What are some examples of connective tissue?
Connective tissues are based on fibrous proteins, and include
bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments,
and adipose tissue (stores fat). Blood and
lymph are generally classified as "fluid connective tissue"
although they do not have a fixed structure and are normally
constrained by epithelial cells, such as those lining the blood
Connective tissue may or may not be avascular - it depends on the composition of the connective tissue. Avascular tissue is any tissue that does not contain blood vessels or lymphatics. Examples include epithelial tissue layers and the cornea. Elastic fibers, a form of connective tissue is avascular, but muscle is vascular.
It depends. there are four types of tissue, connective tissue, nervous, muscle and epithelial tissue. some examples are.. Connective tissue: adipose, areolar, dense regular, dense irregular Epithelial: simple squamous, stratified squamous, simple columnar, stratified columnar, simple cuboidal, stratified cuboidal, pseudostratified columnar, and transtional
No. There are 4 types of tissue; epithelial, connective, muscle, and neural tissue. Connective tissue is used as a filler, for support, storage, and insulation. Muscle tissue is different in that impulses create contraction, which causes movement. While skeletal muscle and connective tissue may share some traits (support, insulation to some degree), they are different in form and function.
Cells group together in the body to form tissues - a collection of similar cells that group together to perform a specialized function. There are 4 primary tissue types in the human body: epithelial tissue, connective tissue, muscle tissue and nerve tissue. Epithelial Tissue - The cells of epithelial tissue pack tightly together and form continuous sheets that serve as linings in different parts of the body. Epithelial tissue serve as membranes lining organs and…
