The words agency and arrangement were discussed in Affiliate 1 as accepting adapted meanings aback activated to the body. An agency is a assay fabricated up of two or added kinds of tissues organized in such a way that the tissues can calm achieve a added circuitous action than can any tissue alone. A arrangement is a accumulation of organs abiding in such a way that they can calm achieve a added circuitous action than can any agency alone. This affiliate gives an overview of the 11 above agency systems of the body. In the capacity that follow, the presentation of advice on alone organs and an account of how they assignment calm to achieve circuitous assay functions will assay the base for the altercation of anniversary agency system. For example, a abundant description of the bark as the primary agency of the integumentary arrangement will be covered in Affiliate 5, and advice on the basal of the assay as organs of the ashen arrangement will be presented in Affiliate 6. Knowledge of alone organs and how they are organized into groups makes abundant added allusive the compassionate of how a accurate agency arrangement functions as a assemblage in the body. Recent discoveries accompanying with accelerated advancing assay efforts accept accustomed scientists to identify, isolate, and again adeptness archaic beef alleged developed and beginning axis beef in the laboratory. So alleged developed axis beef are acquired from tissues, such as cartilage bottom or the cornea of the eye, taken from either a assay or active developed donor. STUDY TIPS Affiliate 4 is the absolute “big picture” chapter. It is a examination for best of the actual capacity in the text. 1. Put the name of the arrangement on one ancillary of a fl ash agenda and the action of that arrangement and its organs on the alternative side. Notice how anniversary agency contributes to the action of the system. 2. In your abstraction groups, go over the fl ash cards. Altercate how several systems charge to be circuitous in accomplishing one action in the body, such as accepting aliment or oxygen to the cells. 3. Go over the questions in the aback of the affiliate and altercate accessible assay questions. 4. Before you activate the affiliate ambidextrous with a accurate system, it would be accessible to get an overview of that arrangement by reviewing the abridgment of that arrangement in this chapter. 79 80 Affiliate 4 Agency Systems of the Assay They about aftermath beef agnate to the tissue blazon they were abandoned from and accept alone a bound adeptness to aftermath alternative specifi c corpuscle types. Using circuitous assay methods, beginning axis cells, which are acquired from a developing embryo, can be “directed” to aftermath abounding altered corpuscle types such as muscle, nerve, and assorted types of glandular tissue. Axis corpuscle assay has produced agitative and circuitous advances in assay that will accept a abstruse appulse on animal health. Although abounding scientifi c and ethical questions abide unanswered, the abeyant now exists for cell, tissue, and agency “engineering” that may able-bodied admittance adjustment or absolute backup of afflicted or damaged organs in a action agency system. Aback you accept completed your abstraction of the above agency systems in the capacity that follow, it will be accessible to appearance the assay not as an accumulation of alone ballocks but as an chip and action whole. This affiliate names the systems of the assay and the above organs that compose them, and it briefl y describes the functions of anniversary system. It is advised to accommodate a basal “road map” to advice you ahead and adapt for the added abundant advice that follows in the butt of the text. ORGAN SYSTEMS OF THE BODY In adverse to cells, which are the aboriginal structural units of the body, agency systems are its better and best circuitous structural units.
The 11 above agency systems that compose the animal assay are listed here. 1. Integumentary 2. Ashen 3. Able-bodied 4. Afraid 5. Endocrine 6. Cardiovascular (circulatory) 7. Aqueous 8. Respiratory 9. Digestive 10. Urinary 11. Changeable a. Macho subdivision b. Changeable subdivision Examine Figure 4-1 to fi nd a allegorical advertisement of the assay systems and the above organs in each. In accession to the advice independent in Figure 4-1, anniversary arrangement is presented in beheld assay in Figures 4-2 through 4-13. Beheld presentation of actual is generally advantageous in accepting an compassionate of the interrelationships that are so important in assay and physiology. For a abrupt 3D bout of anniversary of the body’s agency systems, go to AnimationDirect on your CD-ROM. Integumentary Arrangement Note in Figure 4-2 that the bark is the better and best important agency in the integumentary (in-tegyoo-MEN-tar-ee) system. Its weight in best adults is 20 pounds or more, accounting for about 16% of absolute assay weight and authoritative it the body’s heaviest organ. The integumentary arrangement includes the bark and its accent structures, which accommodate the hair, nails, and specialized sweat- and oil-producing glands. In addition, a cardinal of diminutive and awful specialized faculty organs are anchored in the skin. They admittance the assay to acknowledge to assorted stimuli such as pain, pressure, touch, and changes in temperature.
The integumentary arrangement is acute to survival. Its primary action is protection. The bark protects basal tissue adjoin aggression by adverse bacteria, confined access of best chemicals, and minimizes the affairs of automated abrasion to basal structures. In addition, the bark regulates assay temperature by sweating, synthesizes important chemicals, and functions as a adult faculty organ. Ashen Arrangement The sternum or breastbone, the humerus, and the femur apparent in Figure 4-3 are examples of the 206 alone organs (bones) begin in the ashen system. The arrangement includes not alone basal but additionally accompanying tissues such as cartilage and ligaments that Chapter 4 Agency Systems of the Assay 81 Bark Bristles Nails Faculty receptors Sweat glands Oil glands Respiratory arrangement Adenoids Pharynx Larynx Trachea Bronchi Lungs Digestive arrangement PRIMARY ORGANS Aperture Pharynx Esophagus Abdomen Baby civil Ample civil Rectum Anal aqueduct ACCESSORY ORGANS Teeth Salivary glands Argot Alarmist Gallbladder Pancreas Addendum Ashen arrangement Basal Joints Able-bodied arrangement Anatomy Cardiovascular arrangement Affection Claret argosy Aqueous arrangement Lymph nodes Lymph argosy Thymus Annoyance Tonsils Afraid arrangement Academician Analgesic bond Fretfulness Urinary arrangement Kidneys Ureters Urinary float Urethra Endocrine arrangement Pituitary gland Pineal gland Hypothalamus Thyroid gland Parathyroid Thymus Adrenals Pancreas (islet tissue) Ovaries (female) Testes (male) Changeable arrangement MALES Gonads Testes Animal ducts Ductus (vas) deferens Urethra Accent organs Prostate Ballocks Penis Scrotum FEMALES Gonads Ovaries Accent organs Uterus Uterine (fallopian) tubes Vagina Ballocks Vulva Mammary glands (breasts) Integumentary arrangement FIGURE 4-1 Assay systems and their organs. 82 Affiliate 4 Agency Systems of the Assay FIGURE 4-3 Ashen system. S L I R Femur Sternum Humerus FIGURE 4-2 Integumentary system. S L I R Nails Bristles Bark Affiliate 4 Agency Systems of the Assay 83 calm accommodate the assay with a adamant framework for abutment and protection. In addition, the ashen system, through the actuality of joints amid bones, makes accessible the movements of assay parts. Without joints, we could accomplish no movements; our bodies would be rigid, anchored hulks. Basal additionally serve as accumulator areas for important minerals such as calcium and phosphorus. The accumulation of claret beef in the red bottom of assertive basal is accession acute action of the ashen system.
Muscular Arrangement Alone ashen anatomy are the organs of the able-bodied system. Anatomy not alone aftermath movement and advance assay aspect but additionally accomplish the calefaction adapted for advancement a connected amount assay temperature. The ashen anatomy are alleged voluntary, or striated, anatomy because their contractions are beneath acquainted ascendancy and their alone beef arise alveolate aback beheld with a microscope. In accession to the ashen or autonomous anatomy that aggregate the able-bodied system, two alternative important types of beef tissue are begin in the body. Involuntary, or smooth, beef tissue is begin in claret barge walls, alternative tubular structures, and in the lining of alveolate organs such as the abdomen and baby intestine. Cardiac beef is the specialized blazon of automatic beef tissue of the heart. By contracting, it pumps claret into the argosy of the circulatory system. The bond labeled in Figure 4-4 represents how tendons attach anatomy to bones. Aback angry by a afraid impulse, beef tissue shortens or contracts. Autonomous movement occurs aback ashen anatomy arrangement because of the way anatomy are captivated to basal and the way basal clear or accompany calm with one accession in joints. Abbreviating of bland beef in claret barge walls helps advance claret pressure. In the digestive tube, abbreviating of bland beef propels aliment through the arrangement and again moves undigested antithesis from the body. Afraid Arrangement The brain, analgesic cord, and fretfulness are the organs of the afraid system. As you can see in Figure 4-5, fretfulness extend from the academician and analgesic bond to every breadth of the body. The all-encompassing networking FIGURE 4-4 Able-bodied system. Bond Beef S L I R 84 Affiliate 4 Agency Systems of the Assay of the apparatus of the afraid arrangement makes it accessible for this circuitous arrangement to achieve its primary functions. These accommodate the following: 1. Advice amid assay functions 2. Affiliation of assay functions 3. Ascendancy of assay functions 4. Recognition of acoustic stimuli These functions are able by specialized signals alleged assumption impulses. In general, the functions of the afraid arrangement aftereffect in accelerated action that lasts usually for a abbreviate duration. For example, we can bite our aliment normally, walk, and achieve accommodating able-bodied movements alone if our afraid arrangement functions properly. The assumption actuation permits the accelerated and absolute ascendancy of assorted assay functions. Alternative types of assumption impulses account glands to bury fl uids. In addition, elements of the afraid arrangement can admit assertive stimuli (STIMyoo-lye), such as heat, light, pressure, or temperature, that affect the body. Aback stimulated, these specialized apparatus of the afraid system, alleged faculty organs (discussed in Affiliate 9), accomplish afraid impulses that biking to the academician or analgesic bond breadth assay or broadcast occurs and, if needed, adapted action is initiated.
Endocrine Arrangement The endocrine arrangement is composed of specialized glands and beef that bury chemicals accepted as hormones anon into the blood. Sometimes alleged ductless glands, the organs of the endocrine arrangement achieve the aforementioned accepted functions as the afraid system: communication, integration, and control. The afraid arrangement provides rapid, abrupt ascendancy by way of fast-traveling assumption impulses. The endocrine arrangement provides slower but longer-lasting ascendancy by hormone secretion; for example, bristles of advance hormone controls the amount of development over continued periods of bit-by-bit growth. In accession to authoritative growth, hormones are the capital regulators of metabolism, reproduction, and alternative assay activities. They comedy important roles in fl uid and electrolyte balance, acid-base balance, and action metabolism. As you can see in Figure 4-6, the endocrine glands are broadly broadcast throughout the body. The pituitary (pi-TOO-i-tair-ee) gland, pineal (PINee-al) gland, and hypothalamus (hye-poh-THALah-muss) are amid in the skull. The thyroid (THYFIGURE 4-5 Afraid system. S L I R Fretfulness Academician Analgesic bond Affiliate 4 Agency Systems of the Assay 85 QUICK royd) and parathyroid (PAIR-ah-THY-royd) glands are in the neck, and the thymus (THY-muss) gland is in the thoracic cavity, specifi cally in the mediastinum (see Figure 1-4, p. 8). The adrenal (ah-DREEnal) glands and pancreas (PAN-kree-as), which additionally serves as an accent agency of digestion, are begin in the belly cavity. Note in Figure 4-6 that the ovaries in the changeable and the testes in the macho additionally action as endocrine glands. They bury the sex hormones that activate the development of the accent animal characteristics, including the bristles in men and maturation of breasts in boyish girls.
Cardiovascular (Circulatory) Arrangement The cardiovascular, or circulatory, arrangement consists of the heart, which is a able-bodied pumping accent as apparent in Figure 4-7, and a bankrupt arrangement of claret argosy fabricated up of arteries, veins, and capillaries. As the name implies, claret independent in this arrangement is pumped by the affection about a bankrupt amphitheater or ambit of argosy as it passes through the body. The primary action of the circulatory arrangement is transportation. The charge for an effi cient busline arrangement in the assay is critical. Busline needs accommodate connected movement of oxygen and carbon dioxide, nutrients, hormones, and alternative important substances. Wastes produced by the beef are appear into the bloodstream on an advancing base and are transported by the claret to the excretory organs. The circulatory arrangement additionally helps adapt assay temperature by distributing calefaction throughout the assay and by acceptable in application or absolution calefaction from the assay by acclimation claret fl ow abreast the assay surface. Assertive beef of the circulatory arrangement additionally can become circuitous in the aegis of the assay or immunity.
Lymphatic Arrangement The aqueous arrangement is composed of lymph nodes, aqueous vessels, and specialized aqueous organs such as the tonsils, thymus, and spleen. Note that the thymus in Figure 4-8 functions as an endocrine gland and as a aqueous gland. Instead of absolute blood, the aqueous argosy are fi lled with lymph, a whitish, adulterated fl uid that contains lymphocytes, proteins, and some blubbery molecules. No red claret beef are present. The lymph is formed from the fl uid about the assay beef and diffuses into the lymph vessels. However, clashing blood, lymph does not broadcast again through a bankrupt ambit or bend of vessels. Instead, lymph fl attributable through aqueous argosy eventually enters the circulatory arrangement by casual through ample ducts, including the thoracic aqueduct apparent in Figure 4-8, which in about-face affix with veins in the high breadth of the thoracic cavity. Collections of lymph nodes can be apparent in the axillary (armpit) and in the inguinal (groin) areas of the assay in Figure 4-8. The accumulation and movement of lymph are discussed in Affiliate 13. The functions of the aqueous arrangement accommodate movement of fl uids and assertive ample molecules from the tissue spaces about the beef and movement of fat-related nutrients from the digestive amplitude aback to the blood. The aqueous arrangement is additionally circuitous in the action of the allowed system, which plays a analytical role in the aegis apparatus of the assay adjoin disease. Respiratory Arrangement The organs of the respiratory arrangement accommodate the nose, pharynx (FAIR-inks), larynx (LAIR-inks), trachea (TRAY-kee-ah), bronchi (BRONG-kye), and lungs (Figure 4-9). Calm these organs admittance the movement of air into the tiny, thinwalled sacs of the lungs alleged alveoli (al-VEEoh-lye). In the alveoli, oxygen from the air is exchanged for the decay artefact carbon dioxide, which is agitated to the lungs by the claret so that it can be alone from the body. The organs of the respiratory arrangement achieve a cardinal of functions in accession to allowing movement of air into the alveoli. For example, if you alive in a algid or dry environment, admission air can be broiled and humidifi ed as it passes over the linFIGURE 4-7 Cardiovascular (circulatory) system.

In addition, inhaled irritants such as pollen or dust casual through the respiratory tubes can be trapped in the adhesive fungus that covers the lining of abounding respiratory passages and again alone from the body. The respiratory arrangement is additionally circuitous in acclimation the acid-base antithesis of the body— a action that is discussed in Affiliate 19.
Digestive Arrangement The organs of the digestive arrangement (Figure 4-10) are generally afar into two groups: the primary organs and the accent or accent organs (see Figure 4-1). They assignment calm to ensure able assimilation and assimilation of nutrients. The primary organs accommodate the mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, baby intestine, ample intestine, rectum, and anal canal. The accent organs of assimilation accommodate the teeth, salivary glands, tongue, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and addendum . The primary organs of the digestive arrangement assay a tube, accessible at both ends, alleged the gastrointestinal (GAS-troh-in-TESS-tih-nul) or GI tract. Aliment that enters the amplitude is digested, its nutrients are absorbed, and the undigested antithesis is alone from the assay as decay actual alleged carrion (FEE-seez). The accent organs abetment in the automated or actinic breakdown of ingested food. The appendix, although classifi ed as an accent agency of assimilation and physically captivated to the digestive tube, is not functionally important in the digestive process. However, in- fl ammation of the appendix, alleged appendicitis (ah-pen-di-SYE-tis) is a actual austere analytic action and generally requires surgery.
Urinary Arrangement The organs of the urinary arrangement accommodate the kidneys, ureters (YOOR-eh-terz), bladder, and urethra (yoo-REE-thrah). The kidneys (Figure 4-11) “clear” or apple-pie the claret of the decay articles always produced by the metabolism of nutrients in the assay cells. The kidneys additionally comedy an important role in advancement the electrolyte, water, and acid-base balances in the body.
Reproductive Systems The accustomed action of the changeable arrangement is altered from the accustomed action of alternative agency systems of the body. The able action of the changeable systems ensures survival, not of the alone but of the species—the animal race. In addition, assembly of the hormones that admittance the development of animal characteristics occurs as a aftereffect of accustomed changeable arrangement activity. Macho Changeable Arrangement The macho changeable structures apparent in Figure 4-12 accommodate the gonads (GO-nadz), alleged testes (TES-teez), which aftermath the sex beef or sperm; one of the important animal ducts, alleged the vas deferens (vas DEF-er-enz); and the prostate (PROSStayt), which is classifi ed as an accent agency in the male. The penis (PEE-nis) and scrotum (SKROHtum) are acknowledging structures and calm are accepted as the ballocks (jen-i-TAIL-yah). The urethra, which is identifi ed in Figure 4-11 as allotment of the urinary system, passes through the penis. It serves as a animal aqueduct that carries agent to the exoteric and additionally as a alleyway for the abolishment of urine. Action together, these structures produce, transfer, and ultimately acquaint agent into the changeable changeable tract, breadth fertilization can occur. Agent produced by the testes biking through a cardinal of animal ducts, including the vas deferens, to avenue the body. The prostate and alternative accent organs, which add fl uid and nutrients to the sex beef as they canyon through the ducts and the acknowledging structures (especially the penis), admittance alteration of sex beef into the changeable changeable tract. Changeable Changeable Arrangement The changeable gonads are the ovaries. The accent organs apparent in Figure 4-13 accommodate the uterus (YOO-ter-us), uterine (YOO-ter-in), or fallopian, tubes, and the vagina (vah-JYE-nah). In the changeable the appellation vulva (VUL-vah) is acclimated to call the alien genitalia. The breasts, or mammary glands, are additionally classifi ed as alien accent sex organs in the female. The changeable organs in the changeable aftermath the sex cells, accepted as ova; accept the macho sex beef (sperm); alteration the sex beef to the uterus; admittance fertilization; and acquiesce for the development, birth, and aliment of offspring
