What are different types of simple epithelium cells responsible for?
- Secretion = Cuboidal
- Absorption = Columnar
- Diffusion = Squamous
What type of histology do goblet cells have?
Unicellular Exocrine, more specifically apocrine = products are secreted by membrane-bound vesicles and pinched off
What are examples of exocrine cells in the head and face?
- Goblet cells = unicellular apocrine
- Main lacrimal gland = merocrine
- Salivary glands
- Meibomian glands = holocrine
- Glands of moll = multicellular apocrine
What type of exocrine secretory histology do meibomian glands have?
Holocrine = secreted by complete cells, and placed into cytoplasm of other cells
What exocrine glands in the adnexa are apocrine glands?
- Goblet cells
- Glands of moll
What exocrine gland in the adnexa is a merocrine gland?
Main lacrimal gland
What organ acts as both an endocrine and exocrine system?
What does the exocrine portion of the pancreas do?
Produces main digestive enzymes
What does the endocrine portion of the pancreas do?
Produces insulin, glucagon, and somatostatin in the islets of langerhan's

What type of epithelium is found in the anus?
What type of epithelium does the bladder have?
what are examples of compound exocrine glands?
- Salivary glands:
- Sublingual glands
- Submandibular glands
- Parotid glands
What does the sublingual gland secrete?
What does the submandibular gland secrete?

What does the parotid gland secrete?
what exocrine glands are unicellular in the adnexa?
