A moist mucous secreting lining of body cavities open to the exterior e.g. the bowel, mouth, nose, vagina. In bowel, enables contents to "slide".
tissue lining tubular structures such as the digestive tract
The lining of the gastrointestinal tract, the mucosa is a moist layer of epithelial (surface) cells with digestive functions and glands that secrete mucus. Layers of connective tissue lie under the mucosa.
Any epithelium that secretes mucus, such as the mucous membrane lining the alimentary canal.
The lining of the mouth and gastrointestinal tract.
The innermost tunic or "lining" of body cavities that are exposed to the exterior (e.g. digestive, reproductive and respiratory tracts). The same as "mucous membrane".

Soft tissue that lines certain parts of the body such as the mouth and tongue.
the moist tissue that lines some organs and body cavities (such as nose, mouth, lungs) and secretes mucous (a thick fluid). Also known as mucous membrane.
a mucous membrane or moist tissue that lines the hollow organs and cavities of the body
The moist, inner lining of some organs and body cavities (such as the nose, mouth, lungs, and stomach). Glands in the mucosa make mucus (a thick, slippery fluid). Also called mucous membrane.
The inner layers of the wall of the digestive tract, mucous membranes.
a mucous membrane or the moist tissue layer that lines a hollow organ or body cavity.
The membrane covering canals and cavities that open on the outside of the body, such as the gastrointestinal tract and the respiratory tract. Also called mucous membrane.

A mucous membrane, or tunica mucosa.
Mucous membrane or lining of body cavities (digestive tract, airways), rich in glandular cells, constantly producing fresh mucus to replace mucus that is worn or carried away.
