Figure 3.1

Morphology of normal colon tissue. Labels show surface epithelium (SE), colon crypts (CC), goblet cells (GC), lamina propria (LP), and muscularis mucosa (MM). The crypts open to the surface epithelium—in this cross section, some of the crypts appear partially or below the surface. From Kinzler and Vogelstein (2002), original published in Clara et al.
