Gland [gland] an aggregation of cells specialized to secrete or excrete materials not related to their ordinary metabolic needs. Glands are divided into two main groups, endocrine and exocrine.

adj., adj glan´dular. The endocrine glands, or ductless glands, discharge their secretions (hormones) directly into the blood; they include the adrenal. Exocrine glands can be classified into a variety of categories in terms of their structure.

They can be categorized according to the shape of their secretory unit. Secretory units shaped as a tube are referred to as tubular, whereas spherical units are referred to as alveolar or acinar, when the pancreas is involved.

Sweat glands, also known as sudoriferous or sudoriparous glands, from Latin sudor, meaning 'sweat', are small tubular structures of the skin that produce glands are a type of exocrine gland, which are glands that produce and secrete substances onto an epithelial surface by way of a are two main types of sweat glands that differ in their structure, function, secretory Latin: Glandula sudorifera.

Simple glands are also common in the plant kingdom. The sweet nectar of flowers and the resinous pitch of pine trees are substances produced by plant glands.

Mumford 1 emphasized the fact that constant changes are taking place in the superficial vascular system in response to various stimuli, and he expressed the belief that similar alterations are undoubtedly occurring in the activity of the sudoriparous glands, the output of which is subject to wide variations not only in different persons Cited by: The sebaceous glands are defined as being ramified-alveolar because their structure resembles a bunch of grapes, each grape (alveolus) connected by a stem to the main branch of the bunch (Fig.

(a) and (b)). The entire gland, like the hair follicle, is surrounded by a connective sheath that invaginates to surround even the individual by: 3. The basic structure of human sweat glands consists of a coiled secretory region deep in the skin and then a tube or duct that conveys the sweat to a pore at the skin surface.

Structure Simple, branched alveolar gland Secretions Secrete an oily substance called sebum Bactericidal Stimulated by hormones Function Function as holocrine glands Usually secrete into hair follicles Secretions soften and lubricate hair and skin.

INTRODUCTION: THE ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF SALIVARY GLANDS benefits of saliva is that it is easily available for non-invasive collection and analysis. It can be used to monitor the presence and levels of hormones, drugs, antibodies, micro-organisms and ions.

Sweat glands (also known as sudoriferous or sudoriparous glands, Template:Etymology), [6] [7] are small tubular structures of the skin that produce are two main types of sweat glands: Eccrine sweat glands are distributed almost all over the body, though their density varies from region to region.

Humans utilize eccrine sweat glands as a primary form of cooling. Define sudoriferous gland. sudoriferous gland synonyms, sudoriferous gland pronunciation, sudoriferous gland translation, English dictionary definition of sudoriferous gland.

Noun 1. sudoriferous gland - any of the glands in the skin that secrete perspiration sweat gland cutis, skin, tegument. True or False: Eccrine glands are larger than Apocrine glands. False; apocrine glands are larger than eccrine glands. In hoofed animals, this is the only evaporative cooling gland.

Sudoriferous glands synonyms, Sudoriferous glands pronunciation, Sudoriferous glands translation, English dictionary definition of Sudoriferous glands. small convoluted tubular glands which are situated in the subcutaneous tissues and discharge by minute orifices in the surface of the skin; the sweat.

The apocrine glands are found in places like the armpits, scrotum, anus, and labia majora. They are typically larger than eccrine glands and their ducts tend to open into hair follicles instead of hairless areas of skin.

These glands, unlike the eccrine glands, serve. The endocrine system is composed of the following endocrine glands; thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary, pineal and adrenal. The endocrine glands secrete hormones, which are messenger molecules, into the interstitial fluid in the bloodstream.

These released hormones affect nearly every cell, organ, and function of the human body. Sweat gland: | | | |Sweat gland| | | | | ||| World Heritage Encyclopedia, the aggregation of the largest online encyclopedias available, and the most definitive.

Sweat glands, also known as sudoriferous or sudoriparous glands, from Latin sudor, meaning “sweat”, are small tubular structures of the skin that produce glands are a type of exocrine gland, which are glands that produce and secrete substances onto an epithelial surface by way of a duct.

Page - The duct has often a distinct cavity in the epidermis, at other times there is a granular streak in the place of it, which is probably either a secretion or a deposit from the secretion. The sweat-pores, whose disposition, corresponding with that of the glands, is sometimes very regular, at others more irregular, are distinguishable, even with the naked eye, in the palm of the hand.

The parotid gland is a major salivary gland in many animals. In humans, the two parotid glands are present on either side of the mouth and in front of both are the largest of the salivary glands.

Each parotid is wrapped around the mandibular ramus, and secretes serous saliva through the parotid duct into the mouth, to facilitate mastication and swallowing and to begin the digestion. The endocrine system of the body is the one that contains the glands.

They consist of, the hypothalamus, pituitary, pineal, thyroid, thymus, pancreas, adrenals, and gonads. Other glands of the body (such as the enzyme-secreting salivary glands) deliver their enzymes via ducts and are referred to as exocrine glands. The structure and physiology of hormones and endocrine glands are relatively similar in all animals; the emphasis in this chapter is on the human endocrine system.

Classification of salivary glands: According to. As early asHorner, 1 in describing the odoriferous (apocrine) glands stated: I have ventured to give this name to a layer of well marked subcutaneous glands placed in the axilla, and which have been too much neglected by anatomists, indeed there are many modern systems in which they are not even alluded by: Exocrine glands are glands that excrete the hormones in the apical surfaces of the body.

On the other hand, the endocrine glands are glands that ooze products to the basal lamina surface. The latter glands lack a duct system. Sebaceous glands and sweat glands are often misunderstood because people think they are the same. The Endocrine System In the body, the endocrine system is composed of a variety of different glands.

The term ‘endocrine’ loosely means “secreting within”. Endocrine glands send chemical signal molecules around the body to communicate information. Together with the nervous system, it is considered one the two ‘long distance.

The salivary glands are exocrine glands, that is, they secrete substances outside the body or within a body cavity, in this case the oral cavity. The function of the salivary glands is simply to produce and discharge saliva in the oral cavity.

The salivary glands secrete between 1. Title(s): On the structure of the sudoriparous glands/ by G. Rainey. With delineations of these organs from microscopic preparations / by T.S. Ralph.

Dorsally, the tissue. Sweat glands are also known as sudoriferous or sudoriparous glands. There are three types of sweat glands, namely Eccrine sweat glands: these are distributed all over the body in varying densities.

Apocrine sweat glands: are limited to the axilla and perianal areas in humans. Ceruminous glands (ear wax), mammary glands (milk) and ciliary glands (in eyelids) are modified apocrine.

These are coiled tubular glands that are found in the dermis or lower part of the skin. They produce a watery secretion and open on to the skin to help control body temperature and provide an emotional response to stimulus. Disclaimer.

Saliva consists of two fluids, mucous and serous. Mucous. Mucous (slime) is a saccharide glycoprotein called water it makes the slippery lubricant used in many parts of the body, where it lines the moving parts, surfaces and tubes.

Here it lubricates the mouth, throat and alimentary canal. The mucous also has antiseptic qualities: it contains.Emphasizing changes in the field of salivary gland disease, including coverage of neoplastic and non-neoplastic areas, this text presents a view of salivary gland disease in a manner that is readily usable as a reference by surgical pathologists and clinicians.

As many pathologists have limited opportunity for experience with problems of salivary glands, and because the involved tissue.In many places, however, a relation of the sudoriparous glands to the hair follicles, of general occurrence in animals, persists, the sudoriparous glands partly developing directly from the uppermost portions of the hair follicles (Wimpfheimer, ; Diem, ), or partly having at least a connection with its follicles at their mouths (Fig.
