- Papillary layer
- Eccrine gland
- Peritoneum .
- Subcutaneous tissue
- Exocrine Gland
- a 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).
- b the serous membrane lining the interior of the abdominal cavity and covering the surfaces of the abdominal organs.
- c found all over the body, they produce sweat, important in part of the body's heat-regulating equipment. Supplied with nerve endings that cause them to secrete sweat when the external temperature or body temperature is high.
- d glands that have ducts through which their secretions are carried to a body surface (skin or mucosa)
- e the upper dermal region. It is uneven and has peglike projections from its superior surface, called dermal papillae, which indent the epidermis above.
5 Multiple choice questions
- the skin; composed of epidermal and dermal layers
- Cells that produce melanin.
- composed of epithelial tissue and an underlying layer of connective tissue. (also called covering and lining membranes, include the cutaneous membrane, the mucous membranes, and the serous membranes.
- a scale-like modification of the epidermis that corresponds to the hoof or claw of other animals. Has a free edge, a body(visible attached portion), and a root (embedded in the skin).
- a clear, watery fluid secreted by the cells of a serous membrane.
5 True/False questions
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.
Arrector pili → a smooth muscle attached to hair follicles that causes "goose bumps" to appear on the skin when contracted
Synovial membrane → membrane that lines the fibrous capsule of a synovial joint.
Dermis → the outer layers of the skin; an epithelium
Stratum basale → the outermost layer, 20 to 30 cell layers thick and accounts for ¾ of the epidermal thickness. Shinglelike dead cell remnants, full of keratin. The layer provides a durable overcoat for the body. Protects deeper cells from hostile environment(air) and from water loss. Resists biological, chemical, and physical assaults. Layer is replaced by cells produced by the division of the deeper stratum basale cells. New epidermis every 25 to 45 days. (flakes off as dandruff)
