    makes up bulk of the skin, strong & flexible, tough leathery layer of dense connective tissue
    Question Image
    dermis
    30s
  • Q3
    subcutaneous tissue just deep to the skin sharing some of the skins protective functions
    Question Image
    hypodermis
    30s
  • Q4
    most superficial layer; 20-30 layers of dead cells, essentially flat membranous sacs filled with keratin. Glycolipids in extracellular space.
    Question Image
    stratum corneum
    30s
  • Q5
    epidermal layer absent in thin skin; 2-3 layers of clear, flat, dead, keratinocytes with indistinct boundaries.
    Question Image
    stratum lucidum
    30s
  • Q6
    typically one to 5 layers of flattened cells, organelles deteriorating ; cytoplasm full of lamellar granules (releasing lipids) and keratohyaline granules.
    Question Image
    stratum granulosum
    30s
  • Q7
    Several layers of keratinocytes unified by desmosomes. Cells contain thick bundles of intermediate filaments made of pre-keratin.
    Question Image
    stratum spinosum
    30s
  • Q8
    deepest epidermal layer; one row actively mitotic stem cells; some newly formed cells becoming part of more superficial layers. See occasional melanocytes and dendritic cells. AKA - stratum germanitivum
    Question Image
    stratum basale
    30s
  • Q9
    located in epidermis, chief role is producing keratin, majority of edipermal cells
    Question Image
    keratinocytes
    30s
  • Q10
    spider shaped epithelial cells that synthesize melanin, found in deepest layer of epidermis
    Question Image
    melanocytes
    30s
  • Q11
    arise from bone marrow to migrate to epidermis, ingest foreign substances and key activators of immune system, aka Langerhans cell
    Question Image
    dendritic cells
    30s
  • Q12
    a sensory receptor for touch in the epidermis, present at epidermal junction shaped like a spiky hemisphere, and associated with a disc-like nerve ending.
    Question Image
    tactile cells
    30s
  • Q13
    fibrous protein that gives epidermis protective properties
    Question Image
    keratin
    30s
  • Q14
    cells junctions that are "like velcro" connecting cells and producing a tension-resisting network.
    Question Image
    desmosomes
    30s
  • Q15
    made in skin, polymer of tyrosine amino acids; forms a pigment shield on the sunny-side of keratinocytes that protects from UV radiation.
    Question Image
    melanin
    30s
