Based on the shape of lower layer cells, the epithelium is again differentiated as stratified squamous epithelium, stratified cuboidal epithelium, columnar stratified epithelium and psuedostratified columnar epithelium. In this lesson, learn more about the types of tissue and how each functions for a different purpose. Endothelium and mesothelium are special cases, usually classified as epithelial even though they derive from mesenchyme. Connective tissue binds the cells and organs of the body together and performs many functions, especially in the protection, support, and integration of the body. Complex tissues help in the transportation of organic material, water, and minerals up and down the plants. What Are Eicosanoid Hormones and What Do They Do?

A fourth, the peritoneum, is the serous membrane in the abdominal cavity that covers abdominal organs and forms double sheets of mesenteries that suspend many of the digestive organs. The liver and pancreas also play a role in the digestive system because they produce digestive juices. There are three types of epithelial membranes: mucous, which contain glands; serous, which secrete fluid; and cutaneous which makes up the skin. This tissue controls the whole body by conduction of impulses across the body. It is an involuntary type.

Tissue Membranes A tissue membrane is a thin layer or sheet of cells that covers the outside of the body for example, skin , the organs for example, pericardium , internal passageways that lead to the exterior of the body for example, abdominal mesenteries , and the lining of the moveable joint cavities. The has many functions, including detoxifying of harmful chemicals, breakdown of drugs, filtering of blood, secretion of bile and production of blood-clotting proteins. Cells can be thin, flat to cubic to elongated. The kidneys take urea out of the blood and combine it with water and other substances to make urine. White blood cells are cells that destroy pathogens and provide immunity. Adipose tissue: This tissue consists of fat cells, fat globules in the matrix of areolar tissue. The lungs are the major organ that provides oxygen exchange.
