pseudostratified ciliated columnar epithelium with goblet cells and a lamina propria containing, in addition to connective tissue, numerous seromucous glands and in some regions many thin-walled veins that line the airways; it includes the respiratory region of the nasal mucosa [TA] (pars respiratoria tunicae mucosae nasi [TA]), mucosa of the trachea [TA] (tunica mucosa tracheae [TA]), and mucosa of bronchi [TA] (tunica mucosa bronchi [TA]). See: respiratory region of mucosa of nasal cavity.
