The type of membrane that lines a joint called is a
Sweat glands are exocrine glands.
The four major types of tissue are nervous tissue, muscle tissue, cartilage tissue, and epithelial tissue.
Stratified epithelium is often found in locations where protection is needed.
Simple squamous epithelial cells line the air sacs of the lungs.
The functions of simple cuboidal epithelium are secretion and absorption.
Because the nuclei of cells of pseudostratified columnar epithelium are located at different levels within the cells of the tissue, the tissue appears to have more than one layer.
Stratified squamous epithelium lines the mouth, vagina, and anal canal.
Stratified columnar epithelium is found lining the larger ducts of the mammary, sweat, and salivary glands.
Macrophages present in connective tissue are involved in allergic reactions.
Fat droplets are stored in cells in a specialized form of loose connective tissue called adipose tissue.
Ligaments connect muscle to bone.
Neuroglial cells support neurons and are capable of dividing.
Chondrocytes are found in cartilage and bone tissue.
The extracellular matrix of connective tissue does more than glue the body together.
Smooth muscle is voluntarily controlled.
If a sample of muscle tissue has one nucleus per cell and contracts involuntarily, it must also be striated.
The ears and nose can grow as we age.
Skeletal muscle cells are shorter than smooth muscle cells.
Many organs contain stem cells that can divide and replace damaged cells.
Serous membranes line cavities that have openings to the outside of the body.
