Caption: Nasal lining. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a section through the epithelial lining of the nasal cavity. The cylindrical epithelial cells (dark brown, lower frame) are topped with microscopic hair-like structures known as cilia (yellow). These are covered with a sticky mucus (not seen) that traps dust and other inhaled particles. Coordinated, wave-like beating of the cilia propels the mucus to the back of the nose (pharynx), where it is swallowed. Magnification: x1,230 at 6x7cmsize. x2000 at 4x5"
