1. a layer of celomic epithelial cells covering the gonadal ridges;
2. the mesothelial covering of the definitive ovary.

Histopathology.--These lesions are characterized either by polypoid proliferations of elongated glands, resembling hyperplastic polyps of stomach, or polypoid growths of granulation tissue with acute and chronic inflammation of the lamina propria, and ulceration of the surface epithelium (Figure 4, B).
In all biopsy materials prepared by the immunohistochemical staining method (BondMax, Leica, Wetzlar, Germany), six separate points were given to the staining intensity at the surface epithelium, mucosal glands, and stroma of both the gastric antrum and gastric corpus.
After visualizing the surface epithelium on the screen, the objective lens was manually focused to acquire images of the corneal layers sequentially until reaching the endothelium.
(2) These tumors are thought to arise from either extraosseous remnants of dental lamina or the basal cell layer of surface epithelium, which is believed to have odontogenic potential.
During this process, mucus is propelled from the airways toward the throat by the continuous ciliary beating of ciliated cells.[34] MUC5B and MUC5AC, the main mucins of the mucus gel, are mainly produced by the goblet cells of the surface epithelium and by the submucosal glands.[33] Moreover, it has been reported that club cells can produce MUC5B in the lower airways.[35] A second constitutive defense lining, the periciliary layer, separates the luminal airway epithelium and mucin gel.
[1] The surface epithelium of tonsil is invaginated to form tonsillar crypts.
In addition, portions of the surface epithelium and superficial glands revealed adenomatous change.
SC shows a biphasic histologic appearance with surface epithelium showing features of mild dysplasia to invasive carcinoma and an atypical stroma composed of fusiform cells giving a fibrosarcoma-like appearance [3, 6].
When the injury damaged only the ocular surface epithelium, including the limbus but sparing the corneal stroma, CLET was sufficient to restore corneal integrity and improve visual acuity; when the corneal stroma was involved by the injury, the corneal scarring required a subsequent keratoplasty for visual recovery [70] (Figure 4).
[46] demonstrated that ASE suppressed apoptosis in the ocular surface epithelium and albumin contained in ASE recovered ocular surface damage [46].
This tumor shows a remarkable papillary architecture, arising from the surface epithelium and in general showing indolent biologic behavior.
It is shown to be positive on ICCs and gastric surface epithelium. DOG-1 is also expressed in high amounts in KIT mutation-negative cases besides typical GIST cases (3).
