The mammalian intestine displays two distinct patterns of mucosal organization. The small intestine contains mucosal epithelial invaginations (the crypts of Lieberkühn) that are continuous with evaginations (villi) into the lumen. The colon also contains crypts of Lieberkühn, but its epithelial surface is lined by flat surface cuffs. The epithelial cells of both organs communicate with the underlying mesenchyme through a basement membrane that is composed of a variety of extracellular matrix… CONTINUE READING
