Functions of connective tissue
1. Connect
2. Support
3. Immunity
4. Tranportation
Types of Connective Tissue
1. Ligaments - connects bone to bone

2. Tendons - connects bone to muscle

3. Cartilage - (3 types)

4. Blood

5. Bone

6. Fat
Cell Types in Connective Tissue
1. Fibroblast - forms ECM (extracellular matrix)

2. Chondroblast (cartilage former) - builds cartilage

3. Osteoblast - builds bone, doesn't BLAST it

4. Hematopoietic cells - form blood...poietic means to build

5. Macrophage - part of immune system which EATS bacteria
Epithelial Tissue
Covers surfaces or lines cavities
What is Connective Tissue
1. The most abundant tissue in the body.

2. Surrounded by ECM, or extracellular matrix
Functions of Epithelial Tissue
1. Protection
a. from friction, infection, or chemicals

2. Absorption - in digestion, gas exchange in lungs, radiation in skin

3. Filtration - two different ways

4. Sensory Reception - Smell, Vision, Hearing, Taste, Touch
Two Kinds of Filtration in Epithelial Tissue
1. Excretion: for Waste by kidneys, liver, sweat (which is also secretion)

2. Secretion: for Use as in milk, hormones, sweat (also excreted)
Location of Epithelial
1. Skin: superficial layer

2. Mucous: superficial layer of OPEN CAVITIES (no cutting required)

3. Serous: superficial layer of CLOSED CAVITIES. (must CUT to gain access to serous)
Characteristics of Epithelial
1. Avascular (no blood vessels, since it is a tissue, not an organ)

2. Highly Mitotic (divides ALOT)

3. Layered (two types)

4. Cell Shape (3 types)
Layers of Epithelial Tissue
Simple (single layer)

Stratified (more than one layer)
Cell Shape of Epithelial
Squamous (means scale-shaped like a fish scale) Flat

Cuboidal - a CUBE shape DUH

Columnar - a three dimensional column shape
Epithelial tissue is depends on connective tissue for _______________...?
1. physical support &
2. nutrient supply
Two types of glands, since epithelial tissue is glandular
1. Exocrine glands

2. Endocrine Glands
Exocrine Glands have ____________, and secrete _______, _________, ___________, & saliva.
ducts, mucous, sweat, oil
Glands which are both types (endocrine & exocrine)
Pancreas

Liver
