TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION GLANDULAR EPITHELIUM -Function: SECRETION -Often lie in clusters deep to the covering and lining epithelium -A gland may consist of a single cell or a group of cells that secrete substances into ducts, onto a surface, or into the blood
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION > Endocrine Glands -Diffuse substances directly into the bloodstream without flowing through a duct -Secretions are called hormones, which regulate chemical reactions in the body
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION > Exocrine Glands -Secrete their substances into ducts that empty onto a surface such as skin or lumen -Examples of substances: sweat, oil, earwax, saliva, enzymes
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION CONNECTIVE TISSUE -ranges in consistency from the gel-like softness of areolar connective tissue to the hardness of bone -Blood is also a connective tissue -Connective tissue (CT) forms an extensive compartment in the body and can be considered as the "glue" that holds the body together
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION Types of Connective Tissue: 1. Fibroblasts – are large, flat cells with branching processes. They are usually the most numerous. They migrate through the connective tissue, secreting the fibers and ground substance of the extracellular matrix
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION 2. Macrophages – are capable of engulfing bacteria and cellular debris by phagocytosis Fixed macrophages - reside in specific tissues Wandering macrophages - can move throughout the tissues where inflammation and infection are located
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION 3. Plasma cells – small cells that develop from immune cells called Blymphocytes. They secrete antibodies. 4. Mast cells – abundant alongside the blood vessels that supply connective tissue. They produce histamine, a chemical that influences inflammatory response. They can also engulf bacteria.
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION 5. Adipocytes – also called fat cells or adipose cells. They store triglycerides as a reserve source of energy 6. White blood cells – they migrate from blood into the connective tissue during infection or allergic reactions.
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION EMBRYONIC CONNECTIVE TISSUE Mesenchyme - composed of irregularly shaped cells, a semifluid ground substance, and delicate reticular fibers. - Function: forms all other types of connective tissue - present in the embryo
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION Mucous connective tissue - found mainly in the umbilical cord of the fetus - Function: supports the 2 arteries and 1 vein in the umbilical cord - also called Wharton’s jelly
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION MATURE CONNECTIVE TISSUE LOOSE CONNECTIVE TISSUE - Loosely intertwined between cells 1. Areolar - Most widely distributed - All types of fibers (collagen, elastic, reticular) are arranged randomly throughout the tissue - Combined with adipose tissue, they form the SUBCUTANEOUS LAYER of the skin
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION 2. Adipose - Contain adipocytes - Good insulator that reduces heat loss through the skin - Protection for various organ - Energy reserve White Adipose Tissue - usually found in adults Brown Adipose Tissue - Has very rich blood supply
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION 3. Reticular - Forms the stroma (supporting tissue) of the liver, spleen, and lymph nodes - Helps bind together smooth muscle cells - Also removes worn out cells and bacteria
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION DENSE CONNECTIVE TISSUE - More numerous thicker and denser fibers, but fewer cells 1. Dense Regular - Bundles of collagen are regularly arranged in parallel patterns to provide great strength to tissues - Fibroblasts appear in rows between the fibers - Tissues are silvery white and tough. Ex. Tendons, ligaments
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION 2. Dense Irregular - Contains collagen fibers that are packed more tightly together and irregularly arranged - Found in parts of the body where pulling forces are exerted in various directions - Ex. Dermis of the skin, pericardium of the heart
TISSUE LEVEL OF ORGANIZATION 3. Elastic - Contains branching elastic fibers that gives the tissue a yellow color - Fibroblasts are present between the fibers - Very strong and recoils to original shape after being stretched - Ex. Lungs, arteries
