5 Matching questions

  1. Keratin
  2. Melanocytes
  3. Dermis
  4. Peritoneum .
  5. Hair follicle
  1. a the deep layer of the skin; composed of dense, irregular connective tissue
  2. b 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.
  3. c Cells that produce melanin.
  4. d the serous membrane lining the interior of the abdominal cavity and covering the surfaces of the abdominal organs.
  5. e a tough, insoluble protein found in tissues such as hair, nails, and epidermis of the skin.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a clear, watery fluid secreted by the cells of a serous membrane.
  2. the deepest skin layer, contains irregularly arranged connective tissue fibers, as well as blood vessels, sweat and oil glands and deep pressure receptors called lamellar corpuscles.
  3. Sweat glands in the pubic and underarm areas that secrete thicker sweat, that produce odor. (secretions contain water, salts, fatty acids, and proteins)

5 True/False questions

  1. Eccrine glandfound 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.


  2. Cutaneous membranethe skin; composed of epidermal and dermal layers


  3. Epithelial membranemembrane that lines the fibrous capsule of a synovial joint.


  4. Sweatthe oily secretion of sebaceous glands.


  5. Stratum corneumthe 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)
