Epithelial mesoderm; a layer of cuboidal epithelium cells, formed from a portion of the mesoderm during the differetiation of the germ layers. It constitutes the boundary of the cœlum.
a layer of simple squamous epithelium that lines serous cavities
Membranous tissue covering internal organs and internal body surfaces.
A thin layer of flattened cells, derived from mesoderm, that lines body cavities and covers internal organs.
(mehz'-o-THEE-lee-uhm) A simple squamous epithelium lining parts of the body's ventral cavity.
Mesothelium is the epithelium that lines the walls and covers the contents of the thoracic, pericardial, and abdominal cavities of the body. It is almost always classified as simple squamous epithelium.
a tissue layer that lines the heart, abdomen, chest cavity, and lungs
membranous tissue which originated in the embryonic mesoderm and covers internal and external organs (Anatomy); membranous lining of the embryonic body cavity (Embryology).
A layer of specialized cells forming a thin membrane that lines certain body cavities: where it covers the lungs and the inner surfaces of the chest wall, it is called the pleura; where it covers the organs of the abdominal cavity and the inner surfaces of that cavity, it is called the peritoneum; where it constitutes the sac that surrounds the heart, it is called the pericardium.
A simple squamous epithelium that lines one of the divisions of the ventral body cavity.
epithelium originating in the embryonic mesoderm; lines the primordial body cavity
Tissue formed by specialized cells lining the chest, abdominal cavities, and the outer surface of most internal organs. Mesothelium helps protect the organs by producing a lubricating fluid that allows the organs to move.
a membrane of cells that covers several internal organs and body cavities that secretes a lubricating fluid that aids in proper movement.
tissue formed by specialized cells lining the chest, abdominal cavities and outer surface of most internal organs. The mesothelium produces a lubricating fluid that helps organs by enabling them to move.

the thin layer of mesodermal epithelial cells that forms the pleura, peritoneum, pericardium.
Thin membrane that covers the body's organs and lines internal cavities. Called the pleura in relation to the lungs; the peritoneum in the abdomen, and the pericardium in relation to the heart. Also exists on structures such as the ovaries and testes.
Tissue that forms a lining around the chest, abdominal cavity and other organs. This tissue produces a lubricant fluid that protects organs and allows them to move.
Thin layers of tissue that surround organs and body cavities, such as the lungs or abdomen.
A thin membrane that lines the chest and abdomen
the lining of a body cavity
the layer of flat cells lining the body cavity of the embryo; in the adult, it forms the simple squamous epithelium that covers the true serous membranes of the body. Mesothelium is derived from mesoderm.
Type of epithelium which lines some internal body cavities
The mesothelium is a membrane that forms the lining of several body cavities: the pleura (thoracal cavity), peritoneum (abdominal cavity) and pericardium (heart sac). Mesothelial tissue also surrounds the male internal reproductive organs (the tunica vaginalis testis) and covers the internal reproductive organs of women (the tunica serosa uteri).
