- Sudoriferous (sweat) gland:
- Sebaceous gland
- Exocrine Gland
- a glands that have ducts through which their secretions are carried to a body surface (skin or mucosa)
- b Sweat glands in the pubic and underarm areas that secrete thicker sweat, that produce odor. (secretions contain water, salts, fatty acids, and proteins)
- c Cells that produce melanin.
- d the glands that produce a saline solution called sweat.
- e glands that empty their sebum secretion into hair follicles.
5 Multiple choice questions
- slightly slanted compound structures. The inner epidermal sheath is composed of epithelial tissue and forms the hair. The outer dermal sheath is actually dermal connective tissue. Dermal region supplies blood vessels to the epidermal portion/reinforces it.
- the upper dermal region. It is uneven and has peglike projections from its superior surface, called dermal papillae, which indent the epidermis above.
- a tough, insoluble protein found in tissues such as hair, nails, and epidermis of the skin.
- the skin and its accessory organs.
- the deep layer of the skin; composed of dense, irregular connective tissue
5 True/False questions
Reticular layer → the upper dermal region. It is uneven and has peglike projections from its superior surface, called dermal papillae, which indent the epidermis above.
Subcutaneous tissue → essentially is adipose tissue. Not part of the skin, but it does anchor the skin to underlying organs and provides a site for nutrient (fat) storage. The tissue serves as a shock absorber and insulates the deeper tissues from the extreme temperature changes occurring outside the body. (responsible for women's curves).
Cutaneous membrane → membrane that forms the linings of body cavities open to the exterior (digestive, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive tracts)
Nail → the oily secretion of sebaceous glands.
Pleura → a clear secretion that is primarily water plus some salts (sodium chloride), vitamin C, traces of metabolic wastes (ammonia, urea, uric acid), and lactic acid(the chemical that accumulates during vigorous muscle activity) sweat is acidic pH from 4-6. Sweat reaches the surface through ducts that opens as a pore.
