Caption

Fallopian tube cells. Coloured high resolution scanning electron micrograph of cilia and micro- villi on the surface of the fallopian tube epithelium. Fallopian tubes are ducts that lead from the ovaries to the uterus. The epithelium consists of columnar cells, many of which have cilia (yellow). The cilia beat is towards the uterus, aiding transport of the egg from the ovary. Coloured red are the secretory cells with their microvilli projections. These cells secrete a substance (orange) that maintains a moist environment in the tube and may provide nutrients for the egg. Magnification: x2100 at 6x7cm size.
