1 Histology of Vocal Folds The vocal folds can be differentiated into three main layers, the cover, transition, and body. The cover consists of an outer epithelium or mucosa, basement membrane or basal lamina, and the 8 Human Respiratory Viral Infections superficial layer of the lamina propria. The epithelial covering of the anterior glottis is several cell-thick stratified squamous epithelia. The posterior glottis is covered by pseudostratified ciliated epithelium. The surface of epithelial cells forms microvilli, which help to spread and maintain a layer of mucous over the surface.
Dendritic and Langerhans cells have long cytoplasmic extensions and elicit immune response. The Langerhans cells are believed to function as antigen-processing and antigen-presenting cells and also stimulate proliferation of T-cells . Lymphocytes are present throughout the conducting airways and involved in processing and reacting to the antigen. Some mast cells are also found in airway epithelium . 10 Human Respiratory Viral Infections The basement membrane attaches the epithelium to the underlying connective tissue by means of hemidesmosomes and adhesion molecules.
