Part Description

LP14043-1   Epithelial cells
Cells 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 the ectoderm; those lining the respiratory and the digestive systems derive from the endoderm. The cardiovascular and lymphatic systems derive from the mesoderm. Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006
