Human Anatomy BIOL 1010 Liston Campus

What is Anatomy?
Anatomy (= morphology): study of body s structure Physiology: study of body s function Structure reflects Function!!! Branches of Anatomy 

Gross: Large structures Surface: Landmarks Histology: Cells and Tissues Developmental: Structures change through life Embryology: Structures form and develop before birth

Hierarchy of Structural Organization
Each of these build upon one another to make up the next level: Chemical level Cellular Tissue Organ Organ system Organism

Hierarchy of Structural Organization Chemical level   Atoms combine to make molecules 4 macromolecules in the body  Carbohydrates  Lipids  Proteins  Nucleic acids .

Hierarchy of Structural Organization Cellular  Made up of cells and cellular organelles (molecules)  Cells can be eukaryotic or prokaryotic  Organelles are structures within cells that perform dedicated functions ( small organs ) .pvschools.

4 Types of Connective Tissue 1) 2) 3) 4) Connective Tissue Proper Cartilage Bone Tissue Blood .

storing & carrying nutrients.Connective Tissue (CT): most abundant and diverse tissue Four Classes Functions include connecting. fight infection CT contains large amounts of non-living extracellular matrix Some types vascularized All CT originates from mesenchyme  Embryonic connective tissue . protection.

1) Connective Tissue Proper Two kinds: Loose CT & Dense CT  Functions  Support and bind to other tissue  Hold body fluids  Defends against infection  Stores nutrients as fat  Each function performed by different kind of fibers and cells in specific tissue .

provide tensile strength  (ex) dominant fiber in ligaments  Elastic:  long + thin. stretch and retain shape  (ex) dominant fiber in elastic cartilage .Fibers in Connective Tissue Fibers For Support  Reticular:  form networks for structure & support  (ex) cover capillaries  Collagen:  strongest. most numerous.

waste + oxygen to travel to cells found in ground matrix part of extra-cellular material that holds and absorbs interstitial fluid Made and secreted by fibroblasts jelly-like with sugar & protein molecules Interstitial (Tissue) Fluid    Ground Matrix (substance):    .In Connective Tissue Proper Fibroblasts:    cells that produce all fibers in CT produce + secrete protein subunits to make them produce ground matrix derived from blood in CT proper medium for nutrients.

mark molecules for destruction Mast cells-contain chemical mediators for inflammation response hite Blood Cells = neutrophils. eosinophils-fight infection Ground substance + cell fibers-slow invading microorganisms .Defense from Infection Areolar tissue below epithelium is body s first defense Cells travel to CT in blood     Macrophages-eat foreign particles Plasma cells-secrete antibodies. lymphocytes.

Loose CT Proper Areolar CT    All types of fibers present All typical cell types present Surrounds blood vessels and nerves .

lymph nodes. supports Found in hypodermis under skin Contains only reticular fibers Forms caverns to hold free cells.Specialized Loose CT Proper Adipose tissue    Loaded with adipocytes. spleen Reticular CT    . produces energy. highly vascularized. holds blood cells. high metabolic activity Insulates. forms internal skeleton of some organs Found in bone marrow.

Dense/Fibrous Connective Tissue Contains more collagen Can resist extremely strong pulling forces Regular vs. fibrous capsules at ends of bones Dense regular Dense irregular . ligaments  Irregular-fibers thicker. parallel to pull  (eg) fascia. Irregular  Regular-fibers run same direction. tendons. run in different directions  (eg) dermis.

2) Cartilage Chondroblasts produce cartilage Chondrocytes mature cartilage cells  Reside in lacunae More abundant in embryo than adult Firm. meniscus Avascular (chondrocytes can function w/ low oxygen) NOT Innervated Perichondrium    dense. Flexible Resists compression  (eg) trachea. irregular connective tissue around cartilage growth/repair of cartilage resists expansion during compression of cartilage .

nose  Elastic  many elastic fibers in matrix too  great flexibility  (eg) external ear.Cartilage in the Body Three types:  Hyaline     most abundant fibers in matrix support via flexibility/resilience (eg) at limb joints. annulus fibrosus . epiglottis  Fibrocartilage  resists both compression and tension  (eg) meniscus. ribs.

2 Types of Bone Formation Endochondral Ossification: All other bones     Begins with a cartilaginous model Cartilage calcifies Medullary cavity is formed by action of osteoclasts Epiphyses grow and eventually calcify  Epiphyseal plates remain cartilage for up to 20 years Intramembranous Ossification   Membrane bones: most skull bones and clavicle Osteoblasts in membrane secrete osteoid that mineralizes .

their tissue needs to be replaced  Osteoclasts-take up bone ( = breakdown) release Ca2++ .Bone Growth & Remodeling GROWTH  Appositional Growth = widening of bone  Bone tissue added on surface by osteoblasts of periosteum  Medullary cavity maintained by osteoclasts  Lengthening of Bone  Epiphyseal plates enlarge by chondroblasts  Matrix calcifies (chondrocytes die and disintegrate)  Bone tissue replaces cartilage on diaphysis side REMODELING  Due to mechanical stresses on bones. PO4 to body fluids from bone  Osteoblasts-form new bone by secreting osteoid  Ideally osteoclasts and osteoblasts work at the same rate! .
