Spatial organization of AB3 two-layer epithelium

The next model of spatial organization of a two-layered sensory epithelia consisting of sensory (A) and supporting (B) cells in ratio AB3. From left (I) - topological sceleton of cell`s sheet, next (II) - 3D cellular shape; (III) series of mosaics a - d, demonstrate the contiguity of neighboring cells at appropriate levels. Right part (IV) shows pattern of cell connections at the corresponding levels of real tissue. From Savostyanov et al. 2000.
