Caption: Ciliated epithelial cells. Light micrograph of a stained transverse section through ciliated epithelial cells. The epithelium is made of large (pink) cells, each with a central nucleus (dark pink). At the top of each cell is a row of fine hairs (cilia). The dark pink line at the top of the cells shows the basal granules of the cilia. The dark blue line at the bottom is the basement membrane. The pale blue area at top centre is a mucus secreting cell. Ciliated epithelial cells are found in the air passages, the oviducts, in the ventricles of the brain and in the spinal column. Magnification x750 at 35mm size.
