Some  ...

Alveoli
...  of pulmonary surfactants. The cells release their secretion through exocytosis. Lastly, the macrophages are important in defending the alveoli from microbial invasion. They are also known as the dusT cells. Surfactants The surfactants released by the Type II cells reduce the surface tension of water. They consist of phospholipids and protein mixture. They are important in the pulmonary  ...

Neurons

It does not undergo mitoticular division but it generates by itself for recovery. - Neuroglia is the term coined for the supporT cells in the CNS. These are reproduced by limited mitotic division, however, they outnumber the neurons. They provide throughout the system general support. - Despite neurons having different  ...

Large Intestine
...  intestine both have the same basic structural tunics, although they do have quite a few differences. The large intestine is marked by the absence of intestinal villi, and the presence of ample gobleT cells that produce protective mucous in the mucosal layer. Along the large intestine, the muscularis layer has three bands referred to as taeniae coli. A lot of bulges called haustra or  ...

Small Intestine
...  referred to as brush border, describing the manner with which they form a blurred image of the edges of the epithelium. The intestinal villi is coated with columnar epithelial cells, along with gobleT cells that produce protective mucous. Every intestine’s core is made up of connective tissue. It is formed by lamina propria and it contains a great amount of lacteal (lymphatic vessels)  ...

Tunics
...  is the layers of very thin muscle tissue known as muscularis mucosae. It regulates the involuntary actions of undulating and churning to let food pass doen the gullet properly. The mucosa has gobleT cells which continually secrete mucous all over the whole gastrointestinal tract. The Sub-Mucosa The sub-mucosa is thicker than the mucosa, and it exists to assist the mucosa in its functions. This  ...

Pancreas
...  pancreas, except for the head, is retroperitoneal. The exocrine units for secretion are found in the pancreatic lobules. These units are also referred to as the pancreatic acini. The pancreatic isleT cells (or the endocrine secretion units) are found next to the exocrine units. The acini produce pancreatic juice, and each acinus contains one layer of epithelial acinar cells. Innervation to the  ...
