Membranes and the Skin Membranes ● Membrane= epithelium + connective tissue ● Types: ○ Cutaneous → true epithelium + dermis ○ Mucous → true epithelium + lamina propria ○ Serous → mesothelia + lamina propria ○ Endothelial → endothelia + lamina propria ○ Synovial → endothelia + lamina propria ● Fascia= a mix of connective tissues ○ Superficial (areolar, adipose, hypodermis) ○ Deep (dense CT) ○ Skin (epidermis, stratified squamous, dense CT) *skin → superficial fascia → deep fascia → muscle* Skin ● Function ○ Protection ○ Water retention ■ Insensible Perspiration= constant small loss of  water through the skin ○ Temperature regulation ■ Vasodilation= dilation of artery to release heat ■ Vasoconstriction= constriction of artery to retain  heat ○ Metabolic regulation ○ Immune defense ■ Langerhans Cells= Dendritic cells; phagocytes in  the epidermis that alert immune system to invaders or infection ○ Excretion ○ Sensory information collection ● Integument= epidermis + dermis ● Nerve endings ○ Merkel Corpuscle → touch ○ Free Nerve Endings → pain ○ Meissner’s Corpuscle → light pressure ○ Pacinian Corpuscle → deep pressure ○ Ruffini Corpuscle → temperature ● Types of Skin ○ Thick Skin= extra layer of epidermis (Stratum Lucidum), no hair  follicles or sebaceous glands ○ Think Skin= covers most of the body; has hair follicles and  sebaceous glands ● Layers of the Epidermis (most inferior to most superior) 1. Stratum Basale (basal layer) ■ single layer, tightly attached to basement membrane ■ Contains keratinocyte cells, melanocytes, Merkel’s  corpuscles 2. Stratum Spinosum (spiny cell layer) ■ several layers ■ mature keratinocytes bind together to make  desmosomes 3. Stratum Granulosum (granular layer) ■ several layers ■ Keratohyalin and Lamellar granules; keratinization  begins here 4. Stratum Lucidum (clear layer) *****thick skin only ■ Several layers ■ Cells appear empty 5. Stratum Corneum (horny layer) ■ 20 layers, the most superficial layer ■ tightly packed dead cells ● The Dermis ○ Two layers: 1. Papillary ● areolar connective tissue ● dermal papillae ● capillaries, free nerve endings 2. Reticular ● Dense irregular connective tissue ● heavy collagen, connects to  hypodermis
