Specialised Tissues

HideShow resource information
Squamous Epithelium
Made of squamous cells, flat and very thin, one cell thick (fast diffusion), lining of the lungs and other places which require rapid diffusion
1 of 7
Ciliated Epithelium
Made up of ciliated epithelial cells and goblet cells (cells which expel mucous), cilia which rhythmically together (removes dust and mucous to be expelled)
2 of 7
Cartilage
Connective tissue, made up of chondrocyte cells and fibres of collagen and elastin (in the extracellular matrix), flexible and firm, found in ear nose and end of bones (prevents bones from rubbing and damaging)
3 of 7
Muscle
Moves bones and parts of the body, made up of muscle fibres, skeletal muscle fibres (the fibres attached to the bone, contain myofibrils which are contractile proteins)
4 of 7
Epidermis
Surface of plants, waxy cuticles to stop water loss, stomata are also present in the epidermis
5 of 7
Xylem Tissue
Vascular tissue, transports water, consists of vessel elements (elongated hollow cells), walls of cells are strengthened with lignin (provides structural support)
6 of 7
Phloem Tissue
Vascular tissue, transports organic nutrients (sucrose), columns of sieve tube cells with perforated walls called sieve plates. Has companion cells to assist with metabolic activity.
