Plasma White blood cells 50 mm Loose connective tissue EPITHELIAL TISSUE Epithelium: forms interactive surfaces with environment on external and internal body surfaces; functions as barriers Formed from continuous sheets of tightly packed cells Covers outside of body; or lines body cavities and

organs Avascular; no blood vessels; the blood vessels that supply nutrients and remove waste are in adjacent connective tissue (diffusion) Apical surface Basal surface Figure 32.2-1 Lumen 10 mm Apical surface Epithelial tissue Basal surface

Epithelial tissue 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. CELL SHAPES AND ARRANGEMENT OF LAYERS OF EPITHELIUM Squamous epithelium: flat; look like floor tiles Their thinness allows rapid movement of substances through them by diffusion Cuboidal epithelium: boxlike; look like dice Produces important secretions Columnar epithelium: tall, pillarlike; some have cilia Protects underlying tissue Functions in absorption of nutrients and secretions (digestive juices) Simple epithelium: 1 layer of cells Stratified epithelium: 2 or more layers Pseudostratified epitheium: 1 layer of a mixture of cell shapes; looks like multiple layers, but it isnt. Not all cells reach the cell surface; the

ones that do are either ciliated or secrete mucus. EXAMPLES OF EPITHELIUM Simple Squamous Epithelium: alveoli; lines blood vessels; surface layer of many membranes EXAMPLES OF EPITHELIUM (CONTD) Simple Cuboidal Epithelium: kidney tubules; major glands; lines tubules.sweat ducts; thyroid and salivary glands EXAMPLES OF EPITHELIUM (CONTD) Simple Columnar Epithelium: Non-ciliated: lines inner portion of GIT; mucusproducing goblet cells found here Ciliated: Fallopian tubules (oviducts) EXAMPLES OF EPITHELIUM (CONTD) Stratified Squamous Epithelium: protects underlying

tissues where there is abrasion/wear and tear; I.e. outermost layer of skin, lines mouth, esophagus, vagina, anus EXAMPLES OF EPITHELIUM (CONTD) Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelium: forms mucus membranes that line nasal passages; ciliated (oviducts) or mucus-producing respiratory tract) CONNECTIVE TISSUE Connective tissue: connects and supports other tissues 6 major types:Characterized by few cells suspended in extracellular matrix (background materials of fibers Matrix may be liquid, gel, or ground solid Loose Connective Tissue Attaches epithelia to underlying tissues Holds organs in packing material Consists of a loose weave of 2 kinds of cells and 3 types of

protein fibers Fibroblasts: secrete the proteins (collagen and elastin) of the fibers Macrophages: perform phagocytosis for immune system NOTE: -blast is a cell that is making something -clast is a cell breaking down something -cyte is a mature cell Collaginous fibers: great tensile strength; no stretching Elastic fibers: stretchy Reticular fibers: strength LOOSE CONNECTIVE TISSUE NOTE: collagen is the protein for structure and strength; elastin is the protein for stretch/elasticity ADIPOSE TISSUE Adipose tissue: loose connective tissue specialized to

store fat in adipose cells; insulates body; long-term fuel molecule (fat) Each adipose cell called an adipocyte; has 1 large fat droplet Varies in size as fats are stored or utilized for energy FIBROUS CONNECTIVE TISSUE Fibrous CT: dense bundles of large numbers of collaginous fibers (strength/structure) imparts non-elastic strength Found in tendons.attach muscle to bone I.e. Achilles tendon Found in ligaments..attach bone to bone at joints; I.e. ACL Nucleus of fibroblast Collagen fiber

CARTILAGE Cartilage: connective tissue that is both strong and flexible Composed of collaginous fibers embedded in a rubbery matrix called chondroitin sulfate (a rubbery proteincarbohydrate ground substance) Avascular and without nerves Chondrocytes: cartilage cells; secrete both collagen and condroitin sulfate; confined to lacuna (scattered spaces in the condroitin sulfate) Comprises skeleton of all vertebrate embryos.retained

in some vertebrates (sharks) as cartilaginous adult skeleton Most vertebrates replace if (ossify) with bone Cartilage still retained in vertebrate adults as nose, ears, trachea, epiglottis, ribs, intervertebral discs, ends of long bones CARTILAGE (CONTINUED) Lacuna Chondroitin sulfate BONES Bones: mineralized connective tissue Osteoblasts: bone-forming cells Deposit a matrix of collagen and calcium phosphate:

hardens into the mineral hydroyapatite; makes bones hard, not brittle Bone consists of repeatiing units called Osteons or Haversian Systems Concentric layers (lamella) of hydroxyapatite matrix around a central canal of blood vessels and nerves Between the layers (lamella) are spaces (lacuna) which contain osteocytes In long bones, only the outer are is hard/compact Inner area is filled with spongy bone tissue called marrow Red bone marrow is where blood cells are made BONES (CONTINUED) Osteons Osteocyte

Balancing Heat Loss and Gain Organisms exchange heat by 4 physical processes Radiation Evaporation Convection Conduction Heat is always transferred from an object of higher temperature to one of lower temperature 2016 Pearson Education, Inc.

Figure 32.14 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Radiation Evaporation Convection Conduction Circulatory Adaptations for Thermoregulation In response to changes in environmental temperature, animals can alter blood (hence heat) flow between their body core and surface Vasodilation, the widening of the diameter of superficial blood vessels, promotes heat loss

Vasoconstriction, the narrowing of the diameter of superficial blood vessels, reduces heat loss 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Figure 32.15 The arrangement of blood vessels in many marine mammals and birds allows for countercurrent exchange Countercurrent heat exchangers transfer heat between fluids

PLASMA MEMBRANES All animals regulate their water and electrolyte levels within their cells. All animals must balance their water intake/output as well as solutes (also called ions or electrolytes) for homeostasis Cell membranes and sheets of cells are selectively permeable membranes Allow the passage of water, but restrict or control the movement of many solutes Cell membranes are lipid bilayers with embedded proteins Plasma Membranes Contd Cross the membrane easily: Nonpolar/hydrophobic molecules..such as HC and O2 Small polar molecules.such as H2O and CO2 Cross by diffusion.the spontaneous, net movement of a substance DOWN its concentration gradient (from

higher concentration to lower concentration) 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Osmosis Special type of diffusion: the diffusion of water through a semipermeable membrane Spontaneous and passive; water moves from an area of [greater H2O] (or low solute concentration) to its area of [lower H 2O] (or higher solute concentration) Expressed as osmolarity: moles of solute/liter of H2O; Higher osmolarity: more solutes (more concentrated) I.e. osmolarity of human blood is 300 mosms/L while seawater is 1,000 mosm/L Osmotic pressure: pressure by water as it moves from one solution to another Osmoregulation: regulation of water and solute levels to control osmotic pressure inside cells or organisms; a type of homeostasis;

humans balance the gain and loss of water and solutes (ions, electrolytes), because blood cant be too thick Osmosis Hypo Hyper Figure 32.17-1 Osmoregulation in a Marine Fish Gain of water and salt ions from food Excretion of salt ions

Salt FRESH WATER 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Excretion of salt ions and large amounts of water in dilute urine from kidneys Osmoregulators Marine and freshwater organisms have opposite challenges Marine fish drink large amounts of seawater to balance water loss and excrete salt through their gills and kidneys

Freshwater fish drink almost no water and replenish salts through eating; some also replenish salts by uptake across the gills 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Salmon Life Cycle Osmoconformers Match internal osmotic pressure to that of their external environment Reduces the movement of water and solutes into or out of their bodies Dont spend a lot of energy regulating osmotic pressure However, they do need to adapt their [solute] to seawater Examples: Most marine invertebrates (match intracellular [solute] to seawater)

Some marine vertebrates, such as lampreys and hagfish (match intracellular [solute] to seawater) Sharks, rays, skates (match intracellular [urea] to seawater) Salt Excretion Sharks and rays: excrete excess salt by a rectal gland Marine birds have specialized nasal salt glands, allowing them to gain net water by drinking seawater Nitrogenous Waste Excretory organs eliminate nitrogenous wastes and

regulate water and electrolyte levels. Excretion: the elimination of waste products and toxic compounds from body Animals have excess nitrogenous wastes from N-containing foods they metabolize for energy; specifically proteins and nucleic acids Depending on the animal, these wastes are either excreted as: Ammonia Urea Uric acid Figure 32.18 Nucleic acids Proteins Breakdown of nitrogencontaining macromolecules

Amino acids Removal of nitrogencontaining amino group Nitrogenous bases NH2 (amino groups) Nitrogenous Wastes Conversion to nitrogenous waste NH3 Ammonia Most aquatic animals, including most bony

fishes 2016 Pearson Education, Inc. Urea Uric acid Birds and many other Mammals, most amphibians, sharks, reptiles, insects, land snails some bony fishes Nitrogenous Waste Ammonia Excreted by most aquatic animals, including bony fishes

Most toxic, but easily released in water Liver deaminates Kidney excretes Urea Excreted by mammals, amphibians, sharks, Much less toxic than ammonia Produced in liver by combining ammonia with carbon dioxide; then excreted by kidneys

Nitrogenous Wastes Contd Uric Acid Excreted by birds, insects, reptiles Least toxic but most energetically costly Insoluble in water; excreted as semi-solid paste called guano; allows animal to conserve water Humans excrete urea, but also a little bit of uric acid.

QUICK CHECK The filtrate is dilute at the start and end of the loop of Henle. What, then, is the function of the loop of Henle? Answer The loop creates a concentration gradient from the cortex to the medulla, which is important for water reabsorption from the descending limb and the

collecting ducts. The loops also leave urea as the main solute. Concentrating Urine in the Mammalian Kidney The mammalian kidneys ability to conserve water is a key terrestrial adaptation The loop of Henle and surrounding capillaries act as a type of countercurrent system This system involves active transport and thus an expenditure of energy Such a system is called a countercurrent multiplier system 2016 Pearson Education, Inc.

hypothalamus to have posterior pituitary gland secrete ADH ADH acts on collecting duct to increase its reaborption of water End result: helps fluid retention by making kidneys keep more water Hypothalamus also causes thirst.drinking reduces blood osmolarity NOTE: Beer lowers ADH, cant hold water, lots of dilute urine, get dehydrated NOTE: Diabetes symptom: thirst Why? Diabetes lowers ADH. Hormonal Control of Kidneys Contd Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone System (RAAS) Stimulus: low BP or blood volume triggers JGA in kidneys to release renin JGA releases renin, converts angiotensinogen into

angiotensin II, which constricts arterioles and increases reabsorption of water and salt Angiotensin II also stimulates adrenal cortex to release aldosterone: hormone which increases reabsorption of water and salt in distal tubules End result: increase in BP and blood volume 2016 Pearson Education, Inc.
