In multi-cellular organisms, what are specialised cells?
Cells that are suited to carry out a particluar function
1 of 10
A type of specialised cell is an epithelial cell- where are these found?
In the small intestine
2 of 10
What are the epithelial cells specialised to do?
Absorb food efficiently
3 of 10
How does the structure of an epithelial cell make them specialised to absorb food?
- They contain villi lining the small intestine to increase surface area for food absorption - They contain microvilli on the surface of the villi which are folds in their cell surface membranes, further increasing surface area

Why do epithelial cells contain lots of mitochondria?
To provide energy for the transport of digested food molecules into the cell
