What binds tissues of the body together?
Connective tissues bind structures together, form a framework and support for organs and the body as a whole, store fat, transport substances, protect against disease, and help repair tissue damage.
Which tissues connect bind and pack body parts together?
Areolar tissue, a type of loose connective tissue, binds organs together. You can find this type of connective tissue beneath the skin and between muscles, according to Midlands Technical College. Adipose tissues, which are loose connective tissues, store fat that the body can use as energy and insulation.
What tissues support and bind other tissues?
Functions of Connective Tissues
Connective tissues perform many functions in the body, but most importantly, they support and connect other tissues; from the connective tissue sheath that surrounds muscle cells, to the tendons that attach muscles to bones, and to the skeleton that supports the positions of the body.
What type of tissue is simple and stratified?
Based on the cell shape, epithelial tissue is classified into squamous, cuboidal or columnar. Depending on the number of layers, the tissue is divided into simple or stratified.
What tissue holds organs in place?
Loose connective tissue
Loose connective tissue works to hold organs in place and is made up of extracellular matrix and collagenous, elastic and reticular fibers. Dense connective tissue is what makes up tendons and ligaments and consist of a higher density of collagen fibers.
How are epithelial tissues classified and held together?
Epithelial tissues are classified according to the shape of the cells composing the tissue and by the number of cell layers present in the tissue.
What is stratified epithelial tissue?
Epithelium: Stratified Epithelia
Stratified epithelia contain two or more layers of cells. The function of this type of epithelium is mostly protective – the higher the number of layers, the more protective it is. It is good at withstanding abrasion. This type of epithelium is constantly renewing itself.
