Mucosa

The mucosa is a thin tissue layer that lines hollow organs, such as the mouth, uterus, lungs and the urinary and digestive tracts. The glands covering this tissue release a thick fluid called mucus. It is also the most highly differentiated layer of the GI tract. Structurally and functionally, it is the most complex and important area, as key absorptive functions take place on its surface.
