Fibrocartilage

Function: Tensile strength with the ability to absorb compressive shock


Location: Inver-vertebral discs

Smooth Muscle

Function: Movement in hollow organs


Location: Hollow organs

Keratinized Stratified Squamous

Function:Filled with a tough protective fibrous intracellular protein called keratin. Protection of underlying tissue.


Location: Epidermis of the skin

Red Blood Cells

Function: Transport of respiratory gases, nutrients, wastes, and other substances


Location: Contained within blood vessels

Non-Keratinized Stratified Squamous

Function: Secrection and movements of mucin, also movement of oocytes


Location: Lining of uterine tubes and larger bronchioles of respiratory tract

Loose Areolar

Function: attaches epithelium to underlying tissues and allows for diffusion of nutrients to epithelial cells


Location: beneath epithelial tissues

Neurons

Function: transmit nerve impulses that move information around the body.



Simple Columnar

Function: Absorption; secretion of mucus, enzymes, and other substances; ciliated type propels mucus (or reproductive cells) by ciliated action.


Location: nonciliated type lines most of the digestive tract (stomach to anal canal), gallbladder and excretory ducts of some glands; ciliated variety lines small bronchi, uterine tubes, and some regions of the uterus.

Transitional

Function: Stretches readily and permits dissension of urinary organ by contained urine


Location: Lines the ureters, urinary bladder, and part of the urethra

Regular Dense Collagenous

Function: Attaches muscle to bone


Location: Tendons and most ligaments

Simple Squamous

Function: Rapid diffusion, filtration. 
Location: Found in lung alveoli, lining of heart chambers, lumen of blood vessels, serous membranes

Function: Rapid diffusion, filtration.


Location: Found in lung alveoli, lining of heart chambers, lumen of blood vessels, serous membranes

Skeletal

Function: Voluntary body movement and heat production.
Location: Found attached to bones 

Function: Voluntary body movement and heat production.


Location: Found attached to bones

Simple Cubodial

Function: Secretion and absorption
Location: Kidney tubules; ducts and secretory portions of small glands, ovary surface.

Function: Secretion and absorption


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

Cardiac Muscle

Function: Involuntary contraction and relaxation to pump blood
Location: Heart wall

Function: Involuntary contraction and relaxation to pump blood


Location: Heart wall

Bone

Function: Bone supports and protects
Location: Bones

Function: Bone supports and protects


Location: Bones

Hyaline Cartilage

Function: Supports and reinforces
Location: forms most of the embryonic skeleton

Function: Supports and reinforces


Location: forms most of the embryonic skeleton

Elastic Cartilage

Function: Maintains the shape of a structure while allowing great flexibility
Location: Supports external ear

Function: Maintains the shape of a structure while allowing great flexibility


Location: Supports external ear

Adipose

Function: Provides reserve fuel; insulates against heat loss; supports and protects organs
Location: Under skin, around kidneys and eyeballs, within abdomen, in breasts. 

Function: Provides reserve fuel; insulates against heat loss; supports and protects organs


Location: Under skin, around kidneys and eyeballs, within abdomen, in breasts.

Ciliated Pseudo-Stratified Columnar

Function: Secrete mucous to form a mucosal layer apical to the epithelial layer. Work in tandem with goblet cells to propel mucus away from the lungs.
Location: Tracheal and bronchial regions of the pulmonary system

Function: Secrete mucous to form a mucosal layer apical to the epithelial layer. Work in tandem with goblet cells to propel mucus away from the lungs.


Location: Tracheal and bronchial regions of the pulmonary system

Dense Irregular Collagenous

Function: Withstand tension, provide structural strength
Location: Fibrous capsules of organs and joints, dermis of skin

Function: Withstand tension, provide structural strength


Location: Fibrous capsules of organs and joints, dermis of skin

Skin



Reticular

Function: Fibers form a soft internal skeleton that supports other tissues
Location: Lymph organs, spleen, and bone marrow

Function: Fibers form a soft internal skeleton that supports other tissues


Location: Lymph organs, spleen, and bone marrow
