    1. Histology - The Study of Tissues • Whole body contains ~200 different cells types • Four primary tissue classes • epithelial tissue • connective tissue • muscular tissue • nervous tissue • Histology (microscopic anatomy) • study of tissues and how they form organs

    2. Epithelial Tissue • One or more layers of closely adhering cells • Forms a flat sheet with the upper surface exposed to the environment or an internal body cavity • Blood supply • Nerve supply • Sits on ___________________________ • thin layer of collagen and adhesive proteins • anchors epithelium to underlying connective tissue

    3. Connective Tissue • Consists of widely spaced cells separated by fibers and ground substance • Most abundant and variable tissue type • Functions • connects organs to each other • gives support & protection (physical & immune) • storage of energy & heat production • movement & transport of materials • Ground substance - gelatinous material • Absorbs compressive forces • Slows pathogen spread

    4. 3 Fibers of Connective Tissue • _______________ fibers • tough, resist stretch yet flexible • locations? • _______________ fibers • thin collagen fibers coated with glycoprotein • locations? • Elastic fibers • thin branching fibers; stretch/recoil like rubberband • locations?

    5. Cells of Connective Tissue • Fibroblasts produce fibers & ground substance • Macrophages wander through connective tissue phagocytizing foreign material & activating immune system -- arise from ___________________________ • Neutrophils wander in search of bacteria • Plasma cells synthesize antibodies – arise from ______________________ • Mast cells secrete _________________________ & _____________________ • Adipocytes or fat cells store _______________________

    6. Adipose Tissue • Large, empty-looking cells with thin margins; nucleus pressed against cell membrane • Energy storage, insulation, space filled as cushioning • Subcutaneous fat beneath skin & surrounding organs • brown fat found in ________________ animals produces heat only no ATP

    7. Types of Fibrous Connective Tissue • Embryonic - mesenchyme • Loose connective tissue • contains gel-like ground substance between cells • areolar • reticular • adipose • Dense connective tissue – fibers dense • dense regular connective tissue • dense irregular connective tissue • elastic

    8. Intercellular Junctions • All cells except blood are anchored to each other or to the matrix surrounding them by intercellular junctions

    9. Tight Junctions • Tight junctions completely encircle the cell • zipperlike pattern of grooves & ridges • Prevents ________________________________ • common in GI andurinary tracts Tight Junction enlarged

    10. Desmosomes • Patch between 2 cells holding them together against mechanical stress • adjacent thick protein plaques connected by protein filaments • cytoplasmic intermediate filaments also attach to plaque • Does not __________ the cell • Common in uterus,heart and epidermis Desmosome enlarged

    11. Gap Junctions • Known as _________________________ junctions • Ring of 6 transmembrane proteins form a channel • Small solutes pass directly from cell to cell • Found in embryos, cardiac &smooth muscle Gap Junction

    12. Endocrine & Exocrine Glands • Glands secrete substances for elimination or for use elsewhere in the body • composed predominantly of epithelial tissue • Exocrine glands use ________________________ • Endocrine glands have ___________________ • Mixed organs • liver secretes bile into ducts + albumin into blood • gonads release gametes + secrete hormones into blood • pancreas secretes digestive enzymes + hormones

    13. Exocrine Gland Structure • __________ = capsule & CT extensions called septa divide gland into lobes & lobules • ____________________ = cells that synthesize the secretions

    14. Types of Exocrine Glands • Simple glands have a unbranched duct • Compound glands have a branched duct

    15. Types & Modes of Secretion • Serous glands • produce __________________________ secretions • sweat, milk, tears & digestive juices • Mucous glands • produce a glycoprotein, mucin that absorbs water to form a sticky secretion called mucus • Mixed glands contain both serous & mucous cells • Variations in modes secretion (next)

    16. Holocrine Gland • Secretory cells disintegrate in order to deliver their accumulated product & some cell fragments • Oil-producing glands of the scalp are an example

    17. Merocrine & Apocrine Secretion • Merocrine glands release their product by exocytosis • tears, gastric glands, pancreas, etc. • Apocrine glands • mammary glands?

    18. Mucous Membranes • Consists of epithelium, lamina propria & muscularis mucosae • Lines passageways that open to the exterior • Mucous coating & movement of cilia trap & remove foreign particles & bacteria from internal surfaces of body

    19. Synovial & Serous Membranes • Synovial membrane lines joints (only connective tissue comprises this layer) • secretes synovial fluid rich in hyaluronic acid into the joint • Serous membrane (_________) –internal membrane • simple squamous epithelium and areolar tissue covers organs and walls of body cavities, produces serous fluid • ____________________lines blood vessels and heart • mesothelium lines pleural, pericardial and peritoneal cavities

    20. Changes in Tissue Types • Tissues are capable of changing from one type to another • Differentiation • unspecialized tissues of embryo to specialized mature types (mesenchyme to muscle) • Metaplasia • changing from one type of mature tissue to another • Example : smoking • Stem cells

    21. Tissue Growth • Hyperplasia • rapid tissue growth through cell multiplication • Hypertrophy • enlargement of preexisting cells • muscle cells grow through exercise • Neoplasia • growth of a tumor (benign or malignant) through growth of abnormal tissue

    22. Tissue Shrinkage and Death • Atrophy is shrinkage from loss of cell size/number • due to aging or lack of use (leg in a cast) • Necrosis is pathological death of tissue • gangrene is due to insufficient blood supply • bacterial infections and lack of blood • Apoptosis is programmed cell death • cells shrink & are phagocytized (no inflammation)

    23. Tissue Repair • Damaged tissues are repaired in 2 ways: • Regeneration • replacement of dead or damaged cells with original cells • restores normal function • skin injuries & liver regenerate • Fibrosis • replacement of damaged cells with scar tissue (collagen) • helps hold organ together -- function is not restored • healing muscle injuries, scarring of lung tissue in TB or healing of severe cuts & burns of the skin • keloid - healing w/excessive fibrosis (raised shiny scars)
