Histology - Simple columnar epithelium, nonciliated


This section of tissue is from the mucosal lining of the jejunum of the small intestine. Note the simple columnar epithelium with a brush-border of microvilli that help vastly increase the surface area. Observe the large mucous producing goblet cells that are present in the epithelium.
