The cells lining the proximal tubule are cuboidal epithelial cells with deep basal membrane invaginations that provide a large basal surface area. The long microvilli (the brush border) lining the tubule lumen, maximize luminal surface area and make these cells ideally suited for both reabsorptive and secretory functions. [ ]

Synonyms: epithelium of proximal convoluted tubule proximal renal tubule epithelium proximale tubular epithelium epithelium of proximal renal tubule
