ClemsonUniversity Fall 2016 Tissues Slide 1: Tissues  Start with the chemical level oflife that makes upcells  Cells make uptissues  Tissue: 2ofmorecells that areeither the sameor differentthat functiontogether for acommonpurposeor tasks  Histology: Studyoftissues Slide 2: EpithelialTissue- Covering and lining  All freebodysurfacesofthebodyarecoveredwithcoveringandlining epithelial tissue  Anypart ofthebodythat is exposedto theexternalenvironmentalso havecovering andlining epithelial tissue - Mouth  Entry to ahollowtube essentially  This means that anything inside the tubeis consideredto beoutsidethe body/externalenvironment - Foodthatis chewedandswallowed is consideredto beoutsidethe body  Thereforethehollowtubeofthe digestive tract will havecoveringandlining epithelial tissue - In additionto the hollowtubeofthe digestive tract, the reproductive,digestive, respiratory,andcardiovascular tractsalso havecoveringandlining epithelium Slide 3: EpithelialTissue- Glandular  Glandular epithelial tissuemakes upglands  Ex: Adrenalgland(Sits ontop ofthekidney) *Coveringandlining and glandular epithelial tissue bothlookdifferentbecausethey do differentthings dueto their composition Slide 4: FunctionsofEpithelialTissue  Establish boundaries: - Coveringandlining epithelial tissue separatesthebodyfromtheexternal environment  Protection: - The exterior boundaryisaformofprotection - Epithelial tissue is thefirst line ofdefensethatfunctions in keepingpathogens outofthe body  Absorption: - Pathogensthat do enter thebodymust beabsorbed - Selective absorptionoccursintheformoffiltration, essential  Filtration: - Basically atype ofabsorptionbasedonsizeofsubstances o Smaller things canpasswhile larger things cannotpass  Excretion: - Substancesthat get into our bodyhaveto passthroughepithelial tissue - Therefore,substancesthatgo outofthe bodyalso haveto passthrough epithelial tissue(Excretion)  Secretion: - Sometimes epithelial tissueproducessomethingto be released - Ex: Glandular epithelium producessecretionsfromglands  Sensory reception: - Epithelial tissue hasthe ability to respondto stimuli fromthe environment - All bodysurfaceshaveepithelium onit andour bodieshaveto beable to respondto stimuli in theenvironment Slide 5: Boundariesof EpithelialTissue  Apicalsurface: - Freeandexposedto theexternalenvironment - Superficial surface  Basalsurface: - Deepportion - Away fromtheexternalenvironment - Attached to connective tissue underneathit(Why connectivetissue is called connectedtissue- Connectsonething to another)  Tissues will lookdifferentbasedonwhat their function is (Simple, squamous,etc.) - Atissue in spotofthe bodycanlookdifferentin another partofthebody Slide 6: Basement Membrane  Therecanbe modifications to the plasmamembrane - Tissues arecomposedofmultiple cells andthecells haveconnectionsbetween them - Ex: Tight junctions, desmosomes  Basallayer ofepithelial tissue: - Beforetheconnectivetissue (In betweenthe epithelial tissue andconnective tissue) thereis abasementmembrane  Basement membrane has2components: 1) Basallamina: - Portionjust at thebasalsurfaceofthe epithelium - Stained black andis thethin line - Anon-cellular sheetofglycoproteins(Proteinswith carbohydratesextending off)that canbeusedto attach to other things  Basallamina is an anchor/adhesivesheetofproteinessentialto holdthe epithelial sitting ontopof the connectivetissue in place - Basallamina also acts asa selective filter becausetheproteinscouldalso be channelproteins  Important becauseall living cells needto besuppliedwith bloodbutepithelial tissuesareavascaular (Containno bloodvessels) o Important for thebloodto bedeliveredto the basalcells ofthe epithelium in theconnective tissue whereit passesfromtheconnective tissue out throughthebasallamina to reachtheepithelial tissue because:  Bloodisneededfor glucosedelivery, picking upwaste suchas carbondioxide,etc. 2) Reticularlamina: - In thepicture, it iswherethe arrowislocated  Blurry,yellow-orange region - The reticular lamina is a collectionofcollagen fibers - Collagenis the mostabundantproteinin the body (Connective tissuesin generalhavealot offibersin them that couldbecollagen, reticular, etc.) o Collagenfunctions inproviding strength to tissues o Elastic fibersfunctionin providingstretch andflexibility o Reticular fibers:Functionasa meshnetwork that holdsthings together - Therearecollagenfibersthat strengthenthe attachment betweenthe epithelium andunderlyingreticular lamina - Overall: Reticular lamina is filled with collagenfibersfor strengthand attachment Slides 7-11:Covering and LiningEpithelium  Canclassify coveringandlining epithelium basedonthe number ofcellspresentin the tissue   Simple epithelium: - Only have1 layer ofcells - Functionin absorptionandfiltration - DoesNOT reallyprovidealot ofprotectionor other functions - Locatedinareasnotexposedto alot ofwear andtear or friction  Otherwise, simple epithelium wouldbreakapart  Stratified epithelium: - Morethan1layer ofcells - Major functionis protectionin areasexposedto alotofwear andtear and friction - Locatedonthesurfaceoftheskin - Skin is thin onthe headandthick onthe feetdueto howmuch pressurethey’re exposedto - Namestratified epithelium basedonthecells located atthe apical surface  Pseudostratified epithelium: - Only 1 cell layer thick butit lookslike morethan 1layer dueto thenuclei appearingasif theyareeveryoneandnotjust locatedat thebasal portionofthe single cell layer - Foundinpartsnot exposedto alotofmovement suchasthe lining ofthe respiratorytract Not alot offrictionor changein shapeoccurshere  Canalso define coveringandlining epithelium basedontheshapeofthecells   Squamous epithelium: - 1cell layer offlatcells  Cuboidalepithelium: - Box-like or cellsthat have thewidth thesame astheheight  Columnarepithelium: - Column-shapedor cell that aretaller than theyarewide  Transitionalepithelium: - Cells areshapedlike domesontheapical surface - Linehollow cavities suchas theurinarybladder - Whenthebladder is empty, cells aredome-shaped,butasthe bladder startsto fill up,the cells changeto aflattened shapeto allow morespacein thecavity without changing thesize ofthe cavity - Assoonasstretchoccur onthe urinarybladder,asignal issent to the brainfor the bladder to empty itself, andthe flattened cells transition backto therelaxed dome-shapeagain Slide 12:GlandularEpithelium  Composeglands  Gland:Cell or groupofcellscomposedofglandular epithelium that secrete substancesinto ductsthat takes the secretionto whereit shouldbe, onto surfacesof cells, or into thebloodfor it to travel elsewhereto do something  Wherethey secretetheir substancesdependsonthetypeofgland  It is possiblefor thereto beunicellular glandsin the body  Energyis requiredinorder to makea secretoryproduct andto secreteit (Via packaging thesecretionup somehowandgetting it out oftheepithelium)  Mostglands produceawater-basedsecretion(Somewill be fat-basedthough) Slides 13/14:Types ofGlands  Exocrine: - Glandsthat secreteinto aduct - Secretionfromtheglandular epithelial tissue is secretedinto a duct that moves fromhighto low concentration to haveits effect somewhereelse - Someexocrineglandssecreteonlyonto the exterior cellsurfacewhereit collects o Ex: Gobletcells - Ex: Sweat glandsandgallbladder  Endocrine: - Glandsthat do notsecreteinto ducts - Secretehormonesthattravel inthe bloodstreamto go somewhereelse - Ex: Thyroidglandand pancreas-Uniquebecauseit hasexocrine(Ductdelivers secretionsto small intestine) andendocrine(Secreteshormonesto regulate bloodsugar inthe bloodstream)functions Slide 15/16:StructuralClassification ofGlands  Unicellular: - Lookatthe number ofcellsthat make up thegland—Someglandscan be unicellular - Picture: o Gobletcells arepartofthe digestive system that areunicellular mucous glands o Gobletcells producemucous o Mucous:Secretion ofamucousgland that secretesmucinprotein o Mucousgoesto thesurfaceonthelining oftheGI tract andprevents digestion ofthebody’sowndigestive track - Respiratorytract: o Secretesmucousonthesurfaceofcells o Anyparticles in the air will stick to the mucousandwon’treachthe lungs *Bothfunctionsofmucoussecretionsareprotective  Multicellular: - Havemorethan 1cell - Makesthe differencebetweensimple duct structurewith no branchesandthe compoundductstructurewith branching o Asa result,onecan further classifymulticellular glandsinto different groups Slides 17/18:FunctionalClassification  Glandscanalso bebasedonhowthecell releasesits productandnotjust onwhere it goes  Merocrine glands: - Cells produce secretoryproductsthatgetpackagedin theGolgi apparatusina vesicle  Secretoryproductsgetreleasedfromthevesicle andcell via exocytosisinto theduct whereit travels whereit needsto go - Keypoints: o Merocrineglandcells arenotdamagedandstill intact after thereleaseof secretoryproducts o Merocrineglandcells stayaroundto continueto producemoresecretory products - Ex: Salivaryglands, sweat glands,andthe pancreasalluse merocrineformof activity  Holocrineglands: - Cells producesecretoryproductsthatgetstoredinaninclusion - Wholecell thensloughsoffinto theduct whereit then burstsopento releaseits contents - Keypoint: o Holocrineglandcell dies in theprocessofreleasingsecretoryproducts o Haveto replaceholocrineglandcell viamitosis asaresult - Ex: Sebaceousglands(Oil glandsassociatedwith hair)useholocrineformof activity Slide 19/20:Connective Tissue  All connective tissue isderivedfromthe sameembryonictissue, the mesenchyme (Middle embryoniclayer) althoughthey don’tall looklike eachother  4basic classesofconnectivetissue: a) Connective tissue proper: Areolar,denseregular,andelastic connective tissues b) Cartilage: Elastic cartilage, fibrocartilage,andhyaline cartilage c) Bone: Hardesttissue ofthe body d) Blood: Only liquid tissue ofthe body *All contain samestructuralelements Slide 21:StructuralElements  All connective tissue classeshavethesame structuralelements: a) Ground substance: - Backgroundsubstance - Bone:Hardbecauseitis calcified - Blood:Liquiddueto theplasma portionoftheblood b) Fibers: - Locatedinthe backgroundinthe fiber matrix - Largecollagenfibersprovidestrength - Reticular fibersallow stretch c) Cells: - All connective tissueshavetheir ownspecific types ofcells - Ex: Fibroblastsinareolar connectivetissue Slide 22:MuscleTissue  Muscle tissuecells aremodified for contraction  All types ofmusclerespondto stimuli bygetting shorter (contracting) Includes: Muscle tissueis foundin thelining ofthedigestive tract, heart, smoothmuscle, and skeletal muscle give localmotion  Whenmuscle contracts,movement occurs - Ex: Heartmuscle tissue: o Contractionofthe heartmakesbloodmove - Ex: Smoothmuscletissue: o Contractionpushesameal throughthedigestive tract  Whenmuscle tissuecontracts, heatis generated(Althoughmot heatthat is generatedisthroughmetabolic action throughthefoodconsumed) - Specifically, shiveringis anexample that requiresmuscletissue andcontractsto generateheat  All muscle tissue contains: - Sarcolemma: Plasma membraneofamuscle cell madeupofa phospholipid bilayer - Sarcoplasm:Cytoplasm ofamuscle cell Slide 24-27:MuscleTissue Types  Overall classification criteria usedto differentiateonetype ofmusclefromanother: - Striations - Nervouscontrol-Voluntaryor involuntary - Number ofnuclei  Skeletal MuscleTissue: - Striated - Eachmuscle fiber is amuscle cell that all runright nextto eachother very compactly andlooklike lanesona highway - Multi-nucleated - Embryologicaldevelopment: o One cell emergeswith another onethenanother oneemergesso that eventually they all combine  Nuclei in the musclecells end upgetting pushedtowardstheedgesandarenotlocated in themiddle ofthe cell - Voluntary Humanis ableto determinewhen andhowmuch skeletal muscle tissue contracts - Summary: Skeletal muscle tissue isstriated, multi-nucleated, andvoluntary  Cardiac MuscleTissue: - Striated - Uni-nucleated - Involuntarycontraction and movement - Contain intercalateddiscs: o Communicating junctions that arelocatedbetween neighboringcells o Specifically: Channelproteinofonecell +channel proteinofanother cell fusetogether to createa connexon,whichultimately createsagap junction (Communicating junction) o Important becauseifthe compositionis changedinoneofthe neighboringcells, that certain componentthatwas changedcanalso be put in theconnectedneighboringcells  AKAall arelinked together  Ex: Musclecontractswhen it is excited  Stimuli that excites one cell is sharedwith theother connectedcells downthe line o Overall: Cardiactissues contractsasa unit dueto intercalated discs rather than justas individual cells  Smooth MuscleTissue: - SmoothandNOT striated - Uni-nucleated - Nuclei appear stretchin individual cells - Appearssimilar to denseregular connectivetissue - Involuntarycontractionand movement Slides 28-20:Nervous Tissue  Neurons: - Allows the humanbodyto detect stimuli - Turnstimulus energyinto electrical energythat is then communicated throughoutthebody - 50%ofnervoustissueis consistedofneurons (Cells) that createelectrical impulses  Neuroglia: - Rest ofthenervoustissuein thebackgroundis madeupofneuroglia,which means“nerveglue” - Cells that functionin holding all theneuronstogether +functionin supportand protection(Protects theimpulse createdbythe neurons) Slide 29:Summary of Tissue Types  Epithelial  Connective  Muscle  Nervous
