Caption: Intestinal microvilli. Transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a section through an epithelial cell from a human jejunum (part of the small intestine), showing the densely packed microvilli. Each microvillus is approximately 1 micrometre long by 0.1 micrometres in diameter and contains a core of actin microfilaments. These tiny structures form a dense brush-like covering on the absorptive surfaces of the cells lining the small intestine. The cells absorb nutrients from digested food through the microvilli.
