CROSS-SPECIES ANATOMY - ANNOTATIONS

The Basic subset of the UBERON integrated, cross-species anatomy ontology is downloaded weekly from http://berkeleybop.org/ontologies/uberon/basic.obo. For more information about this ontology see the "About" page on the UBERON website at http://uberon.github.io/about.html.

Term:pseudostratified ciliated columnar epithelium

Accession:UBERON:0010499 term browser browse the term
Definition:Epithelium composed of a single layer of cells, appearing as layered because the column-shaped cells vary in height so the nuclei are at different levels. The basal portions of all the cells are in contact with the basement membrane. It lines the respiratory system and the male reproductive tract. The cilia in the respiratory tract are motile, while the stereocilia in the male reproductive tract are immobile.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: epithelium pseudostratificatum columnare ciliatum (trachea et bronchi)
 xref: FMA:13146;   NCIT:C13181;   UMLS:C0506992
