Which layer exists below the dermis and epidermis? hypodermis or subcutaneous adipose layer (not classified as a layer)
what does the outer epidermis consists of? it consists of stratified squamous keratinizing epithelium with an underlying basement membrane
what are the type of cells that make up the epidermis? keratinocytes (melanocytes and langerhans are also present)
What are the subdivisions of the epidermis? it is subdivided into corneum, lucidum, granulosum, spinosum and basale
The Epidermis is the ______ layer of the skin and the _________ is the layer underneath it The Epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin and the Dermis is the layer underneath it.
The outer portion of skin, formed by epithelial tissue that rests on the dermis is called Epidermis
The outer layer of the skin is called the ______ Epidermis
what is the epidermis composed of? It is composed of keratinized stratified squamous epithelium, consisting of four distinct cell types and four or five layers
which cell types found in the epidermis? Keratinocytes, Melanocytes, Langerhans' cells, Merkel cells
what are the layers found in the Epidermis? Stratum Basale (Basal Layer), Stratum Spinosum (Prickly Layer), Stratum Granulosum - (Granular Layer), Stratum Lucidum -(Clear Layer),Stratum Corneum -(Horny Layer)
what is the function of Keratinocytes? They produce the fibrous protein keratin
what is the function of Melanocytes? They produce the brown pigment melanin
what is the function of Langerhans' cells? They are epidermal macrophages that help activate the immune system
what is the function of Merkel cells? They function as touch receptors associated with sensory nerve endings
where is the Stratum Basale found in the skin? It is the deepest epidermal layer firmly attached to the dermis
what is the Stratum Basale made up of? It consists of a single row of the youngest Keratinocytes

what types of cells are found in the Stratum Spinosum? Melanin granules and Langerhans' cells are abundant in this layer
what is the outermost layer of the epidermis called? Stratum Corneum
what types of cells make up the Stratum Corneum? Keratinized cells
what is the function of the Stratum Corneum? Waterproofing, Protection from abrasion and penetration, Rendering the body relatively insensitive to biological, chemical, and physical assaults
what is Psoriasis? It is a chronic skin disorder that is characterized by rapid division and movement of Keratinocytes through the epidermal strata
