what other name for subcatenous layer hypodermis
what other name for integument system and what is composed with. cutaneous membrane or skin composed of epidermis also epithelial and the dermis also the connective tissue
how many layers has epidermis and listed them epidermis has 5 layers: stratum germinativum, spinosum, granulosum, lucidium and corneum
in which layer germative cell or stem cell are located and what they're doing stem cell are located in the stratum germanativum and they are regenerate and grow
what stratum germinativum contain and what they syntasize it contains melanocytes which syntesize melanin
accessory structure what are they? hair, nail,and exocrine gland
what make fingerprint and where they extend to epidermal ridge which extend to the dermis or connective tissue and dermal papillae which extend in the epidermis or epithelial tissue
intermediate stata, in which layer division stop and produce what division stop in stratum granulosum and pruduve keratin which is dead cell
what form hair and nails keratin
which strata found only in the sole of the feet of the hand stratum lucidium
