Apical surface Microvilli Tight junction (zonula occludens) Desmosome Nucleus Basolateral surface 17 usually consist of a single layer of epithelial cells (simple epithelium). Other surfaces, such as the female cervix or the skin, are composed of many layers of epithelial cells (stratified epithelium) (Figure 2–2). Epithelial cells in different sites vary in shape. Some have a flattened shape (squamous cells) and form the lining of cavities, such as the mouth, heart, and lungs, and the outer layers of the skin.
