Flashcards in Female Deck (16):
1

Germinal epithelium

simple squamous to simple cuboidal

2

Tunica albuginia

dense, irregular CT
Collagen fibers, and fibroblasts

3

What layer of the ovary do you find follicles?

Cortex

4

Features of unilaminar follicle

simple cuboidal epithelia and acellular zona pellucida

5

Features of multilaminar follicle

stratified cuboidal epithelia; follicular cells are now called granulosa cells.

6

Secondary follicles have?

antrum, cumulous oophorous, corona radiata, and androgenic theca interna.

7

Hallmark of Atretic follicles?

Pyknotic granulosa nuclei/sloughing off into the antrum

8

corpus luteum

remnant of ovulated follicle

9

Oviduct's layers

inner mucosa, muscularis, serosa

10

Oviduct mucosa's epithelia:

simple columnar; ciliated cells as well as peg cells

11

Peg cells/secretory cells

nourish the gametes and fertilized embryo, as well as capacitate sperm for activation

12

basal bodies

anchor the microtubule core of the cilia to the cell

13

Late menstrual uterus

Thin endometrium, thick myometrium
No surface epithelium/functional layer

14

Proliferative Uterus

Functional layer restored by estrogen; surface epithelium restored
long, straight tubular glands
Mitotic profiles

15

Secretory uterus

wide uterine glands (grow via hypertrophy)
bright pink glycogen stained apocrine secretions
Thickest endometrium

16

Functional layer is lost b/c?

It's supplied by progesterone sensitive spiral arteries. Leutolysis causes progesterone levels to drops, causing constriction --> necrosis.
