The endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things.
Consequently, what type of tissue makes up glands?
The correct answer is B. Cuboidal epithelial tissue gives rise to glands in the body. They line the surface of various ducts, glands and organs. This type of tissue is also known as glandular epithelium. For glands to develop, cells in the epithelium increase by mitosis.
What tissues make up the endocrine system?
The major glands that make up the human endocrine system include the:
- pituitary gland.
- adrenal glands.
- pineal body.
- reproductive glands (which include the ovaries and testes)
What type of tissue are endocrine and exocrine glands?
An organised collection of secretory epithelial cells. Most glands are formed during development by proliferation of epithelial cells so that they project into the underlying connective tissue. Some glands retain their continuity with the surface via a duct and are known as EXOCRINE GLANDS.
