Vertebrate Anatomy

Chapter 3

Tissue l.jpg

  • A group of cells that is similar in structure and function.

  • A group of similar cells working to do the same job.

Histology l.jpg

  • The study of tissues

4 primary types of tissue l.jpg
4 Primary Types of Tissue

  • Epithelium

    • covering

  • Connective

    • support

  • Muscular

    • movement

  • Nervous

    • control

Tissues and organs l.jpg
Tissues and Organs

  • Organs are made of tissues.

  • Arrangement of the different tissues determines the structure and function of the organ.

Epithelial tissue l.jpg
Epithelial Tissue

  • Main functions

    • Lining

    • Covering

    • Glandular

  • Forms boundaries that separate the body from the outside

    • Thus, any substance given off or received by the body must pass through epithelium

Functions of epithelium l.jpg
Functions of Epithelium

  • Protection

    • Skin protects the internal body from

      • Biological damage

        • infection

      • Chemical damage

        • poison

      • And more…

Functions of epithelium8 l.jpg
Functions of Epithelium

  • Absorption

    • Example: lining of small intestine absorbs nutrients from food.

Your small intestine can absorb almost as much as me!

Functions of epithelium9 l.jpg
Functions of Epithelium

  • Filtration

    • Epithelium in the kidneys filters out toxins from the bloodstream.

Functions of epithelium10 l.jpg
Functions of Epithelium

  • Secretion

    • Glands produce products called secretions

      • Sweat

      • Oil

      • Digestive enzymes

      • Mucus

      • Hormones

Special characteristics of epithelium l.jpg
Special Characteristics of Epithelium

  • Cells fit closely together

  • Form continuous sheets

  • Cells bound at many points by junctions

    • Desmosomes

    • Tight junctions

Structure of membranes made of epithelium l.jpg
Structure of Membranes made of Epithelium

  • Always one free/unattached/exposed surface

    • Top (apical) surface is exposed to

      • Exterior

      • Cavity (internal space) of an internal organ

        • For example – the inside of the stomach

Structure of membranes made of epithelium13 l.jpg
Structure of Membranes made of Epithelium

  • Lower surface of epithelium always rests on a basement membrane

Structure of membranes made of epithelium14 l.jpg
Structure of Membranes made of Epithelium

  • Epithelial tissues have NO blood supply of their own.

    • Avascular

  • Rely on diffusion from capillaries in underlying tissue.

Structure of Membranes made of Epithelium

  • Epithelial tissues can regenerate themselves easily

Classification of epithelium l.jpg
Classification of Epithelium

  • Classification according to number of cell layers

    • Simple epithelium

      • Composed of 1 layer of cells

    • Stratified epithelium

      • Composed of more than 1 layer of cells

Classification of epithelium17 l.jpg
Classification of Epithelium

  • Classification according to shape of cells

    • Squamous

      • flat

    • Cuboidal

      • Like dice

    • Columnar

      • Like columns

Simple epithelia l.jpg
Simple Epithelia

  • Used in

    • Absorption

    • Secretion

    • Filtration

    • Air sacs of lungs

    • Capillaries

  • NOT good at protection

Other simple epithelium membranes l.jpg
Other Simple Epithelium Membranes

  • Serous membranes

    • Slick membranes that line the body cavity and cover internal organs

  • Mucous membranes

    • Line body cavities that open to the exterior

    • Example

      • nasal passages

      • stomach

Stratified epithelium l.jpg
Stratified Epithelium

  • More durable

  • Protection

  • Found in places that get abuse/friction

    • Skin

Glandular epithelia l.jpg
Glandular Epithelia

  • Cells produce secretions

  • Two types of glands

    • Endocrine

      • Secrete hormones

    • Exocrine

      • Have ducts and secrete onto a surface

        • Like sweat

Connective tissue l.jpg
Connective Tissue

  • Found everywhere

    • Most abundant

    • Most widespread

Connective tissue functions l.jpg
Connective Tissue Functions

  • Protection

  • Support

  • Binding

Vascularization blood vessels of connective tissue l.jpg
Vascularization (blood vessels) of Connective Tissue

  • Most connective tissue is well vascularized, but NOT all are well vascularized.

  • Connective tissue that is not vascularized

    • Tendons

    • Ligaments

    • Cartilage

  • Broken bones heal quicker than torn ligaments due to greater vascularization of bones

Connective tissue structure l.jpg
Connective Tissue Structure

  • Cells stuck in a nonliving extracellular matrix

    • Like raisins stuck in raisin bread.

    • Matrix provides hardness (in tissues that are hard)

Formation of extracelluar matrix l.jpg
Formation of Extracelluar Matrix

  • Produced by cells

  • Secreted to the outside of the cells

  • Matrix has two main parts

    • Ground substance

      • Made mostly of water and chemicals that give it firmness

      • Fluid to rock-like

    • Fibers

Fibers of the extracellular matrix l.jpg
Fibers of the Extracellular Matrix

  • Collagen

  • Elastic

  • Reticular

Collagen fibers l.jpg

    • This image shows regeneration in a zebra fish heart

      • Human hearts won’t do this…

Fibrosis l.jpg

  • Replacement of damaged tissue by scar tissue

  • Deep cuts in skin are replaced by scar tissue

    • Usually of inferior quality to original tissue

      • Not UV resistant, etc.

Healing l.jpg

  • Clean cuts heal best

  • Epithelial tissue and bone regenerate very successfully

  • Skeletal muscle regenerates poorly

    • Nervous tissue does not regenerate

Developmental aspects of tissues l.jpg
Developmental Aspects of Tissues

  • Zygote

  • Cell division

  • Blastula

    • Hollow ball
