- Exocrine Gland
- Mucous membrane
- Subcutaneous tissue
- a the deep layer of the skin; composed of dense, irregular connective tissue
- b 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).
- c 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).
- d glands that have ducts through which their secretions are carried to a body surface (skin or mucosa)
- e membrane that forms the linings of body cavities open to the exterior (digestive, respiratory, urinary, and reproductive tracts)
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.
- membrane that lines the fibrous capsule of a synovial joint.
- the outer layers of the skin; an epithelium
- the oily secretion of sebaceous glands.
- 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)
