What are 4 characterstics on CT?
connective tissue proper
cartilage
bone
blood
What are 4 functions of connective tissue?
binding/support
protection
insulation
transportation
What are the 3 main elements of CT?
ground substance, fibers, cells in all classes come from mesenchyme
this element fills the space between the cells?
ground sub
this element provides support and there are three kind...what are they?
fiber:collagen, elastic,reticular
this fiber forms thick bundles, high tensile strength(pull), stronger than steel
collagen
this fiber is long thin branching stretchable made of elastin
elastic
this fiber has fine network of collage fibers,surrond small bv,many in basement membrane,found in lymphatic system
reticular
these cells are actively mitotic
blast
these cells can revert back to blast cells to regenerate the matrix
cyte
what does each blast make?
fibroblast
chrondoblast
osteoblast
hematopoietic stem cell
connective tissue proper
cartilage
bone
deals with blood
What are the two types of CT?
loose connective tissue
dense connective tissue
Areolar is a type of ____ CT tissue?
loose connective tissue
this connective tissue has a gel-matrix with WBC and all 3 fibers, cushions and immunity
areolar
this connective tissue has a gel-like matrix w/ fat cells
adipose
this CT has a gel-like matrix with reticular fibers,support WBC's, mast cells, and marcrophages
reticular
this CT has closely packed collagen and run parrallel to direction of pull, very resisitant
dense regular- forms tendons, forms ligaments
this CT has collagen fibers much thicker and arranged irregularly, found where tension exerted from different directions
dense irregular-dermis,fibrous joint capsule,GI tract
a class of CT that is tough, avascular,not innervated, 80% water
cartilage
3 types of cartilage are?
hyaline,elastic,fibrocartilage
this cartilage is most abundant, blue white glassy, contains lots of collage fibers, found at tip of nose,connects ribs to sternum,in trachea and larynx
hyaline
this type of cartilage has more elastin fibers, found in structures that bend easily,ear,epiglottis
elastic
this type of cartilage is less firm, absorps shock,resists tension,forms the invertebral discs,
fibrocartilage
