    About the Lecture

    The lecture Epithelial Tissue: Exocrine Glands by Geoffrey Meyer, PhD is from the course Epithelial Tissue. It contains the following chapters:

    • Exocrine glands
    • How do exocrine glands release their secretory products?
    • How are exocrine glands classified/named?
    • Mucous and serous glands
    • Lobes, lobules and cytogenesis
    • Names of ducts of glands
    • Mucosa and serosa

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Often deliver their secretion products to target cells via a duct.
    2. Mostly secrete products that directly affect adjacent epithelial cells.
    3. Only secrete mucus.
    4. Secrete their products into the extracellular space.
    5. Effect target tissues via transport of their secretion products by the bloodstream.
    1. Have short functionally significant intercalated ducts
    2. Secrete proteins
    3. Have substantial striated ducts
    4. Contain secretory cells with apical secretory granules that stain “eosinophilic”
    5. Secrete using a “merocrine” secretory mechanism
    1. Lines cavities connected to the outside of the body
    2. Lines closed cavities of the body
    3. Has a mesothelium
    4. Lines the pleural and pericardial cavity
    5. Is a special epithelium that lacks a basement membrane
