Glandular Epithelia. Unicellular Glands. Example: Goblet Cells from the Simple Columnar Epithelium of the Rat Small Intestine
Goblet cells occur in large numbers in the epithelium of the intestinal and respiratory tracts (see Plates 14, 18). In Fig. A, two goblet cells are depicted within insets: The cell on the left corresponds to Fig. B, the cell on the right to Fig. C.
