    • o Glycogen
    • ? Provides energy or food reserve
    • o Melanin
    • ? Protects from UV light
    • o Lipids
    • ? Provide energy and good; protects organs, insulation
  18. Tissue
    = aggregate of similarly specialized cells along with the extracellular material united to perform a particular function
  19. Connective tissue functions are:
    Covering and lining the epithelium and glandular epithelium
  20. Basement membrane
    An amorphous material secreted partly by epithelia cells and connective cells that lie adjacent to each other
  21. Epithelium definition
    Tissue composed of closely packed cells with little to no intercellular substance
  22. What are the two types of epithelium?
    �Glandular� & �Covering & lining�
  23. Cells are tightly packed and held together by
    Junctonal complexes
  24. General functions of epithelial tissues?
    Protection, absorption, secretion, excretion
  25. Simple
    One layer of cells
  26. Stratified
    Two or more layers of cells
  27. Pseudostratified (looks like)
    All cells touch the BL but only some cells reach the free surface
  28. Squamous(looks like)
  29. Cuboidal (looks like)
    As tall as it is wide
  30. Columnar (looks like)
    Taller then it is wide
  31. Transitional (looks like)
    Shape changes as organ stretches or releases
  32. Simple squamous epithelium e.g.
    Boumans capsule (kidney), Alveoli (Lung), endothelium (blood vessels)
  33. Function of simple squamous epithelium
    Filtration, diffusion secretion
  34. Simple cuboidal epithelium e.g.
    Renal tubules, ducts of small glands�
  35. Function of simple cuboidal epithelium
    Secretion & absorption
  36. Pseudostratified columnar epithelium with cilia (looks like)
    All the cells touch the BL but they do not all reach the free surface; cells at the free surface are taller then wide an they have cilia
  37. Stratified squamous epithelium (looks like)
    Many layers of cells; cells at the free surface are flat
  38. Stratified squamous epithelium e.g.
    Epidermis of skin (keratinized (cells at free surface lack a nucleus), lines mouth, esophagus (nonkeratinized (cells at FS with nuclei).
  39. Function of stratified squamous epithelium
  40. Stratified cuboidal epithelium (looks like)
    Many layers of cells; cells are the free surface are as tall as they are wide
  41. Stratified cuboidal epithelium.
    Usually 2 rows, ducts of sweat glands
  42. Stratified cuboidal epithelium function
  43. Stratified columnar epithelium looks like
    Many layers of cells; cells at the free surface are taller then wide
  44. Stratified transitional epithelium looks like
    Many layers of cells; cells are the free surface change their shape (when organism is relaxed, cells at the free surface have a dome shape.
  45. Glandular epithelium
    Cells are specialized for secretion; cells are closely packed and appear to be similar in structure; a free surface is difficult to see
