Simple squamous epithelial cell
By seamus Malone
Since it is a thin layer of tissue, a lot of it is the cell membrane.
The nuclei are in the middle of the cell surrounded by cytoplasm.
Simple squamous epithelium is found in locations where rapid diffusion or filtration take place. In the kidney, simple squamous epithelium lines the Bowman’s capsule and the glomerulus . In this case, the ability of simple squamous epithelium to provide rapid filtration and diffusion is instrumental to the kidney's function, as the kidney filters about 180 liters of blood per day.
