SHAPES

ARRANGEMENTS

  • Cell – basic structural and functional unit of living organisms
  • Tissue – groups of cells that are similar in structure and function
  • Histology – study of tissues
  • Four primary tissue types –
  • Epithelium –
  • a. Covers surfaces such as;
  • I. External body surface
  • ii. Lines the cavities and tubules
  • iii. Generally marks off the inside from the outside.
  • b. Glands, endocrine and exocrine, are formed from epithelial membranes
  • Function: protection, absorption, filtration, excretion, secretion & sensory reception
  • Characteristics: 1) fit closely together to form sheets or membranes
  • 2) Always have one free surface
  • 3) Attached to an adhesive basement membrane
  • 4) No blood supply of their own
  • 5) Can regenerate itself
  • Classified and named using two criteria:
  • Arrangement –
  • Simple – one layer of cells
  • Stratified – more than one layer of cells
  • Cell shape – Squamous or scale-like
  • Cuboidal or cube-like
  • Columnar or column-shaped
  • Two Exceptions:
  • Pseudostratified epithelium – simple columnar epithelium but the cells extend varied distances from the basement membrane; false appearance of being stratified
  • Transitional epithelium – stratified epithelium found in the bladder.
  • When empty, the apical cells are plump and rounded
  • When full, the apical cells are flattened. 1 of 5

Epidermis

Esophagus

Simple Squamous Epithelia – single layer of flattened cells

Location: Air sacs of lungs, lining of heart, blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, ventral cavity

Lung air sac

Stratified Squamous Epithelium – many cell layers. Basal cells are cuboidal, surface cells are flattened

Location: moist linings of esophagus, mouth, vagina.

Keratinized – skin epidermis

Simple Cuboidal Epithelium – single layer of cube-like cells, large central nucleus

Location: lining the digestive tract, gallbladder, ducts of some glands

Ciliated – small bronchi, uterine tubes, some parts of uterus

slide3

Simple Columnar Epithelium – single layer of tall cells

May be ciliated and/or contain Goblet cells

Location: lining digestive tract, gallbladder, ducts of some glands

Ciliated – small bronchi, uterine tubes, some parts of uterus

Trachea

Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelium – single layer of cells of differing heights

Nuclei seen at different levels; may contain Goblet cells

Location: ducts of large glands, part of male urethra

Ciliated – trachea, most of upper respiratory tract

Transitional Epithelium – resembles both stratified squamous & stratified cuboidal

Surface cells may be dome-shaped or flattened

Location: bladder, ureters, part of the urethra

Muscle Tissue – highly specialized to contract in order to produce movement of some body parts. Cells are quite elongated to provide a long axis for contraction.

Three basic types:

1. Skeletal – long, cylindrical, multinucleate cells; obvious striations (bands

attached to the skeleton. It is under voluntary control.

Function: Contractions move the limbs and other external body parts

2. Cardiac Muscle – found only in the heart; Cardiac cells are uninucleate.

Branch & connect to other cardiac muscle cells at junctions called intercalated discs. It is under involuntary control.

Function: when contraction occurs, blood is propelled through the blood

vessels

3. Smooth Muscle – visceral muscle, Spindle shaped cells with central nucleus, no striationsforms sheets;found mainly in the walls of hollow organs (digestive & urinary tract organs, uterus, blood vessels). They are under involuntary control.

Function: Contraction constricts or dilates the lumen and propels substances forward.

Nervous Tissue – two major cell populations

Neuroglia – special supporting cells that protect, support and insulate delicate neurons

Neurons – highly specialized with a nucleus-containing cell body and their

cytoplasm drawn out into long extensions. Found in the brain, spinal cord, nerves

Function: - transmit nerve impulses from sensory receptors to effectors (muscles & glands)
