Connective Tissue Quizzes & Trivia

The common cell types in connective tissues include fibroblasts, mast cells, plasma cells, macrophages, adipocytes, and leukocytes. Fibroblasts are the most common cell type of connective tissue. They produce both fibers and amorphous ground substance. The lecture below gives you an insight into connective tissues and follows it up with quizzes. Give it a try!


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Permanent cells are cells that no longer change. There are multiple types of permanent cells within the body, and as such, many are present within connective tissue. Connective tissue is tissue that connects, supports, binds, or separates other tissues or organs. Which of the following cell types is not a permanent cell present within connective tissue?
    • A. 

      Leukocytes

    • B. 

      Fibroblasts

    • C. 

      Adipocytes

    • D.

    A 54 year old man was walking down the street on Christmas Eve in 1925. He had just waited in line for 7 hours to spend $0.69 on the perfect gift for his 3 year old daughter; the Famlee doll produced by the Berwick Doll Company. His 87 year old neighbor eyed his recent purchase and, thinking it would be the perfect doll for her great granddaughter, mugged him. The 54 year old man received 3 lacerations; one on his abdomen and two along his brachial region. After a few days, the wounds began healing. Which of the following connective tissue cells, containing actin filaments providing contractability to the edges of the wounds, aid in wound healing?
