Epithelial Cells: Epithelial cells make up the epithelial tissue called epithelium. The epithelium covers the surfaces of organs and structures throughout the body. This includes the external surface of the body, the skin. The epithelium has a wide variety of functions, depending on the type of epithelial cell and its location. For example, in the skin, this includes protection from trauma, harmful microorganisms, and dehydration. Specialized epithelium in glands secretes hormones and enzymes, and epithelium in the small intestine play a role in digestion by absorbing nutrients.
