A narrow cleft-like opening between adjacent parts of bones through which blood vessels or nerves pass
Complex organelle A network of membranes in the form of flattened sacs or tubules extending from nuclear envelope
Membranous vesicles that contain digestive and hydrolytic enzymes. Garbage disposals of the cell
Cis face accepts proteins from ER
Trans face modifies the molecules further and packages them for transport
The bone matrix develops into trabeculae that fuse with one another creating an open lattice-work appearance of spongy bone
lack a synovial cavity, and the bones are held together by dense irregular connective tissue that is rich in collagen fibers.
joint cavity present; functionally classified as a diarthrotic joint because the the synovial cavity allows a joint to be freely moveable
forms most of the base of the heart. Receives oxygen-enriched blood from the lungs through the pulmonary veins
forms most of the anterior surface of the heart. Pumps blood to the lungs to receive oxygen.
thickest chamber of the heart; forms the apex of the heart. Blood passes from the left ventricle through the aortic valve. Pumps blood to all other parts of the body
Supplies all parts if the body with oxygenated blood and has 4 principle divisions, largest artery in the body
the first and only branch from the ascending portion of the aorta. They provide blood to the myocardium of the heart.
supplies blood to the right side of the face and head. It bifurcates into the right subclavian internal and right common carotid arteries.
Right common carotid artery
supplies blood to the right side of the face and head. It bifurcates into the right internal and external carotid arteries
Right subclavian artery
supplies blood to the right upper extremity as well as throughout the right side of the thoracic region. provide blood to the upper extemities as they continue laterally to become the axillary arteries.
Left common carotid artery
The second artery to branch from the aortic arch. It supplies blood to the left side of the face and head. It bifurcates into the left internal and external carotid arteries.
Left subclavian artery
The third vessel of the aortic arch. It supplies blood to the left upper extremity as well as throughout the left side of the thoracic region. provide blood to the upper extemities as they continue laterally to become the axillary arteries.
continuation of the subclavian arteries; beginning at the lateral border of the first rib and continuing until reaching the armpit region where thye become the brachial arteries.
continuations of the axillary arteries along each humorous. They bifurcate into smaller arteries in the hands. Common site for measuring blood pressure.
Radial and ulnar arteries
run alongside the corresponding bones until they bifurcate into smaller arteries in the hands. Common site for radial pulse
branch from the subclavian arteries. They travel superiorly through the foramen magnum where they anastomose to form the basilar artery
the basilar artery and the two internal carotid arteries anastomose to form the Circle of Willis, which serves as the major blood supplier to the brain.
Common iliac arteries
Formed when the abdominal aorta bifurcates just superior to the pelvic brim. Provide blood to the pelvic region, external genitals and the lower extremities
direct continuation of the external iliac arteries and they run alongside the femur bone until they reach the popliteal region.
Direct continuation of the femoral arteries as they pass through the popliteal region. In this region the anterior tibial arteries branch from the popliteal arteries. Once through this region the popliteal arteries bifurcate to become posterior tibial arteries and the peroneal arteries.
Anterior and posterior tibial arteries
travel the entire length of the leg until they terminate in the feet where smaller branches supply the feet with blood.
travel down the lateral, posterior portion of the leg until they reach the feet where they terminate.
Radial and ulnar veins
Formed from the deep veins of the hand
Run alongside the corresponding bones
Anastomose to form the brachial veins
Formed when the radial and ulnar veins anastomose near the elbow
They pass through the region of the upper arm
formed when the brachial veins and the superficial veins of the upper extremity anastomose and pass through the axilla
Direct continuation of axillary veins
The axillary veins change to the subclavian veins at the lateral borders of the first ribs
External jugular veins
Drain blood from the face, scalp, and neck
They empty into the subclavian veins
Internal jugular veins
Drain blood from the cranial vault and brain
They anastomose with the subclavian veins to form the brachiocephalic veins
Superior vena cava
Formed when the right and left brachiocephalic veins anastomose
It receives blood from the entire upper body, and then empties in to the right atrium of the heart
Anterior and posterior tibial veins
Formed by the anastomosis of deep veins of the foot
They travel along the medial side of the leg until they empty into the femoral veins
Great saphenous veins
Formed by the anastomosis of the superficial veins of the foot
They travel along the medial side of the leg until they empty into the femoral veins
Formed by the anastomosis of the anterior and posterior tibial veins as well as the peroneal veins
They are located in the popliteal region, behind the knee
Common iliac veins
formed by the anastomosis of the internal and external iliac veins just anterior to the sacral iliac joints
inferior vena cava
Formed by the anastomosis of the right and left common iliac veins
Veins from the abdominal organs such as renal veins, ovarian veins, portal veins, etc. then empty into the inferior vena cava as it makes its way to the heart
Enters the heart through the inferior, posterior portion of the right atrium
Drains excess interstitial fluid- Lymphatic vessels drain excess interstitial fluid from tissue spaces and return it to the blood.
Transports dietary lipids- Lymphatic vessels transport lipids and lipid-soluble vitamins (A,D,E, and K) absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract.
Carries out immune responses- Lymphatic tissue initiates highly specific responses directed against particular microbes or abnormal cells.
what 2 regions is the skin divided into and how many layers
1. Epidermis- 5 layers
2.Dermis- 2 layers
1)Cells in this layer are alive
2)Strands of keratin attach to the cells in this layer
1)Cells in this layer of skin are still alive but are decomposing and dying
2)This layer forms an important barrier by protecting the living cells of the deeper layers from germs and injury
Stratum Lucidum charicteristics
2)Replaces cells lost from the first layer
3)This layer is only found in thick, hairless skin
Stratum Corneum charicteristics
2) Living portions of the cell have been replaced by keratin
3) Continually "sloughed off" and replaced by deeper tissues
4) Keratin is a mass of tough, densely packed protein fibers that protect the skin and underlying tissues from heat, chemicals, and bacteria
1)Superficial portion of the dermis
2)Responsible for skin lines and finger prints
3)Provides blood and nutrients necessary for the regeneration of skin cells to the epidermis
1)Deepest layer of the integumentary system
2)Consists of thick, elastic collagen fibers bound into a three dimensional lattice
3)Primarily responsible for the strength and elasticity of the integumentary system
is the formation of a barrier against environmental damage such as pathogens (bacteria, fungi, parasites, viruses) heat, UV radiation and water loss
name the parts of the respiratory system
Second largest portion of the brain. Deals with the functions of movement, Coordination, Skilled movements, Maintenance of posture, and equilibrium
Secretes pepsinogen: breaks peptide bonds in protein
Secretes gastric lipase: splits short-chain triglycerides into fatty acids and monoglycerides
