Transitional Epithelial Cells
Structure and Function of Transitional Epithelium
Nucleus, mitochondria, and junctions.
One organ that transitional epithelial cells are found in is the bladder. The bladder is responsible for urine retention which means that it stores urine until it is disposed of. As a bladder fills it stretches to accommodate more fluid. Transitional epithelial cells sense the badder filling with liquid and change their structure so that the walls can stretch.
