					     Pseudostratified Columnar
            Epithelium
• Appears layered
  because the nuclei are
  located at different
  levels
• Contain Goblet Cells
• Have cilia
• Used in respiratory
  functions
Stratified Squamos Epithelium
               • Cells divide in the
                 deeper levels, closer to
                 the basement
                 membrane
               • Forms the Epidermis
               • Keratin – water
                 proofing protein
               • Oral cavity, esophagus
  Stratified Cuboidal Epithelium
• 2 or 3 layers of
  cuboidal cells
• Lines the ducts of the
  mammary glands,
  sweat and salivary
  glands and the
  pancreas
Stratified Columnar Epithelium
               • Superficial layer of
                 columnar cells over a
                 inner layer of cuboidal
                 cells
               • Male urethra and parts
                 of the pharynx
       Transitional Epithelium
• Changes in response
  to increased tension
• Tissue consists of
  several layers of
  cuboidal cells
• Urinary bladder and
  ureters
