Epithelial Cells
MeSH HeadingEpithelial Cells
Tree NumberA11.436
Annotationcoordinate with specific tissue type if pertinent; do not confuse with EPITHELIOID CELLS (type of macrophage)
Scope NoteCells that line the inner and outer surfaces of the body by forming cellular layers ( EPITHELIUM) or masses. Epithelial cells lining the SKIN; the MOUTH; the NOSE; and the ANAL CANAL derive from ectoderm; those lining the RESPIRATORY SYSTEM and the DIGESTIVE SYSTEM derive from endoderm; others ( CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM and LYMPHATIC SYSTEM) from mesoderm.
