Function of respiratory system is?
: gas exchange
buffering system by maintaining pH
effects the chemistry of the blood
ACE enzyme is?
Angiotensin-converting enzyme that indirectly increases blood pressure by causing blood vessels to constrict. It does that by converting angiotensin I to angiotensin II, which constricts the vessels
main epithelium covering respiratory tube is?

Columnar ciliated cells
Goblet cells are?
Exocrine cells that secrete mucus onto the epithelial surface, to keep it moist.
It is sticky andas a consequence it traps dust and any debris that is in the air.
what is the function of cilia in the respiratory tract?
always moves in one direction away from lungs towards the nose and mouth.
The cilia swipes the mucus with a trap debris up.

Basel cells are?
found near the basement membrane
