Dermis function

Dermis function & Dermal papillae, Reticulate skin

Typically the dermis or corium is actually a layer of skin involving the epidermis (with which that forms the skin) plus the subcutaneous tissue, which is composed mainly of dense unusual connective tissue and absorbs the body from stress and tension.   It is divided into two layers, the surface area adjacent to the epidermis […]

tendons functions

Tendons functions & Bone healing

Tendon or sin is a hard bone of fibrous connective tissue. It usually connects muscle to bone. Tendons similar to ligaments; Both are made of collagen. Strips join one bone to the other bone, while the tendons connect muscle to the bone perform the normal functioning of the body.   tendons functions Traditionally, tendons have […]

Capillaries function

Functions of Capillaries and their Structure

Capillary is a blood vessel. It has no muscular/elastic tissue of other blood vessels. It has a single cell wall to help the materials be transported through organisms. Small capillaries are smaller than any other blood vessel.   They are about 5-10 μm large, which connect arterial and vascular and allow the transfer of water, […]

Lymph function

Lymph function & Development

Lymph is a fluid that flows through the lymphatic system, a system composed of lymphatic vessels (channels) and intervening lymph nodes, whose function, as the venous system, is the return of fluid from tissues to the central circulation. Interstitial fluid between cells in all body tissues enters the lymphatic capillaries. This lymph fluid is then […]

Lunula function

Lunula function and their Health Conditions

Lunula or lunulae is a whitish crescent-shaped area of the nail. Lunula is the visible part of the nail root. In humans, it appears up to the 14th week of pregnancy and plays a major structural role in defining the free edge of the distal nail plate (part of the nail that grows outside).   […]

Epidermis function

Epidermis function & Permeability

The epidermis is the outermost of the three layers forming the skin, and the inner layers are the proper and subcutaneous skin.  The epidermal layer is a barrier to infection with environmental pathogens and regulates the amount of water released from the body into the atmosphere through transepidermal water loss. The epidermis consists of multiple […]

Paronychia symptoms & Causes

paronychia is an infection of the skin around nails. Bacteria or a type of yeast called Candida usually cause this infection. Bacteria and yeasts can even combine into one infection. Depending on the cause of the infection, anemia may appear slowly and persist for weeks or appear suddenly and last for only one or two […]

Cuticle function

Cuticle function & Mycology

In human anatomy, the “epidermis” may refer to several structures, but it is used in colloquial language, and even by doctors, when talking with patients to refer to the thickened skin surrounding nails and nails of the feet (eponychium) and refer to the external part of the hair, consisting of dead cells.  It can also […]

keratin functions

keratin functions & fibrous structural proteins

Keratin is a protein inside cells. It occurs in many types of cells but is very important for epithelial cells that form the skin. Keratin is a type of filamentous protein, called indirect filament. These proteins form long strands inside the cell, hence the name of the fiber. The fibers anchor the cells to each […]

Sesamoid bones function

Sesamoid bones function & Structure

The sesamoid bone is a bone embedded in the tendon or muscle. Derived from the Latin word sesamum (“sesame seed”), due to the small size of most of the sesame. Often, these bones arise in response to tension or may be present as a normal variant. The cap is the largest sesamoid bone in the […]
