Summary of Membranous Epithelial Tissue
Simple Ep ithelia
Single layer of cells.
Function varies with
Covering visceral organs; lining of body
cavities, tubes and ducts.
Simple squamous epithelium
single layer of flattened tightly bound cell.
Diffusion and filtration.
Capillary wall; pulmonary alveoli of lungs;
covering visceral organs; lings of body
Simple cuboidal epithelium
Single layer of cube-shaped cells.
Excretion, secretion or
Surface of ovaries; linings of renal tubes,
salivary ducts, and pancreatic duct.
Simple columnar epithelium
Single layer of nonciliated tall columnshaped cells.
Protection, secretion and
Lining of most of GI tract.
Simple ciliated columnar epithelium
Single la yer of ciliated, column shaped
Transportive role through
ciliary motion.
Lining of uterine tube.
Psuedostratified ciliated columnar
Single la yer of ciliated, irregularly shaped
cells; many goblet cells.
Protection, secretion,
ciliary movement.
Lining of respiratory passageways.
Stra tified Epithelia
Two or more layer of cells.
Function varies with
Epidermal layer of skin; lining of body
openings, ducts and urinary bladder.
Stratified squamous epithelium
Numerous layers containing keratin, with
outer layer flatted and dead (flaking).
Epidermis of skin.
Stratified squamous epithelium
Numerous layers lacking keratin, with
outer layer moistened and alive.
Protection and pliability.
Lining of oral and nasal cavities, vagina and
anal canal.
Stratified cuboidal epithelium
Usually two layer of cube shaped cells.
Strengthening of luminal
Large ducts of sweat glands, salivary glands
and pancreas.
Transitional epithelium
Numerous layers of rounded,
nonkeratinized cells.
Walls of ureters, part of urethra, and urinary
Summary of Connective Tissue Proper
Loose connective (areolar) tissue
Predomin antly fibroblast cells with lesser
amounts of collagen and elastin proteins.
Binds organs , holds tissue
Surroundin g nerves and vessels, between muscles,
beneath skin.
Dense regular connective tissue
Densely packed collagenous fibers that run
parallel to the direction of force.
Provides strong flexible
Tendons, liga ments.
Dense irregular connective tissue
Densely packed collag enous fibers ar ranged
in a tight interwoven pattern.
Provides tensile strength
in any direction.
Dermis of skin, fibrous capsules of organs an d joints,
periosteum of bone.
Elastic connective tissue
Predominantly irregularly arranged elastic
Supports, provides
Large arteries, lower respiratory tract, between the
arches of th e vertebrae.
Reticular connective tissue
Reticul ar fibers th at form a sup porti ve
Stores, performs
phagocytic function.
Lymph n odes, liver, spleen , thymus, bon e mar row.
Adipose tissue
Adipose cells.
Protects, stores fat,
Hypodermis of skin, surface of heart, omentum, around
kidneys, back of eyeball, surroun ding joints.
Summary of Cartilage
Hyaline cartilage
Homogeneous matrix with extremely fine
collagenous fibers.
Provides flexible support, protects,
is precursor to bone.
Articular surfaces of bones, nose, walls of
respiratory passages, fetal skeleton.
Fibroca rtilage
Abundant collagenous fibers within matrix.
Suppor ts, withstands compression.
Symphysis pubis, intervertebral discs, knee joint.
Elastic cartilage
Abundant elastic fibers with matrix.
Suppor ts, pr ovides flexibility.
Framework of outer ear, auditory canal, portions
of larynx.
Summ ary of M uscle T issue
Smooth Muscle
Elongated, spindle-shaped fiber with single nucleus.
Involuntary movements of internal organs.
Walls of hollow internal organs.
Cardiac Muscle
Branched striated fiver with single nucleus and
intercalated discs.
Involuntary rhythmic contra ction.
Heart wall.
Skeletal Muscle
Multinucleated, striated, cylindrical fiber that
occurs in fasciculi.
Voluntary movement of skeletal parts
Associated with skeleton, spans joints
of skeleton via tendons.

glands, sebaceous glands.
1. Tubular
Aid in Digestion
Intestinal glands
2. Branched tubular
Protect, aid in digestion
Uterine glands, gastric glands
3. Coiled tubular
