma)
Fibers are soluble, only visible during clotting event
Unique connective tissue
Often called muscle fibers
Found only in heart
Pumps and propels blood
Branched cells that fit together at intercalated discs
Found in walls of hollow organs – stomach, intestines
Contracts more slowly that others,
Irritability and conductivity major function
Neurons – Cytoplasm stretched out as much as 3 feet, conduct signals over long distance
Supporting cells – insulate, support and protect neurons
