Animal cells

  • Myofibroblast
    A myofibroblast is a cell that is in between a fibroblast and a smooth muscle cell in phenotype.
  • Chondrocyte
    Chondrocytes (from Greek χόνδρος, chondros = cartilage + κύτος, kytos = cell) are the only cells found in healthy cartilage.
  • Club cell
    Club cells, also known as bronchiolar exocrine cells, and originally known as Clara cells (see nomenclature section), are dome-shaped cells with short microvilli, found in the small airways (bronchioles) of the lungs.
  • Parietal cell
    Parietal cells (also known as oxyntic or delomorphous cells), are the epithelial cells that secrete hydrochloric acid (HCl) and intrinsic factor.
  • Extraglomerular mesangial cell
    Extraglomerular mesangial cells (also known as Lacis cells, Goormaghtigh cells, or Polkissen cells) are light-staining pericytes in the kidney found outside the glomerulus, near the vascular pole.
  • Hepatocyte
    A hepatocyte is a cell of the main parenchymal tissue of the liver.
  • Pericyte
    Pericytes are contractile cells that wrap around the endothelial cells of capillaries and venules throughout the body.
  • Myocyte
    A myocyte (also known as a muscle cell) is the type of cell found in muscle tissue.
  • Microfold cell
    Microfold cells (or M cells) are found in the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) of the Peyer's patches and in the mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) of other parts of the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Ameloblast
    Ameloblasts are cells present only during tooth development that deposit tooth enamel, which is the hard outermost layer of the tooth forming the surface of the crown.
  • Enteroendocrine cell
    Enteroendocrine cells are specialized cells of the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas with endocrine function.
