Caption: Nose mucosa. Light micrograph of a section through the nasal mucosa, the tissue that lines the airways of the nose. Air flows through hair-like cilia, found on the upper surface of epithelial cells (pink, top), which form the top layer of the nasal mucosa. The cilia are coated in sticky mucus and serum produced by the Bowman's glands (red) in the underlying mucous membrane (yellow). These secretions serve to trap dust and pathogens. Beneath the mucous membrane is a layer of supportive cartilage (orange) and then bone tissue (purple).
