What type of tissue lines the esophagus and forms the skin epidermis?

Stratified squamous epithelial cells are what form the top two layers of the epidermis: stratum corneum and stratum lucidum. Then stratified cuboidal epithelial cells are found in the bottom three layers of the epidermis: stratum granulosum, stratum spinosum, and stratum basale. (Stratum basale is only layer that contains nothing but mitotic cells. This layer contains melanocytes as well.) The entire epidermis, however is identified as stratified squamous because epithelial tissue is always identified by the type of epithelial tissue at the apical (top) surface.

What type of tissue makes up the epidermis?

The outer layer of the skin (epidermis) is made up of stratified squamous epithelium. If it helps, remember stratified squamous is made up of multiple layers to provide protection, like when you scrape your knee. because hopefully, there will be other layers underneath! The epidermis is composed of five layers (from the outer most layer to the deepest layer): Stratum corneum Stratum lucidum Stratum granulosum Stratum spinosum Stratum basale Stratified squamous epithelial tissue The type of tissue that makes up the cells on top and bottom of the leaf (epidermis) is dermal tissue. Epithelial tissue makes up the human epidermis.
