kidney tubules; ducts and secretory portions of small glands; ovary surface.

Function: Simple Columnar

absorption; secretion of mucus, enzymes, and other substances; ciliated type propels mucus or reproductive cells by cilliary action

nonciliated type lines most of the digestive tract (stomach to anal canal), gallbladder, and excretory ducts of some glands; ciliated lines small bronchi, uterine tubes, and some regions of the uterus.

Function: Psuedostratified Columnar

secretion, particularly of mucus; propulsion of mucus by ciliary action

Location: Psuedostratified Columnar

nonciliated type in male's sperm-carrying ducts and ducts of large glands; ciliated variety lines the trachea. most of the upper respiratory tract

Function: Stratified Squamos

protects underlying tissues in areas subjected to abrasion

Location: Stratified Squamos

Nonkeratinized type forms the moist linings of the vagina, esophagus, and mouth; keratinzed variety forms the dry membrane

Function: Stratified Cuboidal

protection

Location: Stratified Cuboidal

largest ducta of sweat glands, mammary glands, and salivary glands
