Integumentary System

Colored People by D.C. Talk

  • Pardon me, your epidermis is showing, sirI couldn’t help but note your shade of melaninI tip my hat to the colorful arrangementCause I see the beauty in the tones of our skinWe’ve gotta come togetherAnd thank the maker of us all

Chapter 5

(chorus)We’re colored people, and we live in a tainted placeWe’re colored people, and they call us the human raceWe’ve got a history so full of mistakesAnd we are colored people who depend on a holy grace[1, 1, 1, 1... 2, 2, 2, 2... 3, 3, 3, 3... 4, 4, 4, 4]A piece of canvas is only the beginning forIt takes on character with every loving strokeThis thing of beauty is the passion of an artists heartBy gods design, we are a skin kaleidoscope

Chapter 5

We’ve gotta come together,Aren’t we all human after all? (repeat chorus)Ignorance has wronged some racesAnd vengeance is the lordsIf we aspire to share this spaceRepentance is the cure[1, 1, 1, 1... 2, 2, 2, 2... 3, 3, 3, 3... 4, 4, 4, 4]Well, just a day in the shoes of a color blind manShould make it easy for you to seeThat these diverse tones do more than cover our bonesAs a part of our anatomy

Chapter 5

(repeat chorus)We’re colored people, and they call us the human race[oh, colored people]We’re colored people, and we all gotta share this space[yeah we’ve got to come together somehow]We’re colored people, and we live in a tainted world[red and yellow, black and white]We’re colored people, every man, woman, boy, and girl[colored people, colored people, colored people, colored people, yeah]

Epidermal cells1
Epidermal Cells

  • Keratinocytes

    • Tightly packed; scale-like

    • Produced in the stratum basale

    • Work themselves upward to stratum corneum (top layer) and then they die and fall off

    • Produce keratin (protein)

  • Melanocytes

    • Spider shaped

    • Found in deepest layer (stratum basale)

    • Produce melanin (protein)

Epidermal cells cont
Epidermal Cells (cont.)

  • Langerhan’s cells

    • Produced in the bone marrow

    • Migrate to the stratum spinosum

    • Star-shaped

  • Merkel cells

    • Spiky hemisphere shape

    • Touch receptors (light touch; discrimination of shapes and textures)

The diversity of keratin
The Diversity of Keratin


  • Function – bind body together; tough hide

  • Protein fibers:

    Collagen – most abundant protein fiber; provides strength and resilience to prevent jabs and scrapes from entering the dermis

    Elastin – allows stretch and recoil

  • Contains 7 structures

    • Blood vessels

    • Nerve endings

    • Hair follicles

    • Oil glands

    • Sweat glands

    • Lymphatic vessels

    • Meissner's corpuscles (touch receptors -detect pressure, vibrations)

2 dermal layers
2 Dermal Layers

Papillary Layer

  • Areolar Connective Tissue

  • Superficial, thin

  • Loosely woven mat of collagen and elastin fibers; abundant blood vessels

    - Dermal Ridges

    • Add friction/increase grip strength

    • Combine with sweat to form fingerprints

Dermal papillae and fingerprints
Dermal Papillae and Fingerprints

Dermis 2 nd layer
Dermis – 2nd Layer

  • Reticular Layer

    • Dense Irregular Connective Tissue

    • Deep and thick

    • Thick collagen fibers interlocking to resist tension in many directions.


  • Not a part of the skin

  • Location – deep to the dermis

  • Tissue type – adipose

  • Functions- store fat, anchors skin to muscles, insulation, prevents heat loss

  • Extra hypodermis storage areas

    • Males- belly (anterior abdomen-”beer belly”)

    • Females – thighs, breasts

    • Cellulite – fat pushes up on dermis causing bumps (“cottage cheese”) on outside of skin

Eccrine sweat glands
Eccrine sweat glands

  • Location - found everywhere but nipples and external genitalia

    • Most abundant: palms of hands, soles of feet, forehead

    • Ducts terminate at skin pores

    • Function: Regulate body temperature through evaporation (perspiration)

    • Sweat is 99% water; acidic (pH 4-6); NaCl; urea

Apocrine sweat glands
Apocrine sweat glands

  • Location – axilla and anogenital areas (armpits and groin)

  • Duct opens into hair follicles

  • Sweat contains lipids and proteins

  • Sweat + bacteria = body odor

  • Begin functioning at puberty

  • Increased activity: pain, stress, sexual arousal

Sebaceous oil glands
Sebaceous Oil Glands

  • Location – everywhere except palms/soles

  • Most abundant- face, neck, upper chest

  • Secrete sebum (oil) into hair follicle

    or occasionally a skin pore

  • Holicrine glands – don’t secrete; burst

  • Become more active – puberty

  • Positive – keep skin/hair soft, lubricated

  • Negative – inflammation (acne) and (boils)

Skin cancer1
Skin Cancer

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma

    • least malignant; most common

    • slow growth; shiny, dome-shaped

    • occur most on face

  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma

    • Scaley, red, small, round

    • Rapid growth; can metastisize

    • Head, scalp, ears lower lip


  • Highly metastatic and resistant to chemotherapy

  • Mostly from moles

  • A – asymmetric cancer of melanocytes

  • B – border irregular

  • C – color – contains several colors

  • D – diameter larger than 6 mm


  • Damage to the skin from intense heat, electricity, radiation or chemicals

  • First Degree: damage to epidermis only

  • Second Degree: damage to epidermis and upper region of dermis; blisters

  • Third Degree: full thickness burns

  • Dehydration, shock; treated with I.V.

  • Infection – main cause of death

Skin related diagnostic terms
Skin-related Diagnostic Terms

  • Cyanotic – skin appears blue b/c of lack of oxygen in blood; heart failure and severe respiratory disorders

  • Hematomas – Bruise; blood clotted beneath skin

  • Jaundice – yellowish cast; accumulation of bile in blood; indicative of liver disorders

    - In dark-skinned individuals, examine mucous membranes and nail beds.

Vitiligo skin pigmentation disorder loss of melanocytes and uneven dispersal of melanin
Vitiligo- Skin Pigmentation Disorder – loss of melanocytes and uneven dispersal of melanin

Chapter 5
BOTOX- melaninremoves frown lines, furrowed brows; the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum inhibits muscles from contracting

Functions of the integumentary system
Functions of the Integumentary System melanin

  • Protection

    • Chemical – acidic; slows down bacterial growth melanin shields UV rays

    • Physical – continuous barrier; prevents water loss

    • Biological – fights viruses and bacteria that have entered body through the skin

Functions cont
Functions cont. melanin

  • Body Temperature Regulation

    • Perspiration (sweat) removes body heat – prevents overheating

  • Cutaneous Sensation

    • Touch, pressure, pain

  • Metabolic Functions

    • Produces vitamin D and proteins (keratin, melanin, collagen, elastin)

Functions cont1
Functions cont. melanin

  • Blood reservoir

    • Holds about 5% of body’s total blood volume

  • Excretion

    • Through sweat, rids body of nitrogen wastes: ammonia, urea, and uric acid
