Caption: Cells of the mouth. Light micrograph of squamous (flat and scale-like) epithelial cells from the human mouth. Within each cell is the nucleus (black spot). The epithelia are a diverse group of tissues that cover the entire external surface of the body and line all the hollow structures (except blood and lymph vessels). These cells rest on a basement membrane which separates the epithelium from underlying connective tissue. Blood vessels do not extend beyond the basement layer, and epithelial cells are dependent on the diffusion of oxygen & metabolites from underlying tissue. Magnification: x100 at 35mm size.
