ciliated epithelium n.
Epithelium having cilia on the surface not attached to another cell or structure.
When deeply placed, they are lined by cylindrical or ciliated epithelium and contain a glairy mucoid fluid.
The outer layer of this is a ciliated epithelium or layer of cells.
These tumours sometimes become cystic, the cysts being lined with ciliated epithelium and containing colloid material.
A most interesting quality of cell life is motion, a beautiful form of which is found in ciliated epithelium.
Flagellated epithelium is especially found in the cnidaria and platodes; ciliated epithelium mostly in the vermalia and mollusca.
In all probability, also, the ciliated epithelium which lines the air-passages functionates with reduced activity.
