They are called villus (singular), and villi (plural) or microvilli.
they are called villi
hope this helped
The finger-like projections that line the small intestine is called the villi.
these finger like projections are called villi
Villi. Also the Villi are covered in Micro-villi - just the same but smaller. The function of them is to increase surface area for absorption.
The small intestine has small tiny projections called "villi". These projections increase the surface area for absorption. The large intestine however lacks these structures.
Villi, to increase the surface area for absorption.
finger like projections in small intestine are called villi to increase surface area for absorption of food in small intestine.
Microvilli for increase surface area for absorption
The small, finger-like projections in the small intestine that increase the surface area for absorption are called Intestinal Villi. Singularly they are called Intestinal Villus. Not only do they increase the amount of absorption, they also help the food move along the intestinal pathway.
They increase the surface area of small intestine and thus, increase the rate of absorption of food...
The villi are the finger-like projections found in the small intestine. The villi increase the surface area available for nutrient absorption.
The small intestine is the main digestive organ of the human body. It is where digestion is completed and nearly all absorption of nutrients into the blood stream occurs. Because it has such a big job to do, it needs a large surface area so that more nutrients can be absorbed at any one time. This surface area is provided mainly by its length. The walls of the small intestine are also covered in 'fingerlike' projections called villi, on which are more tiny projections called microvilli. These projections also significantly increase the surface area of the small intestine, to allow a faster rate of absorption.
Villi are tiny fingerlike projects that increase a cells absorption capabilities by increasing its surface area.
The cells that line small intestines have small projections on their surface called villi. These projections collectively increase the total surface area of the small intestine. This adaptation facilitates increased absorption of nutrients
Villi are tiny finger-like projections which increase absorption surface area, especially in the small intestine.
Villi and microvilli
The tiny fingerlike parts that line the walls of your small intestine are called villi. They increase the surface area of the intestine.
Sounds like a benign papilloma to me (a medical student). But I am not a doctor, and my advice means nothing, you should get it checked out by a gastroenterologist.
Villi increase the surface area of the intestinal mucosa for absorption.
Villi are fingerlike projection from a surface and in the intestine they are one cell thick with blood vessels and lacteal. The funciton is to increase the surface area of the intestine and so increasing the ammount of absorption.
