The Lamina epithelialis was found to consist of a basal and superficial layer. The former consists firstly of 2--4 cell layers and becomes later reduced to only one, made up to columnar cells; the latter one consists firstly of about 9 cell layers and increases then to 28--35, depending on the ruminal compartment. The epithelium shows its embryological feature, i.e. all… CONTINUE READING
