Connective tissue- This tissue connects supports binds or separates other tissues and holds them together. It has long cells connecting it too other tissues and they come apart and separate to connect to other tissues. Connective tissue is composed primarily of two elements: cells and a matrix. The types of cells found in connective tissue vary depending on the type of tissue they support. For example, red and white blood cells are found in blood, which is a fluid connective tissue. Adipocytes are fat cells found in adipose tissue, or fat. And fibroblasts are cells found in many different types of connective tissues. Connective tissue in the body is found in a variety of forms, there is embryonic connective tissue, mature connective tissue, loose connective tissue, dense connective tissue etc.
Epithelial tissue- Epithelial tissue is one of the four major tissue types in the body, acting as an interface between the body and the rest of the world. Skin is composed of this tissue, and it also lines the body cavities and major organs. There are several different types of epithelial tissue, which form to fulfil specific needs and functions. This tissue, known as the epithelium, can filter, absorb, and diffuse various substances. This tissue is very close together and conjoined, they are overlapping each other and on top of each other. It has holes on it that are all the same and in the same place on each part of the tissue. The cells are tightly packed together with minimal intracellular spaces between them. The cells are attached to each other and they are polarized, with an “up” side and a “down” side which connects to the basement membrane or...
