Caption: Light micrograph of a section of the human small intestine. The epithelial lining of the small intestine is heavily folded & lined with finger- like projections, or villi; 7 feature in this image. Intestinal villi are lined by a simple epithelium (pink cells with red nuclei) that is continuous with the circular Crypts of Lieberkuhn that lie at their base. Enterocytes and goblet cells, the two main cell types found in the epithelium, are involved in absorption & digestion of nutrients. The core of each villi contains blood & lymphatic vessels. The blue- staining muscularis mucosae lies beneath the crypts. Magnification: x50 at 6x7cm size.
