What are the main histologic components of the epidermis, dermis, and subcutis? The skin is composed of three layers: the epidermis, dermis, and subcutis. The main histologic components of the epidermis are keratinocytes and melanocytes. Basal keratinocytes undergo maturation to form a protective keratin layer on the surface of the skin. Melanocytes produce melanin, which provides protection against the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) light. The dermis consists of a vascularized, collagen-rich connective tissue. Skin appendages arising in the dermis include hair follicles and sweat glands. The subcutis (or hypodermis) is predominantly composed of fat cells and connective tissue. 2. What are the main functions of the skin? The main functions of the skin are protection against injury, thermoregulation, immunity, and (in an evolutionary sense) decoration. 3. Give clinical examples of a macule, patch, papule, vesicle, pustule, plaque, ulcer, and nodule.
