Study Notes

Frog Internal Anatomy

  • The liver, right lung, small intestine, mesentery, oviduct, large intestine, heart, fat body, stomach, ovary, kidney, and bladder are all internal organs found in a frog.

Epithelial Tissue

  • Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelium consists of a single layer of cells but appears to have multiple layers due to size differences, commonly found in the trachea and respiratory tract.
  • Transitional Epithelium consists of multiple cells that can change shape depending on the pressure experienced by the organ, found in the bladder and urethra.

Connective Tissue

  • Fibroblast Cells (Areolar Tissue) have a flattened, dark-staining nucleus and cytoplasm, providing structural support in softer body parts, with collagen forming thick and tough fibers.
  • Fat Cells (Adipose Tissues) are spherical cells that store oils or fats, releasing fat molecules into the bloodstream when cells run out of nutrients, and produce the hormone Leptin.
  • Cartilage Cells, also known as chondrocytes, secrete collagen and long chains of sugar molecules, forming a more rigid and stronger connective tissue.
  • Ligaments are elastic bands of tissue connecting bone to bone, providing joint stability.
  • Tendons are bands of tissue connecting muscle to bone.

Epithelial Tissue Types

  • Squamous Epithelium: Simple Squamous Epithelium is a single layer of flattened cells, allowing diffusion of gases and small molecules, found in the inner lining of blood vessels and lungs.
  • Squamous Epithelium: Stratified Squamous Epithelium has multiple layers of cells, providing protection from stress, abrasion, and desiccation, found in the linings of the esophagus, mouth, and vagina.
  • Cuboidal Epithelium: Simple Cuboidal Epithelium is a single layer of cube-like cells, secreting and absorbing materials through ducts or tubes, found in the linings of the kidney and intestines.
  • Cuboidal Epithelium: Stratified Cuboidal Epithelium has multiple layers of cells, selectively absorbing and secreting materials into the blood or lymph vessels, found in glands like sweat, mammary, and salivary glands.
  • Columnar Epithelium: Simple Columnar Epithelium is a single layer of cells taller than they are wide, absorbing nutrients and secreting enzymes and mucous, found in the intestines and stomach.

Muscle Types

  • Striated or Skeletal Muscles are voluntary, have slow to fast contraction speeds, and are found in the body.
  • Smooth Muscles are involuntary, have slow rhythmic contractions, and are found in the body.
  • Cardiac Muscles are involuntary, have slow rhythmic contractions, and are found in the heart.

Nervous System

  • The nervous system has three main functions: maintaining body homeostasis with electrical signals, providing sensation, higher mental functioning, and emotional response, and activating muscles and glands.
  • The nervous system consists of two subdivisions: the central nervous system (CNS), comprising the brain and spinal cord, and the peripheral nervous system (PNS), comprising spinal and cranial nerves.
  • Nerve cells, also known as neurons, are supported by supporting cells, which in the CNS are referred to as neuroglia.
