5 True/False questions
Eccrine gland → glands that have ducts through which their secretions are carried to a body surface (skin or mucosa)
Melanin → the dark pigment synthesized by melanocytes responsible for skin color.
Integumentary system → Cells that produce melanin.
Papillary layer → 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.
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).
