Glandular epithelium develops from

a) Proliferation of epithelial cells into the connective tissue

b) Proliferation of connective tissue into the epithelial cells

c) Proliferation of epithelial cells into the muscular tissue

d) None of the above

Answer: a) Proliferation of epithelial cells into the connective tissue

Explanation: Glandular epithelium develops from the proliferation of epithelial cells in the fetus projecting into the underlying connective tissue. It is shaped as cuboidal or columnar. They are connected with the surface epithelium through ducts. They later develop into exocrine glands with ducts, or into endocrine glands where the ducts regenerate. The glandular epithelium is responsible for the secretion of different hormones.
