Flashcards in Female Histo Deck (16):
1

covering of ovary

germinal epithelium

tunica alibuiinia (fibrous capsule)

2

stem cells of the ovary

oocyte and follicles

3

primary follicle morphology

unilaminar primary follicle lined with cuboidal cells

 

morph to larger, bilaminar follicle with compressed interstitial cells

formation of acellular zona pelucida

4

secondary follicle morphology

antrums coalesce, oocyte pushed aside

follicular cells now granulosa cells of membrane of granulosa

5

necessary for secondary follicle development

FSH

6

Mature follicle morphology

Corona radiata coronal cells surround oocyte

cumulus oophorus follicle cells surround this

Theca interna

basement avasvular layer

Granulosa cells

Theca externa

7

temporary steroid secreting endocrine gland that forms in second half of cycle

corpus luteum

8

Lutein cells (granulosa and Theca) secrete

estrogen and progesterone

9

white scar of atrophied corpus luteum

corpus albicans

10

ampulla morphology

 

isthmus

ampulla - highly folded mucosa

 

isthmus - less folded, thicker muscularis layer, mesoaplinx surrounding tube

 

11

uterine lining is a ___ wall

fibrous

12

Transitional zone of uterus

junction between inner columnar to outer sqaumous non-keratinized epithelia

 

region for pap smear

13

zones of endometrium

outer 2/3 = functional zone

inner third = Basal zone

14

vaginal morphology

thick epithelium covering mucosa

stratified squamous, non-cornified

 

fibrous wall with man vessels

elastic tissues

15

secreted by the granulosa cells of dominant follicle, inhibits ____

inhibin B inhibits FSH synthesis

16

blood supply to endometrium

straight arteries to basal zone

 

spiral arteries only blood supply to functional zone (sensitive to progesteron and estrogen - dilation)
