In the walls of hollow organs Stomach, Esophagus, Intestines and Digestive System
Movement of blood involuntary
Covers the body surface
& Lines our bodies cavities
Simple Epithelial Tissue
Simple Layer of Cells
Simple Squamous Epithelium
cells are flat in shape and arranged in a single layer.
Diffusion & Filteration, Secretes lubricating substances

Simple Cuboidal Epithelium
single layer cells that are as tall as they are wide.
Secretes & Absorbs
Ducts, portions of kidney tubules
Simple Columnar Epithelium
single row of cells that are tall & closely packed together.
Absorbs and Secretes

Stratified Epithelial Tissue
Multiple layer of cells
Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelium
simple columnar cells where the nuclei is at many different height
Secretes mucus and moves it
Ciliated Tissue linning the trachea & Respiratory Tract
Stratified Squamous Epithelium
cells are flat in shape and arranged in multiple layers.
Protects from Abrasion
Lines esophagus, mouth, skin, epidermis & vagina
Stratified Cuboidal Epithelium

Stratified Columnar Epithelium
Multiple rows of cells that are tall & closely packed together.
Secretes & Protects
Males Urethra, ducts-glands
Allows urinary organ to expand & stretch. Also Protects
Lines the Urinary Bladder, Uretha & ureters.
& Transports Signals
generate and conduct nerve impulses
cells provide physical & electrical insulation.
Also remove debris.
