Summary Introduction

To match: Each term with their suitable description.

Explanation

Exocrine gland - c. secretes through a duct.

Epithelial tissues are classified mainly into two types based upon their structure and the type of secretion—Endocrine and exocrine glands. The gland that has the tubes or ducts that helps to transport their secretion onto an inner or outer surface is called as exocrine gland. The exocrine secretions consist of tears, mucus, digestive enzymes, saliva, breast milk, and earwax.

Endocrine gland - b. secretes a hormone.

Epithelial tissues are classified mainly into two types based upon their structure and the type of secretion—Endocrine and exocrine glands. The gland that secretes the hormones into interstitial fluid for the supply of blood all over the body is called as endocrine glands.

Fibroblast - d. collagen-producing cell.

The fibroblasts are the cells present in the connective tissues. They produce collagen and other extracellular matrix in order to keep the structural reliability of connective tissues.

Melanocyte - f. pigment-producing cell.

Melanocytes are found in the skin epidermal layer, which produces the pigments called melanin.

Neuron - a. cell in nervous tissue.

The neurons are the structural and functional unit of the nervous system. They can detect, receive, and transmit the messages from one place of body to another.

Smooth muscle - e. contracts involuntarily.

Muscle tissue can be classified into three namely skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle tissue...
