  1. Connective Tissue
    General Functions:
    • Supports softer organs of body
    • Connects parts of body
    • Stores fat
    • Produces Blood Cells
  2. Connective Tissue
    General Funtions cont..
    Contains Cells embedded in non living extracellular Matrix provides the strenghth
  3. Connective Tissue
    General Functions :TWO TYPES
    • Fibrous
    • Special
  4. Fibrous Connective Tissue
    Provides strength and elasticity
  5. Fibrous Connective Tissue
    fibers and cells embedded in gel-like ground substance (matrix)
  6. Fibrous Connective Tissue
    Fibroblasts, Macrophages,Lymphocytes, and neutrophhils
  7. Fibrous Connective Tissue
    Collagen,elastic and reticular
  8. Fibrous Connective Tissue
    Four general types:
    • Loose
    • DenseElastic
    • Reticular
  9. Fibrous Connective Tissue
    Four general type
    • Surrounds many organs, lines cavities around blood vessels
    • Fills spaces between organs, cushioning and protecting them
    • Low density meshwork of collagen elastin and fibroblast cells
  10. Fibrous Connective Tissue
    Four general types
    • Forms tendons, ligaments, deeper layers of skin
    • Have a much Higher content of bibers organized much more densely
  11. FYI: loose connective tissue (x160). In Loose connective tissue the collagen and elastin fibers are arrayed in random Pattern.
  12. FYI: Dense connective tissue (x160). In dense connective tissues the fibers are primarily collagen fibers. In tendons and ligaments the fibers are oriented all in the same direction. with fibroblasts occupying narrow spaces between adjacent fibers.
  13. Fibrous Connective Tissue
    Four general types
    • surrounds stomach and bladder, maintains shape
    • composed in large part of elastic fibers
  14. Fibrous Connective Tissue
    Four genarl types
    • Makes up internal framework of soft organs (liver) and the Lympathic System
    • Reticular fibers produced by fibroblast known as reticular cells!
  15. Specialized Connective Tissues Serve Special Functions
    • No blood vesseles; high collagen content
    • provides support and cusion between joints
  16. Specialized Connective Tissues Serve Special Functions
    in organic matrix with calcium salts for hardness- provide framework
  17. Specialized Connective Tissues Serve Special Functions
    • Fluid matrix of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
    • Are the Transport Tissue of mammals
  18. Specialized Connective Tissues Serve Special Functions
    • Fat cells
    • Function in insulation, protection, and energy storage
  19. FYI Cartilage from the trachea (x300)Mature cartilage cells called CHONDROCYTES , become trapped in chambers called LACUNAE within the hard, rubbery ground substance. Ground substance is composed of collagen fibers, Polysaccharides, proteins and water.
  20. Adipose Tissue from the substancutaneous layer under the skin(x140) Adipose tissue consits almost entirely of fat cells. The fat deposit within a fat cell can become so large that the nucleus is pushed to the side.
  21. diahpram is located betwwen the trachea and the abdomen
