Basic Histology -- Ciliated Epithelium of Oviduct
Cilia are a surface adaptation that helps propel things along.
In the oviduct, the cilia push the egg toward the uterus.
This is oviduct.
With your study partners, find:
- the ciliated epithelium
- the underlying connective tissue ("lamina propria")
Oviduct epithelium features occasional cells with large slender
nuclei and very little cytoplasm. They look like pegs driven
between the ciliated epithelial cells. Find a peg cell.
