Junqueira's Basic Histology: Text and Atlas, Fourteenth Edition
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
The most authoritative, current, and beautifully illustrated histology text available―NEW chapter-ending multiple-choice questions review must-know material
- NEW clinical vignettes have been added to each chapter
- Full-color, easy-to-understand drawings provide just the right level of detail necessary to reinforce key concepts and facilitate comprehension and retention of text material
For more than three decades, Junqueira's Basic Histology has been unmatched in its ability to explain the function of cell and tissue structure in the human body. Updated to reflect the latest research in the field, and enhanced with more than 1,000 illustrations, most in full-color, the Fourteenth Edition reflects the most comprehensive and modern approach to understanding medical histology available anywhere. This well-regarded classic is distinguished by chapters focusing on the cytoplasmic and nuclear compartment of the cell, the four basic tissues that form the organs, and each organ system.
In response to reader demand, the legends are now concise, stand-alone summaries of the illustrations. Applauded for its visual appeal, Junqueira’s is enhanced by full-color micrographs that comprise a complete atlas of tissue sections. These state-of-the-art micrographs highlight the important features of every tissue and organ in the human body, while full-color, easy-to-understand drawings provide just the right level of detail necessary to clarify the text and make learning easier.
high-magnification TEM, the myelin sheath appears as a thick electron-dense axonal covering in which the concentric membrane layers may be visible (Figure 9–22). The prominent electron-dense layers visible ultrastructurally in the sheath, the major dense lines, represent the fused, protein-rich cytoplasmic surfaces of the Schwann cell membrane. Along the myelin sheath, these surfaces periodically separate slightly to allow transient movement of cytoplasm for membrane maintenance; at these myelin
lining; an underlying lamina propria of loose connective tissue rich in blood vessels, lymphatics, lymphocytes, smooth muscle cells, and often containing small glands; and a thin layer of smooth muscle called the muscularis mucosae separating mucosa from submucosa and allowing local movements of the mucosa. The mucosa is also frequently called a mucous membrane. The submucosa contains denser connective tissue with larger blood and lymph vessels and the submucosal (Meissner) plexus of autonomic
anticoagulant heparan sulfate proteoglycan, and high concentrations of steroids (progesterone, androstenedione, and estrogens) with binding proteins. As the antrum develops, the granulosa cells around the oocyte form a small hillock, the cumulus oophorus, which protrudes into the antrum (Figures 22–3 and 22–7b). Those granulosa cells that immediately surround the zona pellucida make up the corona radiata and accompany the oocyte when it leaves the ovary at ovulation. The single large antrum of

MEDICAL APPLICATION Conjunctivitis, or pink eye, is a condition in which the conjunctiva is inflamed usually due to bacterial or viral infection or to allergies. The inflammation increases the discharge of mucus and enlarges the microvasculature of the sclera, causing the white sclera to have a reddish appearance. Bacterial and viral conjunctivitis are contagious but have little effect on
synoviocytes. Contacting the synovial fluid at the tissue surface are many rounded macrophage-like synovial cells (type A) derived from blood monocytes. These cells bind, engulf, and remove tissue debris from synovial fluid. These cells often form a layer at the tissue surface (A) and can superficially resemble an epithelium, but there is no basal lamina and the cells are not joined together by cell junctions. Fibroblast-like (type B) synovial cells (B) are mesenchymally derived and specialized
