Caption

Lung lining. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the epithelium lining a terminal bronchiole (lung airway). The epithelium consists of ciliated (hair-covered) cells (yellow), and non-ciliated cells (pink) that secrete mucus. Rhythmic movements of the cilia move mucus and trapped particles away from the gas-exchanging parts of the lung, and towards the throat, where they can be expelled by coughing, or swallowed. Two capillaries containing red blood cells are seen at top right and top left. Magnification: x2000 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
