  27. 27 a shallow wound that does not involve the dermis
    D a and c repairs by epithelial migration, heals without formin a scar
  28. 28 the ability of cartilage and bone tissues to regenerate following an injury is dependent upon which of the followimg conditions?
    D a and b --undamaged covering layer of dense connective tissue, proximity to blood vessels, activation of existing osteocytes and chondrocytes that divide, proximity to blood vessels…
  29. 29 the stem cells of the epidermis are which cells and are responsible for reproducing which cells of the skin?
    D keratinocytes: keratinocytes, merkel cells
  30. 30 the skin glands that empty into hair follicles and produce a secretion that is rich in fatty acids that waterproofs and conditions the hair andskin are
    C sebaceous
  31. 31 Every surface we touch is covered with bacteria, viruses or fungal spores. Why doues our skin not become overwhelmed by microbial growth?
    C low ph of skin secretions injibits microbial growth
  32. 32 which of the statements below is NOT true concerning hair?

  33. 33 melanin that is produced by melanocytes
    B is distrubited to surrounding keratinocytes by exocytosis from melanocytes
  34. 34 the skin is an effective regulator of body temperature because
    A extensive capillary beds in the dermis bring blood flow close to the surface of the skin
