Caption: Small intestine. Light micrograph of a section through the small intestine, showing the jejunum, the section of small intestine joining the duodenum with the ileum. The mucosa (blue) consis- ts of finger-like projections called villi, covered with numerous microvilli (dark pink, epithelium). Beneath the epithelium are layers of connective tissue containing blood vessels, lymphatic ducts & muscle. Mucus producing glands (goblet cells) lubricate the food, allowing it to pass through the gut. The small intestine is the main site of digestion & absorption of food. Magnification x15 at 6x7cm size.
