Caption: Light microscopy of the epithelium lining the inner surface of the small intestine. Red stained structures are mucous-secreting goblet cells and a surface border representing microvilli with their coating of glycoproteins. Columnar blue staining cells are the intestinal absorptive cells or enterocytes that take up nutrients. Magnification x320 when printed at 10 cm.
