Location: Simple Squamous Epithelium
Lines heart, blood vessels, air sacs of lungs, glomerular capsule of kidneys, and inner surface of the tympanic membrane (eardrum)

forms epithelial layer of serous membranes (such as peritoneum)
Location: Stratified Squamous Epithelium
Keratinized: forms superficial layer of skin

Non Keratinized: lines wet surfaces (ex: lining of mouth, esophagus, vagina)
Location: Simple Cuboidal Epithelium
Covers surface of ovary, lines anterior surface of capsule of the lens of the eye, forms pigmented epithelium at back of the eye, lines kidney tubules, makes secreting portion of some glands
Location: Loose Areolar c.t
subcutaneous (located or placed just beneath the skin) layer deep to skin, papillary region of dermis of skin, lamina propria of mucous membranes and around blood vessels, nerves and body organs
Location: Simple Columnar Epithelium
lines the gastrointestinal tract from the stomach to the anus, ducts of many glands and the gall bladder
Location: Adipose C.T
subcutaneous (located or placed just beneath the skin) layer deep to skin, around heart and kidneys, yellow bone marrow and padding around joints and behind eyeball in eye socket
Location: Ciliated pseudostratified epithelium
lines the airways of most of upper respiratory tract, lines larger ducts, and part of the male urethra
Location: Reticular C.T
Stroma of liver, spleen, lymph nodes, red bone marrow, reticular lamina of basement membrane, and around blood vessels and muscles
Location: Transitional Epithelium
lines urinary bladder and portions of ureter and urethra
Location: Dense Regular C.T
Forms tendons, most ligaments, and aponeuroses
Function: Simple Squamous Epithelium
Filtration, diffusion, osmosis and secretion
Function: Simple Cuboidal Epithelium
Secretion and absorption
Function: Simple Columnar Epithelium
Secretion and absorption
Function: Ciliated pseudostratified epithelium
Secretion and movement of mucus by ciliary action
Function: Transitional Epithelium
Permits distension (expanding)
Function: Stratified Squamous Epithelium
Function: Loose Areolar C.T
Strength, elasticity and support
Function: Adipose C.T
Reduces heat loss through skin, serves as an energy reserve, supports and protects

in newborns- brown adipose tissue generates considerable heat that helps maintain proper body temperature
Function: Reticular C.T
Forms stroma of organs; binds together smooth muscle tissue cells; filters and removes worn-out blood cells in the spleen and microbes in lymph nodes
Function: Dense Regular C.T
Provides Strong Attachment between various structures
