M1 FINAL EXAM HISTOLOGY - USEFUL INFORMATION

 

The final exam, both practical and theoretical will cover histology of systems and organs.                         

LIST OF STRUCTURES TO BE IDENTIFIED IN ELECTRON MICROGRAPHS DURING THE LAB EXAM

The electron micrographs presented during the lab exam will be slightly different from

those shown at the labs. All the micrographs listed below can be found in the folders used

during the labs and in the textbook.

 

1. Circulatory system: capillary vessel (continuous or fenestrated) in cross-section

2. Respiratory system: air-blood barrier, pneumocyte type II

3. Urinary system: filtration barrier, proximal & distal tubule cell

4. Digestive system: taste bud, parietal cell, intestinal absorptive cell, goblet cell,

      sinusoidal and canalicular domains of hepatocyte, pancreatic exocrine cell

5. Endocrine system: steroid-producing cell, beta cell of the pancreatic islet, DNES

     (enteroendocrine) cell in epithelium

6. Male reproductive system: Leydig cell with Reinke crystals, spermatozoon tail

     in cross-section

7. Female reproductive system: primary ovarian flollicle with oocyte, zona

     pellucida and follicular cells, placental barrier

8. Eye: photoreceptors (outer/inner segments), lens fibers
