Perhaps more importantly, it would significantly reduce the brinkmanship of shutdown politics, which has become all too common in recent years. This brinkmanship has harmed our political system, our economy and our international reputation, and it is well past time for it to end.

Holocrine secretion

April 13, 2017

Holocrine is a term used to classify the mode of secretion in exocrine glands in the study of histology. Holocrine secretions are produced in the cytoplasm of the cell and released by the rupture of the plasma membrane, which destroys the cell and results in the secretion of the product into the lumen.

Holocrine secretion is the most damaging (to the cell itself and not to the host of which begot the cell) type of secretion, with merocrine secretion being the least damaging and apocrine secretion falling in between.

Examples of holocrine glands include the sebaceous glands of the skin and the meibomian glands of the eyelid. The sebaceous gland is an example of a holocrine gland because its product of secretion (sebum) is released with remnants of dead cells.

SKIN FUNCTIONS

July 10, 2015

The three major components of the skin are firstly the hypodermic subcutaneous fat just beneath the skin that functions as insulation and padding for the body. Next the dermis provides structure and support and lastly the epidermis acts as protection for the body.

As the deepest section of the skin, the hypodermic fat tissue below the dermis insulates the body from cold temperatures and provides shock absorption. Fat cells also store nourishment and energy. Buttocks, palms of the hands and soles of the feet provide the thickest part. Contributing to the thinness of ageing skin, the hypodermic tissues begin to atrophy with age. Located between the hypodermic fat and the epidermis is the dermis, a fibrous network of tissue, providing structure and resilience to the skin. Major components of the dermis work together in a mesh like endothelial network composed of structural proteins collagen and elastin, blood and lymph vessels, special cells and fibroblasts. A jelly like ground substance plays a crucial role in the hydration and moisture balance in the skin.
