Estratificado cúbico

Stratified cuboidal epithelium.

Stratified cuboidal epithelium contains usually two o three layers of cells. The most superficial layer is composed by cells that show a cuboidal shape and rounded nucleus, which is located in the basal part of the cell. This type of epithelium is not frequent, but it can be found in the final part of the excretory ducts of large glands.
