Cilia

• (n. pl.) Small, generally microscopic, vibrating appendages lining certain organs, as the air passages of the higher animals, and in the lower animals often covering also the whole or a part of the exterior. They are also found on some vegetable organisms. In the Infusoria, and many larval forms, they are locomotive organs. • (n. pl.) T...

cilia

<cell biology> Microtubular, hairlike structures that some single-celled organisms use for locomotion through liquids. They also cover the cells of certain tissues, such as the epithelium lining the lungs, and help those cells sweep away fluids or particles. Cilia are smaller than flagella. ... (09 Oct 1997) ...

Cilia

Cilia are tiny hairs which cover the inside of many mucous linings. They are found throughout the body and, by their wave-like motion, they serve to filter and transport particulate material along the surface of the mucosal lining. Respiratory cilia are responsible for helping to filter dust and debris out of inhaled air and transmitting it with mu...

Cilia

Cilia: The fine hairlike projections from certain cells such as those in the respiratory tract that sweep in unison and help to sweep away fluids and particles. Some single-celled organisms use the rhythmical motion of cilia for locomotion. Cilia is the plural of cilium, a Latin word referring to the edge of the eyelid and, much later, to the eyela...

Cilia

Small beating hairs on the outside of cells. In complex organisms like humans, these cilia may be found on cells lining the respiratory passages, where they help the flow of mucus. In simpler organisms they may aid in movement. Single-celled organisms which use cilia to move around are called ciliates.

cilia

Small hairlike organs on the surface of some cells, particularly the cells lining the upper respiratory tract. Their wavelike movements waft particles of dust and debris towards the exterior.
