Simple Columnar Epithelium w/ Microvilli

Location: Line digestive tract, gallbladder, and excretory ducts of some glands.



Function: absorption, secretion of mucus, enzymes, and other substances.



Simple Cuboidal Epithelium

Location: kidney tubules, ducts and secretory portions of small glands, ovary surface.



Function: secretion and absorption

Simple Squamous Epithelium

Location: kidney, air sacs of lungs, lining of heart, blood vessels, and lymphatic vessels, lining of ventral body cavity.



Function: passage of materials by diffusion and filtration in safe to wear protection is not important; secretes a lubricating the serosae.

Ciliated Simple Columnar Epithelium

Location: lines small bronchi, uterine tubes, and some regions of the uterus.



Function: propels mucus forwarded by action of cillia.

Stratified Culumnar Epithelium w/ Cilia

Location: Pharynx, anus, and uterus.



Function: protection and movement of mucus.

Pseudostratified Ciliated Columnar Epithelium

Location: line the trachea, most of upper respiratory tract.



Function: secretion, particularly mucus, propulsion of mucus by ciliary action.

Transitional Epithelium

Location: lines ureters, urinary bladder, and part of urethra.



Function: stretches readily and permits distension of urinary organ contained by urine.

Stratified Squamous Epithelium

Location: Moist lining of the esophagus, mouth, and vagina.



Function: Protects underlying tissue in areas subjected to abrasion.

Stratified Cuboidal Epithelium

Location: largest ducts of sweat glands, mammary glands, and salivary glands.



Function: Protection

Reticular Loose Connective Tissue

Location: Lymphoid organs (lymph nodes, bone marrow, and spleen.)



Function: fiber form a soft internal skeleton that supports other cell types.

Areolar Loose Connective Tissue

Location: widely distributed under epithelia of body, packages organs, surrounds capillaries.



Function: wraps and cushions organs, macrophages phagocytize bacteria, plays an important role in inflammation, holds and conveys tissue fluid.

Adipose Loose Connective Tissue

Location: understand, around kidneys and eyeball, with in abdomen, in breast.



Function: provides reserve fuel, insulate against heat loss, supports and protects organs.

Regular Dense Connective Tissue- Fibrous

Location: Tendons, ligaments, aponeuroses.



Function: attaches muscle to bone or other muscles, attached is bone to bone, withstands great tensile strength when pulling force applied and one direction.

Regular Dense Connective Tissue - Fibrous (trichrome stain)

Location: Tendons, ligaments, aponeuroses.



Function: Attaches muscle to bones or other muscles, attached is bone to bone, with stands great tensile stress when pulling force is applied in one direction.

Elastic Cartilage

Location: support external ear, epiglottis.



Function: Maintain shape of a structure while allows great flexibility.

Hyaline Cartilage

Location: forms most of embryonic skeleton, cover the end of long bones in joint cavities, forms costal cartilages of the ribs, cartilages of nose, trachea, and larynx.



Function: support and reinforces, has cushioning properties, resist compressive stress.

Embryonic Connective Tissue - mesenchymal tissue

Location: primarily in embryo.



Function: gives rise to all other connective tissues, later becomes bone.

Osseous Tissue

Location: Bone



Function: bone supports and protects, provides levers for the muscles to act on, stores calcium and other minerals and fat, marrow inside bones is site for red blood cell formation.

Blood

Location: Contained within blood vessels.



Function: transportation of the respiratory gases, nutrients, waste and other substances.

Nervous Tissue

Location: brain, spinal cord, nerves.



Function: transmit electrical signals from sensory receptors and to effector which control activity.

Skeletal Muscle Tissue

Location: in a little muscle which are attached to bone and occasionally to skin.



Function: voluntary movement, locomotion, manipulation of the environment, facial expression, voluntary control.

Cardiac Muscle

Location: Walls of heart.



Function: propel the blood into circulation as it contracts, involuntary control.

Smooth Muscle Tissue

Location: Walls of hollow organs.



Function: propel substances or objects along internal passageways, involuntary control.
