  • Abstract Dorsal and ventral epithelium of the terrestrial slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi, is simple and consists of five cell types: microvillous, ciliated, round mucous, tubular mucous and channel. Microvillous cells were similar to human intestinal epithelial cells morphologically and functionally. At the base of microvilli, pinocytic vesicles which ultimately fused to form larger vacuoles, or multivesicular bodies were present. At the edge of tail or mouth, ciliated epithelial cells possessed… CONTINUE READING
