Question describe the different types of epithetical tissue including structure function, and location.
Answer: there are many types of epithetical tissue with many different functions in different parts of the body that do many different things working together to do there job to maintain these conclusions, first off theres the simple squamous: known as a single layer commonly very flat known for filitration and & absorption found in the lungs and blood vessels, known as the circulatory system. The stratified epithelia has 2 or more cells on top of each other this is known for protection such as the skin and mouth, simple cubodial: these tend to be bigger and have a box shape known excretion and absorption play a big part known to be found in the glands ducts, and portion of the kidney tubles, simple columnar: one layer very tall and skinny known for absorption and secrtetion can be found in the digestive tract to the stomach and rectum. Psuedostratified columnar looks like there is many cells however there is only one layer of cells, known for secreting and absorbing can e found in the respitory tract, stratified squamous: there are many layers of cells tend to look tiles built up known to be the most talked about can be known as the external part of protection for skin and goes through all body openings. Next is stratified columnar: has 2 layers of cells is known to be very rare can be found in the in ducts of sweat and mammary glands, transitional: known to be many layers of cells tend to change in shape can be cubodial or columnar can be found in the urinary bladder,renal pelvis and ureatha. Glandalur: one or more cells known for secreting different enzymes and hormones, could be in the sweat salivary and adrenal glands
Transitional epithelium can be talked about more in detail this type of epithelium can be further expanded they can be stretched and flattened in hence the bladder and calyx, can expand known as a special type of epithelium....
