Name THREE (3) functions of EPITHELIUM.

Protection
Absorption
Secretion

3

This is the FREE EXPOSED SURFACE of EPITHELIUM.

Apical Region

4

This is the LOWER ATTACHED SURFACE of EPITHELIUM.

Basal Region

5

This is the NON-CELLULAR adhesive sheet of EPITHELIUM.

Basal Lamina

This is the network of fibers in the EPITHELIUM.

Reticular Lamina

7

This is made up of the reticular Lamina and basal Lamina, it ANCHORS the EPITHELIUM to the connective tissue
