muscular de la mucosa
tejido mucoso
Scope note: EPITELIO con células que segregan MOCO, como las CÉLULAS GLOBOSAS. Cubren o tapizan muchas cavidades, como el TUBO DIGESTIVO, las VÍAS RESPIRATORIAS y el tracto reproductor. La mucosa, rica en vasos linfáticos y sanguíneos, comprende un epitelio interno, una capa media (lámina propia) de TEJIDO CONECTIVO y una capa externa (muscularis mucosae) de CÉLULAS MUSCULARES LISAS que separa la mucosa de la submucosa.

Scope note: An EPITHELIUM with MUCUS-secreting cells, such as GOBLET CELLS. It forms the lining of many body cavities, such as the DIGESTIVE TRACT, the RESPIRATORY TRACT, and the reproductive tract. Mucosa, rich in blood and lymph vessels, comprises an inner epithelium, a middle layer (lamina propria) of loose CONNECTIVE TISSUE, and an outer layer (muscularis mucosae) of SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS that separates the mucosa from submucosa.
