Short notes on the classification of various types of glandular epithelium
The glandular epithelium is divided into two basic types’ unicellular glands and multicellular glands.
Multicellular glands are again divided into tubular and saccular. The tubular glands are again divided into simple tubular glands and compound tubular glands. The simple tubular glands may be straight, coiled or branched.
The saccular glands also called alveolar glands are divided into simple alveolar glands and compound alveolar glands.
