How does cartilage function?
Cartilage has bone marrow, so therefore it connects bones to bones in the skeletal system.
The function of hyaline cartilage is to provide flexible support.
The function of the hyaline cartilage is to support the moveable joints between the bones.
cartilage is what holds your knee together.
Cartilage keeps bronchi open
The function of this cartilage is as an attachment for the vocal chords or folds so allowing and assisting in their movement.
The function of cartilage in the bronchus is to hold the soft tissue open so that air may pass through. The cartilage in the bronchus are C-shaped rings.
The three groups of cartilage: hyaline cartilage, fibrocartilage and elastic cartilage serve a supportive function to maintain an optimal anatomical position for an organ or to shield it from trauma. E.g. the c-shaped cartilage anterior to the trachea protects it from trauma, and the ear itself (which is mostly cartilage) keeps the ear in the optimal sound-recieving shape.
Articular cartilage is cartilage which covers the surface of the bone in synovial joints. Its function is to reduce friction between the bones. It is a type of cartilage called hyaline cartilage.
the function is to protect the trachea from collapsing
Cartilage acts as a buffer, a "spring", and a lubricant surface between joints.
The cartilage is there to stop bone rubbing against bone. It performs like a lubricant.
Cartilage pads act as shock absorbers and allow for smooth movement between bones.
To hold something permanently open (such as the trachea, which is held open for breathing by rings of cartilage).
Cartilage in a joint acts as a cushion and helps prevent wear on the ends of the bones.
it gives support to the trachea
Yes i do have a large erection
This may not be correct, but i have been told that cartilage is to stop joints from rubbing together and getting worn out.
The rib cartilage is called the costal cartilage and it has 2 main purposes. It makes the walls of the thorax more elastic and it serves to prolong the ribs forward.
cartilage rings give support to trachea to open all the time
Articular cartilage is hyaline cartilage that covers the surface of each bone in a joint. It allows smooth movement in that joint.
It varies. It can serve the same function as bone (note all bones begin as cartilage). Flexable (slightly) connection between bones. (see ribs) To give shape to protrusions (see nose & ears).
The function of hyaline cartilage is to provide flexible support. It has great tensile strength (due to the collagen) and is highly resistant to pressure (due to the ground substance). Hyaline cartilage provides a framework for the developing embryo prior to the appearance of bone. Later, it supplies the mechanism by which bones grow in length.
because i said so, thats why, and your mom.
The function of the xiphoid process is to attach the cartilage in the celiac plexus to the sternum. It also indirectly attaches the costal cartilage to the sternum.
Calcified Cartilage provides the framework in which bone is deposited. (*source Body of Evidence science book. ((Answers in Genesis)) bodyofevidence.org*)
In most cases, for adults, cartilage usually sits on ends of bones to prevent friction between other bones. -JoshuaP
To produce cartilage needed for bone growth
The protein collagen is very important in cartilage integrity and function
to support trachea
It serves as the gelatinous material of cartilage.
Cartilage is soft because of its construction and function as connective tissue. It contains a matrix full of chondrocytes and strong collagen fibers that add to its suppleness and flexibility.
The thyroid cartilage forms the bulk of the anterior wall of the larynx, and serves to protect the vocal folds ("vocal cords") which are located directly behind it.
Cartilage is a type of connective tissue that is used to support organs in the body. It is less rigid than bone (i.e. elastic cartilage) and is more flexible.
Cartilage in the respiratory system (usually found in the trachea and some small amounts in the bronchi), is to act as a way to keep the passageways open.
Helps transmitting loads from the cartilage into the underlying cancellous bone.
To cusion the bones from rubbing and smacking on each other. It also allows gliding motions. The main function of the articular cartilage is to provide a smooth surface where the bones connect and touch. It also lubricates that area and makes sure there is low friction.
Cartilage acts as a cushion and reduces the friction between the bones and in some cases holds bones together, like rib cartilage. Cartilage is found in between bones, in the nose, ears and intervertebral discs just to name a few.
Elastic cartilage is found predominately in the external ear and as well as around the epiglottis. Elastic cartilage is similar to hyaline cartilage, but its matrix contains many elastic fibers along with the delicate collagen fibrils. This cartilage is more elastic than hyaline cartilage and better able to tolerate repeated bending. The epiglottis, which bends down to cover the glottis (opening) of the larynx each time we swallow, is made of elastic cartilage, as is… Read More
The cartilage in the tail is what helps propel the Tiger Shark's tail forward.
It provides support and rigidity to structures of the musculoskeletal system. It is the strongest type of cartilage.
keeps the trachea open when the head is bent or turned
Fibrocartilage tissue provides support and rigidity to attached/surrounding structures.
Cartilage rings are placed along the wind pipe. They are incomplete. They are there so that wind pipe should not collapse. They are incomplete that wind pipe should be able to contract or relax.
Inter-vertebral discs in the spine are made of cartilage. Their primary function is to aid in flexibility and movement in the spine and cut down on friction between vertebrae.
flap of cartilage that close when u swallow to prevent food from going down your trachea (windpipe)
bone tissue, cartilage, moving smoothly, movable joints, immovable joints
The function of synovial fluid is to reduce friction between the articular cartilage of synovial joints during movement. Synovial fluid has an egg yolk-like consistency.
Articular cartilage or Hyaline cartilage is connective tissue made up of strong collagen fibres. It provides a protection over the ends of bone and reduces friction where the bone forms an articulation (joint), hence the name articular. It also acts as a shock absorber.
It contains ring like structure that are a bit hard to prevent the trachea to collapse during breathing.
