What is the function of Ciliated cells?
To beat mucus.
1 of 20
How do Ciliated cells work?
They have small extensions of the cell which beat back and forward very quickly to beat mucus.
2 of 20
What do gland cells produce?
Mucus
3 of 20
What does Ciliated Mucous Membrane do.
Germs and dust are caught in mucus, mucus is taken away by the cilia.
4 of 20
What shape is a red blood cell? Why?
It is a biconcave disc shape to increase the surface area.
5 of 20
What does a red blood cell not have that most cells do have? Why?
No nucleus so there is more room for haemoglobin.
6 of 20
What is haemoglobin?
It is a protein that carries oxygen molecules
7 of 20
What does epithelial tissue do?
Lines tubes, spaces, and skin.
8 of 20
What does connective tissue do?
It connects and binds other tissues.
9 of 20
What does skeletal tissue do?
It supports and protects body, and allows movement.
10 of 20
Which tissue carries oxygen and food substances around body?
Blood tissue.
11 of 20
What does nerve tissue do?
It transmits and coordinates messages to the brain.
12 of 20
What does muscle tissue do?
It allows movement.
13 of 20
How is muscle tissue specialised?
It has many nuclei to produce protein. The strands of protein slide over each, shortening the cell and causing the muscle to contract.

Now for tissues in plants...
....
15 of 20
What does epidermal tissue do?
It lines spaces and protects the surface of the plant
16 of 20
What does Photosynthetic tissue do?
It gives the plant nutrition through photosynthesis.
17 of 20
Which tissue fills spaces in plants?
Parenchyma tissue
18 of 20
What tissue transports water and food?
Vascular tissue.
19 of 20
What does strenthening tissue do?
It supports and strengthens plant.
