- Apocrine gland
- Epithelial membrane
- Sudoriferous (sweat) gland:
- Subcutaneous tissue
- a 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.
- b the glands that produce a saline solution called sweat.
- c the membranous sac enveloping the heart.
- d Sweat glands in the pubic and underarm areas that secrete thicker sweat, that produce odor. (secretions contain water, salts, fatty acids, and proteins)
- e 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).
5 Multiple choice questions
- the oily secretion of sebaceous glands.
- the upper dermal region. It is uneven and has peglike projections from its superior surface, called dermal papillae, which indent the epidermis above.
- 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).
- the dark pigment synthesized by melanocytes responsible for skin color.
- the deep layer of the skin; composed of dense, irregular connective tissue
5 True/False questions
Eccrine gland → 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.
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.
Stratum corneum → the deepest cell layer of the epidermis, lies closest to the dermis and is connected to it along a wavy borderline that resembles corrugated cardboard.
Melanocytes → Cells that produce melanin.
Mucous membrane → membrane that forms the linings of body cavities open to the exterior (digestive, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive tracts)
