Microvilli



absorbs nutrients

Nucleus

the nuclei are relatively close to one another and form a single row

the nucleus in the columnar epithelium controls the cell activity

Membrane

supports, protects cell and controls movement of materials in and out of the cell

Simple Columnar Epithelial Cells --> Simple Epithelial Tissue --> Large Intestine

Simple epithelial cells form together to create simple epithelial tissue.


Simple epithelial tissue is found in the large intestine. The cells work together to protect the lining of the intestine, so bacteria doesn't get absorbed.
