What kind of cells are squamous?
Squamous cells are a type of epithelial cell. Epithelial cells are cells that line the surface of an opening. For example skin cells are epithelial because they line the opening of the skin to the outside air. The lining of blood vessels are squamous as well, because they line the surface of the blood vessels. The basic types of epithelial cells are squamous, cuboidal, columnar, and transitional. The description can become more detailed such as stratified squamous and pseudostratified columnar. Squamous cells are very thin, flat cells. An example of squamous cells stacked on top of each other (stratified squamous) would be the outer layer of your skin. In fact these squamous cells are kertatinized and contain no active nucleus, and function mainly as a barrier to your inner body.
