A certain tissue exhibits the following characteristics. Identify the tissue:
1. Covers the surface of organs
2. Has basement membrane
3. Has no dedicated supply of blood vessels
4. Has the ability to form junctions and fill gaps
The human body consists of four types of tissue: epithelial, connective, muscular, and nervous. Epithelial tissue covers the body, lines all cavities, and composes the glands. It has a basement membrane which is not present in the other tissues. These tissues do not have a dedicated supply of blood vessels but they are innervated by connective tissue. Epithelial cells are laid together in sheets, that are tightly bound to one another by cell junctions.
