    • cells flatten
    • organelles disintegrate
    • become water resistant

    • flattened
    • densely packed
    • dead
    • filled with keratin
  21. stratum lucidum in a nutshell
    nothing but water resistant membranes surrounding keratin
  22. how many layers are in the stratum corneum?
  23. where is the stratum corneum?

  24. how long does it take for cells to move from SB to SC?
    7-10 days

    2 weeks
  26. skin color is affected by...(2)
    • pigmentation
    • dermal circulation
  27. 3 pigments
    • carotene

  28. carotene
    • corneum
    • in orange or yellow veggies
    • can make up visual pigments
  29. melanin
    • basale 
    • brown
    • color based on activity- not number
  30. hemoglobin
    circulation and oxygenation of blood
  31. why is melanin more apical?
    to get more sunlight
  32. rickets
    lack of cholecalcified or vitamin D3 on bone development

    dermal papillae
  39. which layer makes up about 80% of your dermis?
  40. what type of tissue is the reticular layer made of?
    dense irregular connective tissue proper
  41. the dense irregular connective tissue proper in the reticular layer includes:
    • pockets of adipocytes 
    • interlacing collagen fibers
    • some elastic fibers
  42. what is the structure of most of the interlacing collagen fibers in the reticular layer?
    most run parallel to structure
  43. where is the cutaneous plexus?
    between the reticular layer and hypodermis
  44. pattern of fiber bundles in skin
    not visible externally
    important to surgeons
    cleavage (tension) lines
  45. what do the tactile corpuscles detect?
    light touch
  46. what do the lamellar corpuscles detect?
    deep touch and pressure
  47. what type of tissue is the hypodermis made of?
    areolar and adipose
  48. because it is a superficial region with large vessels, the hyperdermis is considered a...
    blood reservoir
  49. true or false. 
    the hypodermis is not part of the integumentary system.
