B) adherens junction.
D) gap junction.
Inflamed tissue is often warm to the touch because of

B) increased blood flow to the area.
C) infiltration by neutrophils.
D) leakage of clotting proteins.
The best definition of fibrosis is
A) the production of collagen fibers.
B) the production of elastic fibers.
C) the formation of dense regular connective tissue.
D) the formation of scar tissue.
Which one of the following basic types of tissues functions as a covering tissue for the body?
Which of the following is not a characteristic of the inflammatory response?
A) attacks and eliminates specific foreign molecules
B) involves release of chemicals that cause local vasodilation
C) occurs within connective tissue
D) results in edema and delivery of chemicals needed for repair
A structure that secretes hormones into the blood is
A) a plasma cell.
B) a goblet cell.
C) an endocrine gland.

A) areolar connective tissue.
B) dense irregular connective tissue.
C) dense regular connective tissue.
D) reticular connective tissues.
The distinguishing characteristic between tight junctions and adherens junctions is that
A) adherens junctions attach to the actin myofilaments of the cytoskeleton, whereas tight junctions do not.
B) adherens junctions involve integral membrane proteins, whereas tight junctions do not.
C) tight junctions are present near apical lateral borders, whereas adherens junctions are located near basal lateral borders.
D) tight junctions involve fusion of proteins on adjacent cells, whereas adherens junctions create tunnels between adjacent cells.
