3. Describe the location, composition, and function of the epiphyseal plate. The epiphyseal plate is a layer of hyaline cartilage that allows the bone to grow in length. It is located in the Metaphysis of the growing bone. When the bone is finished growing, the hyaline cartilage is turned into osseous tissue.
3- Describe the [location, composition, and function] of the epiphyseal plate. The epiphyseal plate is located in the metaphysis and is composed of hyaline cartilage. It is the growth plate, it covers the part of the epiphysis where the bone forms an articulation with another bone. It reduces friction and absorbs shock in articular cartilage. In the periosteum it surrounds the bone surface wherever it is not covered by articular cartilage, it is a sheath of dense irregular connective tissue containing osteoblasts, it functions to protect the bone, assists in fracture repair, nourishes bone tissue, and serves as an attachment point for ligaments and tendons.
The lymph vessels collect fluid, called lymph from the body tissues and return it to the blood, maintaining the fluid balance within the body. Lymph filters through the lymph nodes, which are packed with white blood cells known as lymphocytes. These are produced in the bone marrow, spleen and thymus, and they help to protect the body against infections. Spleen: This is the largest lymphatic organ. It is located on the left side of the body just above the kidney.
3. Describe the location, composition, and, function of the epiphyseal plate. c. Location- shoulder, hips d. Composition- hyaline cartilage e. Function- bone growth 4. Which kind of bone marrow is in spongy bone tissue? f. Red marrow is the type of bone marrow found in spongy tissue.
1. Why osseous tissue is considered a connective tissue? a. Osseous tissue is considered connective tissue because just like connective tissues, osseous tissue contains an abundant extracellular matrix that surrounds widely separated cells. 2. What is the path a nutrient would travel through compact bone tissue from its diffusion out of a blood vessel in the periosteum to an osteocyte located within the second osteon in from the surface of the bone?
Flat bones are generally thin and provides extensive surfaces for muscles attachment. Flat bones: scapula, cranial , the sternum and the ribs 3. Describe the location, composition, and function of the epiphyseal plate. Epiphyseal plate is located in the metaphysis and is composed of the hyaline cartilage and its function allows for bones to grow in length. 4.
They are elongated and column shaped. The nuclei are elongated and and usually found towards the base of the cells. They form the lining of the stomach and intestines. They secrete mucus to keep the surface smooth. Ciliated Columnar Epithelium are simple columnar epithelial cells but they have fine, hair like cilia on their free surfaces.
Trace mineral are; Iron, Zinc, Iodine, Copper, Manganese, Fluoride, Chromium, and Molybdenum. Major minerals and trace minerals helps the body in carrying out important bodily functions. For example Magnesium and calcium both aid the body in building strong bones and teeth. Potassium Keeps fluids balanced in blood and tissue. Iron is essential for producing red blood cells and transporting life giving oxygen to the organs of the body.
Vitamins A, D, E, and K are fat soluble. (Young & Anderson, 2008) Vitamin A plays an important role in many bodily functions such as bone growth, cell division, reproduction, vision, and gene expression. The eyes and skin, as well as mucus membranes in the nose, mouth throat and lungs also require vitamin A for moisture. Good sources of vitamin A include dairy products, liver, and fish. Beta carotene, which is found in fruits and vegetables, can be converted by the body into vitamin A.
Mineral and Water Function The two main functions that minerals supply in our body are; to build body structures and help bodily functions. “Building functions affect the bones and all soft tissues. Regulating functions affect metabolism, heartbeat, blood clotting, water balance, blood pressure, nerves, oxygen transport and energy release” (Rubin 2000). The two different types of minerals are: “macro minerals” aka major minerals and “micro minerals” aka trace minerals (Rubin, 2000). Macro minerals are required in large amounts in order to keep the body functioning.
