Caption: Ulcerative colitis. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a goblet cell (dark pink, upper left) on the mucosal surface of the bowel of a patient suffering from ulcerative colitis. This surface is covered with numerous microvilli (white dots) that absorb nutrients and secrete digestive substances. The goblet cells secrete the mucus that lines the intestinal tract. Ulcerative colitis is the inflammation and ulceration of the colon and rectum. Magnification unknown.
