Skin and  its Derivatives


Epithelial  + Connective Tissue

    • Serous
    • Cutaneous
    • Mucous

Connective  Tissue

    • Synovial

Serous  Membranes

Line body cavities  that have no openings to outside.

Secrete watery fluid.

Simple squamous epith  + loose CT

Mucous  Membranes

Serous,  Mucous Membranes

Synovial  Membrane

Lines joint cavities  at articulations.

Loose CT + elastic  fibers + adipose tissue

Cutaneous  Membrane

Stratified squamous  epithelium + CT + muscle + nervous  tissue

Functions  of Skin

  • Protects from  injuries
  • Acts as barrier and regulates what enters/leaves body.
  • Regulates body temperature.
  • Synthesizes, stores vitamins.
  • Sensory functions


Stratum corneum

Stratum granulosum

Stratum spinosum

Stratum basale (germinativum)

Stratum lucidum**

**Thick skin only

Stratum  Basale

  • Lowest epidermal  layer, near dermis
  • Good nutrient supply
  • Reproduces by mitosis
  • Cuboidal, columnar in shape
  • Moves to upper epidermis in 27 days.

Stratum  Basale

Stratum  Spinosum

  • Living cells
  • Dividing
  • 8-10 cells thick
  • Polygonal in appearance

Stratum  Spinosum

Stratus  Granulosum,     Lucidum

  • Poor nutrient  supply.
  • Flatten layer of cells.
  • 3-5 cells thick.
  • No cell division.
  • Keratin accumulates.
  • Found only  in very thick skin.
  • Translucent.
  • Highly keratinized.
  • Dead cells

Stratum  Corneum

  • 25-30 cells  thick.
  • Cells are filled with keratin and hardened.
  • Sloughed off.
  • Outer most layer of epidermis.
  • Keratinocytes

Superficial  or Deep Layer?


Are  cells keratinized in  this layer?

Seen  in THIN skin too?
