Flashcards in Block 4 - Endocrine Deck (34):
1

three layers of cortical layer of adrenal gland

zona glomerulosa, zona fasciculata, zona reticularis

2

a belt of little globes

zona glomerulosa

3

a belt of a bundle of sticks

zona fasciculata

4

a belt of a network of cells

zona reticularis

5

blank follow the paths of each layer of the cortical layer

capillary beds

6

superior suprarenal artery comes off blank

inferior phrenic artery

7

middle suprarenal artery comes off blank

aorta

8

inferior suprarenal artery comes off blank

renal artery

9

the cortex of the adrenal organ can control whats going on in the medulla by using blank

glucocorticoids

10

2 organelles that are most important for producing hormones in the adrenal gland

mitochondria, SER

11

each individual layer of the cortex forms blank hormones

1

12

zone glomerulosa makes this hormone

aldosterone

13

zona fasciculata makes this hormone

cortisol

14

zona reticularis makes this hormone

dhea

15

layer with many lipid droplets

zona fasciculata

16

lipofuscin pigment shows up in this layer

zona reticularis

17

no blank are required for these three layers of the cortex

secretion granules

18

cortex makes up this percent of the adrenal gland

90

19

medulla makes up this percent of adrenal gland

10

20

part of cortex that makes up 80 percent of the adrenal gland

zona fasciculata

21

zonula fascicula has relatively blank sinusoidal capillaries

straight

22

zonula reticulata has blank sinusoidal capillaries

branched

23

heavy red band of cells is definitely the blank

zona reticularis

24

these vessels can be seen in the medulla

post capillary venules

25

adventitia is filled with bundels of blank

smooth muscle

26

suprarenal vein has adventitia filled with smooth muscle which is similar to these two veins which the suprarenal veins dump into

IVC (right), renal (left)

27

zona fasciculata is blank stained

lightly

28

medulla is blank color

basophilic

29

the smooth muscle around the medullary vein is blank thickness

not uniform

30

cells in the medulla that bichromate salts

chromaffin cells

31

larger dense core vesicles in medulla produce blank and are about 20%

noradrenaline

32

smaller less well stained vesicles in medulla produce adrenaline and are about blank

80%

33

cell in the medulla that are few in number, basophilic

postganglionic sympathetic nerve cell

34

chromaffin cells are blank nerve cells

modified
