== == Cilia are microtubule-based hair-like organelles that

extend from the surface of almost all cell types of the human

body.

Cilia are hair-like projections that move in a sweeping motion to

move things along. For instance there are cilia in the female's

fallopian tubes to sweep the egg towards the uterus, and there are

cilia in the respiratory tract to sweep inhaled particles back up

towards the mouth to get them out of the lungs.

Hair-like extensions that protrude from the surface of some

unicellular organisms and from some cells in multicellular

organisms.

A cillia is a small hairlike structures that move small particles

of dirt out of the respirtory system(small hair looking things that

move clumps of dirt out of the respirtoy system) :). LOL. Hope this

answer helps with science. I know it did for me !!! A cillia is a

cillia are a kind of flagellate that help a paramecium or any

protist that has them move around

All of the airways have small hairs called Cillia

Cilia is Hairlike projections in the nose that increase the surface

area of a cell, increasing it's ability to trap dust, pollen, and

other foreign matter to prevent it from entering the nasal

cavity.

tiny hairs that trap pathogens.

Cilia are very small, hair like organelles. They line the surface

of different cells and beat in a rhythmic way that produces waves.

These waves move ciliate protozoans and liquids down the internal

epithial tissue in many animals.
