Flashcards in HISTO LEC - FEMALE REPRO Deck (35):
1

not anatomically distinct as compared to the tunica albuginea in the testes

Tunica albuginea of ovary

2


flattened ovoid glands

OVARIES

3

peripheral zone of ovary; contains female gametes in various stages

cortex

4

central zone; w/ highly vascularized structure; with hilus cells(similar to Leydig cells)

medulla

5

medulla of ovary has what type of cells

hilus cells

6


primary oocyte + single layer of follicular cells

Primordial follicle

7

glycoprotein layer(between the oocyte & follicular cells)

Zona pelucida-

8

– occupied by stromal cells (around the zona granulosa)

Theca folliculi

9

- occupied by granulosa cells

Zona Granulosa

10

- forms follicular antrum (fluid):formed within the zona granulosa

Zona granulosa

11

: granulosa cells thickened around the oocyte

cumulus oophorus

12

type of follicle
Follicular antrum- big
Cumulus oophorus-diminishes
Corona radiata-surrounds the secondary oocyte

Graafian follicle

13

Post ovulatory follicles

1. corpus luteum
2. corpus albicantes

14

conducting ducts (3)

Fallopian tubes: salphinx, uterine tubes, oviducts
Uterus: pear shaped, thickest wall
Vagina:

15

meeting point of sperm cell and egg cell

ampulla

16


- interstitial; portion of the fallopian tube inside the uterus

intramural

17

cells of fallopian

ciliated, nonciliated, intercalated

18

morphologic variant of secretory cells

intercalated cells of fallopian tube

19

-most diverse layer of uterus

endometrium

20

stromal cells disintegrate; endometrial glands collapsed

Onset of menstruation

21

stroma is edematous

Proliferative phase

22

Opens into the vagina

cervix

23

bulk of the cervix

CT

24

little portion of cervix

smooth muscle

25

part of the cervix
- simple ciliated columnar epithelium

Endocervix

26

erectile tissue in the external genitalia

Clitoris

27

bulk of mammary glands

adipose tissue

28

for catching the egg cell

fimbriae

29

narrowest or shortest portion of fallopian tube

isthmus

30

layer of the uterus that changes from day to day

endometrium

31

guards the uterus

cervix

32

counterpart of penis

clitoris

33

bulky portion of the external genitalia

mons pubis

34

opening with bartholin's glands

vaginal orifice

35

glands responsible for lubrication during sexual activity

bartholin's glands
