1 Root Words Integumentary and Reproductive System Heather Wipijewski CVT ALAT This workforce solution was funded by a grant awarded under the President’s Community-Based Job Training Grants as implemented by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.

2 FUNCTIONS ► Consists of skin and its appendages (glands, hair, fur, wool, feathers, scales, claws, beaks, horns, hooves and nails.) ► One of the largest organ systems in the body. ► Skin – Plays a role in immunologic system, water- proofs the body, prevents fluid loss, provides species-specific coloration and provides a site for Vitamin D synthesis. ► Cutane/o, derm/o, dermat/o -derma

3 LAYERS ► Epidermis – Outermost or most superficial layer of skin. ► Epi- = above dermis = skin ► Several layers thick ► Doesn’t contain blood vessels. ► Depends on deeper layers for nourishment. ► Thickness varies based on location. ► Thickets layers are found in foot pads and teats. Epidermis

4 LAYERS CONT. ► Dermis – Layer directly deep to the epidermis. ► Composed of blood and lymph vessels, nerve fibers and the accessory organs of the skin. ► Contains connective tissue. ► Subcutaneous – Located deep to or under the dermis. ► Composed of connective tissue. ► Contains a large amount of fat.

5 GLANDS ► Sebaceous – Oil glands. ► Secrete an oily substance called sebum. Seb/o ► Located in the dermis ► Closely associated with hair follicles. ► Sebum is released from its gland through ducts that open into the hair follicles. ► Moves to skin surface where it lubricates the skin. ► Sweat – Located in the dermis ► Divided into eccrine and apocrine glands. ► Eccrine – produce and secrete water, salt and waste (sweat) and are located in various regions of the body depending on species. ► Apocrine – Found throughout the body. Secrete a strong smelling substance into the hair follicles.


7 HAIR ► Rod like fibers made of dead protein cells filled with keratin. ► Pil/i, pil/o, trich/o ► Hair Follicles – sacs that hold hair fibers. ► Piloerection – Act of hair standing straight up.

8 NAILS, CLAWS AND HOOVES ► All have wall, sole, and pad. ► Nails and claws – Keratin plates covering dorsal surface of distal phalanx. ► Beneath wall and sole is the connective tissue dermis, which contains numerous blood vessels and nerve endings. This is known as the quick ► Onych/o = claw Onychectomy = declaw

9 NAILS, CLAWS AND HOOVES CONT. ► Hooves – Horny covering of the distal phalanx in hooved animals – equine. ► Some have cloven or split hooves – ruminants and swine.

10 REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM ► Responsible for producing offspring. ► Theriogenology (thēr-ē-ō-jehn-ohl-ō-jē) – study of animal reproduction ► Genitals – genit/o

11 MALES ► Scrotum – External pouch that encloses and supports the testes. ► Testes are supported outside the body so they are at a lower temperature than body temperature – which is needed for sperm production. ► Scrot/o ► Perineum – Area between the scrotum (vulvas in females) and anus perine/o

12 MALES CONT. ► Testes – Male sex glands that produce spermatozoa. ► Orch/o orchi/o orchid/o test/o testicul/o ► Develop in fetal abdomen and descend into scrotum before birth. ► Testes are suspended in scrotum by the spermatic cord. ► Divided into compartments that contain coiled tubes called the seminiferous tubules. ► Sperm – sperm/o spermat/o

13 MALES CONT. ► Epididymis – Tube at the upper part of each testis that secretes part of the semen, stores semen before ejaculationa nd provides a passageway for sperm. ► Divided into the head, body and tail. ► Epididym/o ► Ductus Deferens – Tube connected to epidiymis that carries sperm into the pelvic region toward the urethra.

14 MALES CONT. ► Prostate gland – Single gland that surrounds or is near the urethra and may be well defined or diffuse, depending on species. ► Secretes a thick fluid that aids in motility of sperm. ► Prostat/o ► Bulbourethral gland – 2 glands located on either side of the urethra. ► Secrete a thick mucus that acts as a lubricant for sperm.


16 MALES CONT. ► Penis – Male sex organ that carries reproductive and urinary products out of the body. ► Prepuce – Retractable fold of skin covering the glans penis (part of the penis on which the urethra opens) ► Os penis – Bone encased in the penile tissue. ► Pen/I priap/o - penis

17 FEMALES ► Function – Create and support new life. ► Ovaries – Small pair of organs located in the caudal abdomen. ► Produces estrogen, progesterone and ova (eggs). ► Ovari/o oophor/o – ovaries ► Oo/o ov/i ov/o – egg ► Egg cell is an oocyte

18 FEMALES ► Uterine Tubes – Paired tubes that extend from the cranial portion of the uterus to the ovary (they are not attached to the ovary) ► Also known as oviducts and fallopian tubes. ► Salping/o ► Uterus - Thick walled, hollow organ with muscular walls and a mucous membrane lining that houses the developing embryo in pregnant females. ► Hyster/o metr/o metri/o uter/o

19 FEMALES CONT. ► Cervix – Caudal continuation of the uterus and marks the cranial extent of the vagina. ► Contains ring-like smooth muscle called spincters. ► Main fuction is to prevent foreign substances from entering the uterus. ► Cervic/o

20 FEMALES ► Vagina – Muscular tube lined with mucosa that extends from the cervix to outside the body. ► Serves as a passage for semen ► Colop/o vagin/o ► Vulva – External opening to the urogenital tract and consists of the vaginal ofifice. ► Vulv/o episi/o

21 FEMALES ► Mammary Glands – Milk producing glands in females. ► Number varies with species ► Mare, ewe and doe (goat) have 2 ► Cows have 4 ► Sows have 6 or more pairs ► Bitches and queens have 4 or more pairs. ► Udder – Mammary gland in large animals. ► Quarters – In cows – the four mammae


23 ESTROUS CYCLE ► Heat cycle ► Proestrus – period of estrous cycle before sexual receptivity. ► Secretion of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) ► FSH stimulates ovarian release of estrogen, which helps prepare the reproductive tract for pregnancy.

24 ESTROUS ► Estrus – Period in which the female is receptive to the male. FSH levels decrease. ► Ovulation occurs ► “standing heat” ► Metestrus – period after sexual receptivity. ► May be followed by diestrus, estrus, pregnancy or false pregnancy.

25 ESTROUS ► Diestrus – Period after metestrus. ► Short phase of inactivity and quietness. ► Anestrus – Period when the animal is sexually quiet. ► This phase is seen in seasonally polyestrous and seasonally monestrous animals.

26 ESTROUS - MICROSCOPICALLY proestrus anestrus estrus diestrus

27 TERMS ► Copulate – sexual intercourse ► Placenta – afterbirth ► Umbilical cord – Structure that forms where the fetus communicates with the placenta. ► Umbilicus – Structure that forms on the abdominal wall where the umbilical cord was connected to the fetus. Also known as the navel. ► Umbilic/o ► Tie – Period of copulation between a male and female during which the 2 animals are locked together by penile erectile tissue.
